I swapped my JW prison for an abusive marriage. Now I am free of both.
My husband targeted me as a JW and managed to isolate, manipulate and control me for 15 years. I was so naive and trusting. I was so used to being controlled by the witnesses, I didn’t realise what he was doing.
I had 3 major suicide attempts last year and struggle with my mental health. Sometimes I feel like I’m going crazy. He told me so many lies over the years and “gaslighted’ me, I still doubt my own judgment.
I feel like I’ve wasted the last few years running around trying to please first the witnesses then my husband and I was never good enough.
Thank you for listening.
God bless you all.
