Hello everyone. I just joined this sight today. I'm hoping to find people here with similar experiences or have experience with similar situations or just any advise or feedback.
First. My quick life story.
I was born into JW. 1971. Both Mother and Father were JW. There were 4 children, me the youngest. When I was quite young, my dad became an elder. My oldest brother turned 18 when he was diagnosed with Leukemia. About 3 months later he died. I remember the blood issues landing my family on the news.
My oldest sister was baptized fairly young. At 18, she was disfellowshipped for smoking and was immediately kicked out of our home by my father.
My other brother who is a year older than me were 14 and 15 years old when I couldn't take our forced lifestyle anymore. I had a melt down while my dad was at work. My mom was waiting for it to happen. She was tired too. She took me to a hospital and a week later I went home. My dad had moved out.
Im 45 now. Eventually I got my life together and am doing well. I went to visit my dad 2 days ago. It's been 15 years. It got me thinking about the JW Organization. So I started researching it online for the first time. Holy Crap!!!! I never thought I would see all that proof about "The Truth" in my lifetime. I'm still blown away!!
Anyways. I am going to get extremely well prepared and make my dad think he's helping me and let him watch me realize why JW is not what I choose to believe.
That's my plan. Thanks for reading.
