I am just now dealing with being abbused as a child by my older brother. I think it started around age five but I can't be sure. I am married to a wounderful man whom was also abbused as a child and we are now going through some things. He knows of my abbuse but does not know the details as I am just now fasing them. I live in the same town as my older brother and still hang out with him is this wrong. I am so confused, do I tell my parents my older sister of just keep this to my self??? need some advise

((((MadAries)))), I`m really sorry you went through this. You are definitely not alone. From what I know, there are no right or wrongs of going about this. You work through this as you are able to. I would recommend working with a therapist who specializes in adult survivors of sexual abuse.

Your first responsibility is to yourself and your well being. Begin by healing your own wounds and you will begin to have the courage to tell those involved. I would say that your brother will probably be the first person you talk to about this. All in good time. Get yourself a therapist first. All the best!!

Is your husband also wishing to deal with his issues?

Keep posting.

Yes...find a therapist and be honest with that person. My experience is similar to yours. It's a very difficult thing to face up to. Do what comfortable for you and never be afraid to tell the truth. Even if you write down and then burn it. And be gentle with yourself. It's so easy to bully yourself...you were innocent and what your brother did was wrong. Don't feel guilty and don't punish yourself. I'm sending you some ((love))
