I am sorry that on my first post I am asking for help and advice but I am at my wits end.
I have been brought up a witness all my life and it is all I know.
I am an ex-elder and pioneer and I don't know anybody outside of the congregation.
I have been unhappy for so long and wanted to leave. I tried to slip away but they would't have it and now that I have expressed doubts they are pushing for me to disassociate myself because they think I am apostate which I am not.
I have lost all my association and am going to have to leave my family home.
I don't have anywhere to go and don't have any non JW friends. I pioneered for years so have no money or savings.
After always having a network to support me, the thought of being alone terrifies me and I am at my wits end.
Has anybody else on this forum gone through this? If so, I would love to know what happened and how you managed.
Thank you so much.
