Your brother is probably molesting others...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Amanda, I applaud your philosophy in life and in dealing with obstacles, but you don't know how what happened to you will affect you as you get older. You don't know what it will do to your ability to be intimate. You don't know what you don't know. Your brother is a sex offender. It is highly unlikely that he molested only you. It is highly likely that he has and will continue to molest other girls. Having a girlfriend does not, I repeat, does not prevent him from his sexual urges of wanting a young girl who can't protect or defend herself. The fact that he was abused when he was younger may explain what he has done to you (and probably others), but it does not excuse it. He knew what he was doing was wrong, yet he did it anyway. If you do not disclose what he did, he will not be stopped.

Amanda, as you move through your stages of life, you may well find that counselling will become necessary. Don't deny yourself that counselling if it becomes necessary. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

I really admire your courage
by: Anonymous

I really admire your courage. Im sure its painful but please call the cops. Please sue him. When I read this I was so mad at him for doing this to you. I hope all bad things happen to this man. He admitted it, you can take him to court. Tape record him, do anything. He belongs in a jail locked up for the rest of his life..Im sure it hasnt stopped with you. He might be now putting drugs in peoples drinks. Hire a private investigator to follow him around. He is dangerous to society. I really admire your courage. You are the most courageous woman I ever heard of, and your survival skills are amazing.

chidl molesters stay hidden until they are exposed
by: maurice

Amanda K1 oh you are one very special child of God child of the universe. Your Brother certainly molested you, he knew what he was doing, using and abusing his own sister in secret. Your parents did'nt seem to be aware of it. great he gave you peace of mind a 15. Then it makes me wonder did he continue with your new found friends. I accept Darlene's knowledge and professional understanding that he could be still molesting. He remains hidden untill you or one of the innocent children/teenagers he preys on on. Darlene Comment is solid words of love, care, genuine concern for you as you move on in your own life. Heed her words, make them real for you, act on them, don't sit around get off your bottom and find a counsellor. It is important you believe in yourself. your giftedness, build up your own self awareness, respect, and esteem. Look in the Mirror and truly admire the me you see smiling back at you. Make real your physical beauty that is deep within you to let out. I am beautiful, I am wonderful, I am special, I am going to love me from this day on. Think positive, act positive, be positive, Love and respect your own body and self before you begin to let others love and respect it. Be safe, be sure.

Your brother needs help
by: Mike

What your brother did to you is sick and illegal. Hopefully he is finished with YOU, but people like him very rarely abuse only 1 person. If you haven't reported him yet, you need to do it now to protect other innocent children, and to get him the help he needs. People like him almost always know what they do is wrong, but in most cases, they have an urge so strong they can't stop themselves. They will never stop until they get professional help.

Telling your story publicly is a good start to getting on with your life, but even if you feel you are ready to move on, counseling will help you with your future.
