    Hello Nigel and Welcome!

    Thanks for sharing your story.

    Welcome Nigel.

    It's amazing to me how so many of us, as we have grown older, are able to look back on our lives and see it as a story book. Almost as a text book. We see that because this happened, it led to this. This incedent led to this depression. As we trace back... it most all leads to the WT.

    Thanks dad.

    Welcome to the board, Nigel.

    Glad you find us "a decent bunch". Hope you can stay and heal or joke around with us, too.

    Hey Bryan,

    You said:

    Thanks dad.

    Did I miss some other clue or is Nigel your dad?

    Hi Nigel,

    What a story! I hope you find this board encouraging there are many of us who have been through differing experiences. I think you have the right attitude in not getting angry or bitter. Some of the information here has helped me realise that; the JW's are just another religion, I am not the only one, we can laugh at it at times, support those with problems that we may have shared and find our own understanding of god if we wish.

    The more I read about the WTS, the more it washes away any guilt I may feel about leaving and the more I realise that there are many good people in the world and that I can be comfortable in it.

    I wish you well.
