A serious question, seriously asked, with serious intent:
When you faced a judicial committee, did you suffer physically from the experience?
We have learned of sisters suffering greatly from the experience. For example, one sister in Australia went into shock during the meeting with the judicial committee (she was innocent of all charges laid against her and was a zealous publisher/pioneer at the time and had been for decades). She was taken from the JC at the Kingdom Hall by her husband and was soon in hospital where she stayed for three months. For two weeks she was in intensive care and the doctors told the family that her situation was dire. Her bowel had spasmed and blocked. She underwent surgery to remove part of her bowel in order to save her life, but this was not the end, for she underwent further surgery to remove her bowel. She is a mighty angry sister these days!
Another sister, in another state, suffered similarly from shock and for a while her blockage was thought to be cancerous. Another angry sister recalls the events. Again she was innocent of all charges.
So, do you know of other cases in other lands where people have suffered physically from the experience?
