I read on another thread how this site has helped another user and that for them it has been a form of therapy.
For me YES, JWN has most certainly been a form of therapy.
I recall the days I first came to JWN (in 2004) and couldn't believe I had found people who were of the same opinion as myself in regards to the Society.
It was this site that led me to reading Ray Franz's book 'Crisis of Conscience' which I read twice within a week. It also led me to JW facts that goes into every nook and cranny regarding the Society's teachings, policies and history.
Note: I also visit many other sites and watch you tube videos a lot, but gravitate here most of the time.
Coming here to express my inner most thoughts and feelings has helped me no end and allows me to overcome my frustrations.
It has also given me some powerful advice eg not rushing in and confronting the elders and getting myself disfellowshipped. I was almost on the verge of dissasociating, but came here first to look at experiences and seek advice. How grateful I am for that as dread to think the mental pressure I might have put myself through if I had.
It was this site where I learned just how serious and ugly the societies shunning policy really is. I also really enjoy reading about other people's experiences and have learned so much from these.
JWN has helped me keep things in perspective and I am thankful for that.
