I told my Mom that I tried to commit suicide and she asked me who was going to have a bible study with my son. There was no other word's from her other than that. Not even a reaction. Is that pathetic or what?
It is pathetic, but even more, it is typical IMHO.
When I was 17, I was df'd for the first time. You know how it is; no friends, no family that will so much as even give you the time of day. It was Derision day for all of them when I was df'd. My getting df'd, for them, was my just rewards for not being a big enough hypocrite and keeping my double life a secret like they were all doing. I actually had a conscience and turned myself in. No mercy, no love, no understanding. I mean, gee, I was a good-looking 17-year-old boy and there was this hot little 16-year-old sister, and we were just horny and attracted to each other. We fell in love, we had fun, we explored. During my committee meeting, the discusting old elders needed to know every little detail of our sexual encounters. God, I hate those pathetic bastards for shaming me like that.
But to make a long story even longer, I was depressed and all alone at 17. My mother was putting so much damn pressure on me to go back and get reinstated. I wasn't doing anything wrong, but she kept hammering me to get my life staightened out (at 18, yeah right) get reinstated or else she would throw me out on the street. Now I ask you, with no friends, no family, no money and no where to go, what the hell could I do???? One day when she was at her furious fanatical peak, she made that threat again. I said, "fine! You want me out of of here? I'm going to get way the hell out of here!" Right in front of her, to show her how much pain and fear I was in, I took an entire bottle of codeine pills, about 30. Did she show any regret or concern for her terrible words and actions or for my desperation? Nope. She just sneered like some evil amused demon who was getting what she wanted. It was truly the most evil expression I have ever seen on anyone's face. I just walked out of the house discusted and walked around town until the pill could take effect. I was ready to go, baby.
Tim, I believe that JW's under the influence are sadistic and excuse the expression, demon possessed. I do not understand how one human could be so hateful and evil to their own child otherwise.
Sorry to hear about your mom's non-reaction. You have my thoughts.
