My case is embarrassing.
Born in. Baptized at 14. DF'd at 19.
Stayed out for 15 years trying to kill myself with chemicals but always believed. (Never occurred to me to research)
Spent 5 years trying to return. Reinstated for 2 years, decided it was a cult cult and DF'ed.
6 years out now.
I consider the 44 years from birth to DF the years wasted.
