Hi Cerise welcome to the forum. Don't take Nathan's comments personally, he is equally unpleasant to everybody. He's like Jack Nicholson but not as funny.
The Watchtower is a very small world where 'six degrees of separation' is more like 3 or 4. I would suggest avoiding mentioning your JW past to anybody you don't know well. Don't be tempted to bait the idiots at the trolleys either.
Best wishes, it looks like your set for a new life.
