I was diagnosed with depression over two years ago now. Throughout it all I've had another problem. I have a difficulty with money. I take money from "friends", I've even gone as far as using their credit card. It's not to be malicious. But the worst part is that it's not even out of neccessity. I'm comfortable, as much as a college student is. I make ends meet and even have some left over to do extras. No matter how much or how little money I have, I do this. It's almost like a compulsion. I feel immediate remorse after I've done it. I've found help for my depression, but I don't know how to find help with this. To anybody that knows me, I'm the all-american girl next door. I'm in school, I have my own apartment and car, I have a semi-good relationship with my family. I have an awesome boyfriend of almost two years. He knows everything and wants to help me, but he doesn't know how. If anybody knows of any resources or places to go, let me know.

my youngest brother (36 yrs old) needed someplace to live, so i took him in and he sexually abused my 15 yr old daughter. she only told her teacher yesterday, and our family has been devastated. we'll start family therapy next week, but she is strong and determined that he will never see her again--and i am determined that he will never hurt her again.
he's gone, to another part of the state. but he's alone, and a depressive sort--our mother died of breast cancer slowly, painfully--not a year ago--and he has no one else nearby.

i am "conflicted" because, in my mother's memory, i cannot just let him languish and fall into a depression that causes his suicide. but i must, i absolutely MUST take care of my daughter first.

how-HOW can i deal with this tragedy? my youngest brother--a 36 yr old man--has molested my only daughter. and yet he is my brother, and our family has always been so close. he has denied my daughter's accusations, yet we thoroughly believe her. that's why we called the athorities; that's why we're all going to therapy together.
can i somehow help him, too? can i help him without betraying my child? my family? myself?

again: i remain "conflicted"

Sure you can do what you can and still protect your child. She doesn't have to know everything, if you can say something like, he is my brother, he has a problem, I love HIM, not what he did. I want to make sure that he gets help. But she comes first.
