    Thank you very much.

    I was actually here before under another name but my EVIL MOTHER IN LAW.


    Somehow found me here and copied some posts to use against me at a later arguement.

    So now I remain....anonymous

    This site could prove to be one of the best things to happen to me in a long time. Why I didn't think to check google for a site concerning ex-dubs sooner is beyond me. I grow tired of trying to explain things to my loving friends and adopted family. They don't understand how my family and old friends can treat me this way. ( I was disfellowshipped when I was 18. I'm 31 now.) I have had to sit through 3 disgusting JW funerals in that time. (my mom, my sister, and my grandma.) How I had to re-raise myself when I got kicked out of the house when I got disfellowshipped. And how sometimes, even as far removed as I am now, it comes back in the back of your head, that haunting felling of "what if they're right?" Enough blathering...Just wanted to say that its cool to find an outlet like this. Thanks for the warm welcome.I look foreward to meeting as many of you as possible.

    I have lately been doing a lot of research on the relegion, and the negative results were unbelievable!! A little history about myself.... I was in the "truth" from age 4 to around 16. Then at 16 I got tired of living a double life as they like to call it. I was tired of the lame attempts that the elders tried to make with their "sheparding calls." I can remember telling them that I didnt believe that this was the truth, and after my mom found out about that I was never forced into another meeting again. But in the meantime my mother was having troubles herself with the truth. Her new husband who was such a good brother was all of a sudden facing jail time on drug related charges?? I cant believe it. ( sarcasm) I knew he was a joke from day 1. Now he never abused me or anything like that but he was a hypocrite like many of the witness'. Fastforward thru some years of moving away finally I dont have to see the elders when I am in the store, mall, or even just driving down my street looking at me like I have the plague because I was pregnant. But thats okay my son is just fine and they can all think what they want. Now for the longest I still believed everything that the witness' said but I didnt want to live such a restricted life. Recently I began to research them online and like I said before unbelievable! I am trying to share some of this with my mom but she is still too into the org. So this is a condensed version of my story.

    Low -Key many that come have to same thoughts as you " wandering if they are right" but the longer you are here and the knowledge that so many have here you will see that they DO NOT have the Truth. This place is like group therapy and i guess Truth therapy. You will be amazed as to what you don't know of the WT and how they operate. It is a real eye opener.
