I'm disabled & in the 1970's when I was swept up in the armageddon panic that was rampant, I needed seriously major surgery. I was so afraid to have a blood transfusion even tho I was pregnant, the doctor wouldn't do the surgery at first. Eventually he had no choice. I can't believe I put us in so much danger. We both made it through but I was sick for months. Fear does terrible things to people & cults/jws revel in their control thru fear.
There was a family I knew, (very close to the time I got DF'd) that had a son in a terrible car accident. The doctors even tried to get a court order, but it fell through and the son died on the operating table. It made me nauseous.
I remember my folks and the other brothers talking about how strong the family was and how they would be richly rewarded for their faith. I remember thinking how many times the bible said that God is love and that life was his greatest gift to man and wondering what the hell was everybody thinking??
