Hey Little Witch!! Boy can I relate! I was born into the cult, and when I was 8 my mother was disfellowshipped. Dad got custody in the divorce and he married a JW when I was 12. She brought two kids to the union and I had three brothers, so altogether there were 6 kids. But her two were perfect, while we were filled with every evil. My worst offence was that I looked like my mother. If she could have smacked my face OFF, they would have both praised Jah!! We also were filled with terror of the demons who raged all around us. Eventually I decided that since Jehovah hated me and therefore would never protect me from the demons...If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. I was just sooo tired of being so sad and scared and sick all the time. I was a "weirdo" at the Hall, and a weirdo at school. No wonder I attemped suicide!!
Reading the stories, I can't help but think that I should write a book. I have lived every story of childhood abuse!! Spousal abuse has also been part of my life.
Anyhow, we survived, and if we could, anyone could. I guess. I am personally involved in spreading the word to my neighbours and friends about the Silent Lambs site. Hopefully my small contribution will help someone protect their children. "And you shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free' I never knew the real truth until I left the cult. Now, after years of deprogramming, I am FREE.
Welcome to the FREE WORLD!! Krazylady
