i walked away from the jw religion nearly 9 years ago after "waking up" to the lies & mind games.
since then i've learned the full extent of the manipulation (thanks to websites such as this & the coc book)and have successfully overcome the emotional & spiritual crisis that i experienced the first few years after my departure.
i can say that i am at a place in my life now where i am happy, spiritually fulfilled and religion-free!

ok, in december '07, i was a little freaked out about what could happen to you if you don't pay on your student loans.. i calmed down when i found out out i don't owe that much.. in january '08, i had food poisoning for the first time.
that passed in two or three days.. in february '08, i had food poisoning again.
that passed in two days also.. however, that same week i got home from work one day, and slept for 10 hours straight.

it's funny, cause i never thought i would do this.. not that i am engaged, or even dating anyone for that matter... but i *could*.. it's such a foreign concept to me... dating someone who isn't a witness.
who doesn't understand all this.. i don't know why, but it does kinda scare me.
i think that there are certain jw teachings that i will carry with me for a long time... and what if he doesn't get it?!.

typically, by the end of the summer, i usually take off some weight due to good exercise and better eating.
then, in late fall and in the winter, it gets tough again.....what do you do to keep the weight off or if you've put a few pounds on how do you keep them off??

scientists show hallucinogen in mushrooms creates universal 'mystical' experience
using unusually rigorous scientific conditions and measures, johns hopkins researchers have shown that the active agent in "sacred mushrooms" can induce mystical/spiritual experiences descriptively identical to spontaneous ones people have reported for centuries.

i know you are sick of that phrase by now....because jdubs use it all the time when referring to 'apostates'.
they come on this forum or (people you know) generalize 'apostates' as though we are of different class...that we are no longer human.
they are obviously fed these little tid-bits about 'apostates' from the society since i am sure they don't personally know many.
