because some of these people struggled with mental health issues before they became witnesses and some came from families whose members had a history of mood and/or anxiety disorders.
very true. I came into the Org in the midst of major post partum depression. I had also come from a family background that left much to be desired. So sad that these types are preyed upon by groups such as the WT org. Wouldn't it be wonderful if organizations like this actually helped people with their problems offering support and counceling and real knowledge that could help a person grow strongerand more mentally balanced? Instead the WT compounds these problems and feeds depression, anxiety and the such with their teachings and religious routines. Most of the people I know who are still in there are getting worse by the year and they are taking more meds to control their sanity/insanity. When I have any encounters with these people I don't feel well either. I am much healthier and happier when I am away from anything or anybody that has to do with the WT borganization.
