    Welcome gabcol, so nice to hear another person is free. It sounds like you've been through the wringer several times over and as Elton John would say "still standin." Good onya mate.

    Welcome gabcol. I love that do many lurkers finally take the step to introduce themselves. You sound like a true survivor and a decent human being. Great to hear that your mother has contact with you, too. I appreciated you sharing your story with us. Thank you.

    I appreciate your story, I find many similarities to mine.

    When you finally let go of something, the universe delivers.

    I wish for you whatever your heart desires!

    Welcome, Gabcol. You might be our first Australiamerican on the board.

    I wonder what part of America you were from. I didn't know some congregations actually telling people they couldn't date. That's pretty severe.

    Glad you've found a place that feels like home to you. And, welcome to the board.

    Also, Giordano, how did you end up in Virginia? That's a long way from the beach! Any kinds of rivers or lakes around? I would have a hard time giving up living so close to the beach. I'd actually love to move to the beach to retire!

    Welcome Gabcol, it sounds like you've been on a number of journeys and made it through okay.

    Thank you again everyone> It's nice to be in company with people who understand what it's like. I may not be able to comment alot on newer stuff as I am from the time when we used books. When a witness came to my door, I actually asked her if she misses using the books and she said she did, so I'm glad I'm not the only one hahaha. Anyway, grreatteacher, I'm originally from wisconsin
