I'm delighted that my site has helped you. And let me say that you are anything BUT a weakling, and the same goes for your brother. Your mother has serious problems that she takes out on the two of you. She may well have been abused herself as a child (not an excuse, but perhaps an explanation for her twisted behaviour and treatment of the two of you), and instead of choosing to do something different with her children, she gains control in her life by re-enacting what happened to her. Like I said, not an excuse, but rather, an explanation. Whatever you do, DO NOT believe any of the derogatory comments she makes about either of you. She is spewing lies. And while I commend and applaud that you are going to do more research about child abuse, I also say that you need to talk to someone about what's happening in your home: a trusted teacher, a school counselor, a church elder, or perhaps the parent(s) of a friend. Your brother and you do not deserve to be mistreated. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
