A New Year's Day deconversion story

Editor's Note: This just in from a brave young lady. We congratulate her and wish her all the best in her new life outside the religion.
"Hi John and Corky; Just found your website, interesting reading.

I was brought up a Christadelphian and was duly baptised.  I left in (withheld) in my early 20's. I was totally ill equipped for the normal world (I nearly wrote outside world).  As I had spent most of my life actively avoiding TV, magazines and socializing with non-believers,  I had no social support and no social skills.
It was a very bumpy ride, to actively and consciously switch my brain on, and develop skeptical thinking skills.  For a long time I had a recurring anxiety dreams of sitting in a memorial meeting without my hat on. 

I've made many mistakes along the way, but hopefully I've learned from them.   But I know it has all been worth it, to see my 2 children enjoying their life without the burden of guilt. I have had a hard time to getting rid of those memories.
I wish you luck with helping others to regain their free thought and lives."
