I was 12, my stepfather moved his 22-year-old son to live with us. It didn't
take long for him [my stepbrother] to start sneaking into my bedroom at night.
He abused me in ways I won't go into. No matter how hard I fought back, he just
got worse. I had the brilliant idea of telling my stepfather, who casually said
"my son could never do that", and then proceeded to beat the hell out
was in the 70's, and my mother sat and watched.
am 43 now, and all of this has indeed snowballed. I am seeing a psychiatrist
for all of my problems, and [taking] Effexor xr 300 mg per day and Seroquel 350
mg per day.
My point is, if you are a male and had this happen to you, don't wait. Get outside help as soon as possible. I thought I was tough enough to deal with my own problems. Look at me now.
