........When I first started visiting this board that is something I would have said. But I feel like I have really mellowed out. I came to the board, aggressive, rebellious, and intolerant. Though I didn’t pick fights, I certainly wasn’t sympathetic. So much has happened since my first post. As hard as it was, I’ve mended ties with my parents. I got custody of my 5-year-old nephew. My DF’d best friend had her baby.
Come on People Get a Life......
blah can't figure out how to edit my post, so this is how it was supposed to read:

Just wanted to say how much I’ve really appreciated so many of the people on here for allowing me to use bits of everyone’s personalities for my own benefit. I wanted to list everyone that I especially appreciate, but that would take too long. So here I sit, eating my own words…….
Please disregard this post. I F***ed up
Chevy of the 'no really, would someone please send me a copy of Computers For Dummies book' class
LOL @ chev
I am still trying to order that book too, but cant figure out how to order online LMAO.
No,seriously, I know what you mean. When I first came here I had only been on the internet for about a month. I mean I had only had my email set up to get in contact with ones I was reading about on Silentlambs, and then some of the links brought me over here.
I never thought in a MILLION yrs I would be addicted to a discussion board (well, actually I didn't know they exsisted) but I find myself here almost everyday and I love the fact that I have met sooooooooo many people who I can related to. I am so glad I found you guys.
And it all started when I saw Dateline. Funny how things happen that way.
I had never paid any attention till you mentioned Dateline, but you and I came to this board about the same time. I would have thought you've been here for years though.
*wondering how she should take that comment*
No I have only been here since June/July---can't remember which month, but it was one of those.
I guess since I am not working I am able to spend more time here than others.
i'm glad you're here, chevy :) this forum has helped me a lot, too.
it's awesome to be able to communicate and connect with people who know exactly where you're coming from. i don't know of any other people who have to deal with the heartache of losing their family and friends over a religion. especially one that hasn't even been around all that long. why do people even take the jehovah's witness religion seriously? that's a whole other thread. anywho...
i think it's vital to have somewhere like this forum to go to and know that you are not alone.
Yeah Jess. n chevy. I came onboard in april I think of 02. I was really surprised that there were so many anti jw sites on the internet.
It was here on this forum, that I discovered so many who were hurt like I was, by the wbts and had the same dislike for them. In my case I think it was hatred.
I have learned a lot here and it has helped me to sort things out and I don't have that strong an emotion regarding jw's any more. Can't say that for the wbts though.
I am even getting a little less obsessed with this forum. Which is pleasing to my wife, a never was jw.
Still have kids in the borg and there is some walls there but not shunning. Can't say that for my siblings and their kids. They shun me and seem to feel self satisfied about it. I have learned to pity them and feel sorry for their kids.
Can't wait for something exciting like the UN or Rand Corp issues to pop up again. That was pretty exciting and justified my thoughts about the wbts.
You might have noticed, that I distinguish between the jw's and the wbts. I don't hate them equally.
Hey Out. I did notice the difference between WBTS and JWs. It is the WBTS that I despise. I am still very sypathetic towards the JWs.
And Jes, I meant that you seemed to have made so many friends already, by the time I got here, just a few days after you. It was a compliment. It took me a whileto feel comfortable enough to just jump in.
