I’m sorry that you had abusive parents. I’m glad that you have woken up. There are a lot of great exjw you Tubers, John Cedars, John Redwood, Fifth etc.

Books I recommend: Steven Hassan’s Combatting Cult Mind Control. He’s a licensed therapist.

This is a great book to have! Find a counselor and take the book with you. Breathe, it’s going to be okay. You have a great plan to escape! �� College will open so many doors for you. There have been lots of examples of PIMO that write their required f.s. Hours down each month but don’t do them or only do some of them. Find a JW that isn’t really into it and go on long coffee breaks or go to a park. Find rv that are not home or they are way on the other side of town. One sister in my old hall would constantly go on her return visits by herself. Just play the game; a year will go by quickly. If you’re still in high school, you have projects and homework to do so you can’t do too much extra at assemblies (make up some excuse).
What about if you got a part time job in the meantime so you are too busy to pioneer?

How about you both go to couples’ counseling?
You could probably use this book:

Please go slower with someone who is PIMI. You know that they can’t handle so many topics being lies. I know you were frustrated, but it’s not the way to get someone to wake up. Your wife has so many thoughts whirling around in her head. She may push you away.
