One brother even wrote a book on church life on the other side of the LC sheep-fold.

The greatest joy in my life since leaving the exclusivist LC mind-set has been finding fellowship with other believers. The internet is a great tool. You are not alone.

By the way, the hardest thing I found was to leave the LC mind-set. Even after I left physically, I would be in a church meeting and someone would be talking and I'd think, "That's not God's economy". That went on for years. It is amazing how their ideas wormed into my thinking.
