Welcome Pom ,the majority have gone through what you are now going through don`t let that get you down.It took me a couple of years before I shook off all the shackles that bound me.
That was about 11 years ago when I first was introduced to the internet.I am indebted to those guys forever.
At first I could not believe some of the things I was learning about the religion, continued research proved these things true.
I hope you stay around on this forum ,I have learnt and proved more about the JW religion than I ever knew in my 33 years as a Jehovah`s Witness .
What organization is ashamed of their early history that they need to continually re-define their early history .
What they say now about their origins compared to what was actually printed in there publications does not gel.
