Your uncle may well have also been molested by your grandfather. That's not an excuse for what he did, but a possible explanation. Sounds as though there was some serious problems in your family. What's important to understand is that none of what happened was your fault, and it wasn't your sister's fault either. You were both children, vulnerable children. And the fact that you didn't believe your sister is something that you must stop blaming yourself for. You are applying more mature values to what you did and did not do as a little child. I understand why you're doing that, but you need to stop doing it. Treat yourself better than that. Consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse and the repercussions. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. And you need to disclose the abuse.
