    yes the usual gripes about my childhood,education etc, the biggest though was marrying my jw wife, five years of total torment in which I hit rock bottom, it was toxic,abusive (violent and mental) half a decade of pure torture, there was a closely kept family secret that she was very close to leaving me standing "at the alter" god I wished she had,it was over 20 years ago and I've just got over it although the scars still remain.

    Not sure if I want to say 'you blithering idiot' or 'you lucky bastard'.

    Claudia Cardinale... stunning.

    Nah. You can try to put a positive spin on just about anything.

    I try not to have regrets. If I had a time machine and changed something it could affect the whole future. And right now I'm happy. I'm free of the cult, my husband and children are free too. My brother and sister are free. I have a wonderful little family who wouldn't exist if I hadn't been a JW. I'm looking to the future instead because that's something I have some control over.

    The only thing I keep kicking myself for is how seriously I took it all when I was a JW, how I let the guilt and shame and pressure to do more affect me. It made me physically and mentally ill for a long time. I wish I'd made up time to put on my report like I now know so many do. Instead of counting every minute and beating myself up over it.
