Please take your own advice. Get some help for yourself. There is help for you out there, but you must reach out for it. You are too precious not to. And just for the record, your dad is on his own with his problems. YOU cannot help him with his problems. You must help yourself with YOURS. I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. 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. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

A new year, with resolutions for a new beginning
by: maurice

Kathrine N, I love me could be your resolution only if you want it to be for the beginning of 2010. Just that until you begin to make a real sense of what Darlene wrote to you in her comment. She knows best, she's come from being a vctim of abuse to be vitorious over it. She know, she believes there is life after abuse just exactly what she is saying to you in her comment. Your older brother needs a good kicking for what he did to you. Using you as a sibling to be sexually satisfying his own gratifications. You were the innocent one, you were the younger one, you were the vunerable siater left alone with him. HE WAS WRONG. It was not my fault. You are slowly accepting that more aware that you need to talk about it to someone. Find a counsellor/therapist for professional help in your healing. Hi having a friend or two whom you trust with your life is a blessing in your life. Let them walk with you, talk with you, support you in seeking the help that will make you think positive, act positive and be positive about ourself each day you wake up. Have a healthy mind in a healthy body, become active and life in team sports, with groups of like -minded interests as you. It is a huge help to be involved with others naturally. letting go comes easier because you stop dwelling on what happened you. So with the professional help and being anturally involved with others in your work place, and with others you'll be fine. Live well, Laugh alot, Love much, beginning with yourself in front of the mirror. I can, I will, I must, because I'M WORTH IT> I'M SPECIAL AND I LOVE ME. A good beginning for the NEW YEAR will put you on the road to real happiness Kathrine N

You are perfect just the way you are
by: Anonymous

I'm so sorry you went through that. I think its terrible when its within the family and especially sexual abuse. Although I grew up in a physically abuse and verbal abusive home by my brother, my father neglected us and we didn't see our mother that often. The words "I love you" were foreign in my family, and hugs never occurred. I felt awkward if I had friends that hugged everyone because I wasn't used to it. Even when I started dating I almost forced myself to get used to saying "I love you" and hugging because they were "normal." The only time I remember my dad saying "I love you" was on the day of my wedding, and even then he brushed it off. I have recently become close to my aunt and spend quite a bit of time with her and her family. Through them I am learning to open up and accept that plain-old hugging is normal and "I love you" is not taboo- of course this is only if the intentions are inocent and as a way to show mutual appreciation and love. You are a strong woman to survive through all of your ordeal. You are a miracle no matter what anyone else says!
