**I feel my life has been wasted, taken from me, yes I am bitter, I still lose sleep over it often, but I am slowly starting to feel a heavy weight has been lifted from my back.
You speak for many of us! I gave 30 years to the WTS too, but I was stupid and began it as an adult! I feel that other than deceiving me, that they sucked the life out of me, the very essence of what made me who I was---was replaced by a person I really didn't like very well.
Now I'm attempting to fill that void with many interests I wasn't allowed to pursue, and hanging out here whenever I can! LOL! We sure have a LOT of catching up to do!
