As some of you may remember from a previous post of mine, myself and my husband are in the process of fading. We began our fade in Jan 2017 and haven't been to a meeting since May 2017. To say this time has been a struggle is an understatement. It has been a lonely time for us, losing all of our so called friends. Being shunned, even to the extent of being ignored by witnesses when passing in the street. We honestly never thought that it would be this way. We expected that witnesses would no longer invite us to their houses or invite us out etc, but never thought we would be ignored to this extent.
One question I have, which sounds trivial but i would be interested if someone knew the answer. Was there a talk at the recent one day assembly about social media and making sure who you are 'friends' with on social media. I know in the past there has been said talks, but the reason I ask is that our circuit have just had their one day assembly. Since that assembly, both myself and my husband have been blocked by a few witnesses on social media and others have 'unfriended' us. Some of these ones who have unfriended us used to be our closest friends. Obviously it is hard to not let this type thing get you down, but it does. Does anyone know if they have been instructed at the last assembly to remove friends who are no longer attending meetings etc? Did they give them a reason?
