    That the love my family had for me wasn't love at all. They didn't love me; they only loved me as a JW.

    realizing that the Core Dogma is a Lie-- WE SPEAK FOR GOD /aka- FDS-

    Lets see finding out the Truth really wasn't the Truth. Its too bad it took my departure to realize that. That is really the only regret I have. I wish all the good friends I left behind would come to that realization.

    Being baptized as a jw. I was told that would make everything much better, and I believed it. I was naive what can I say.

    That I brought this cancer into my family, that it destroyed and separated my family, and broke my parents' hearts. Once you contract the cultist cancer, it lives on and on and the grief associated with it is unfathomable. But it was "me" that opened the door and let them in, so it's all my fault ... and the nightmare never ends.

    Hey Rem, it's never too late to get that education so don't rule it out. I finally entered undergrad at the tender young age of 46, and law school 4 yrs later. Go for it, and don't let anyone or any negative thoughts hold you back.

    All the best
