You are nowhere near over it. None of what happened was your fault. Fault is squarely on the shoulders of your offenders. As I read your story I kept asking myself, where were her parents? How could they not see the signs of abuse? They had to have suspected something was wrong, so why didn't they protect their daughter. Please be honest about what's happened to you. Tell everything, and then seek out some form of counseling to help you deal with the repercussions. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Dear Krissie, you must understand that you did not in any way cause or deserve what happened to you. What your brother and his friends did to you should never be done to anyone, and is almost never done if there is good parental supervision.

You think that you are over it, but you will carry affects from the abuse all your life. It will be better if you talk about it with grown-ups who are trained to help. Usually, it is a school counselor, but it could be someone on a help-line.

I pray for you and wish that I could comfort you. I hope you write again to tell us that you are talking to someone helpful.

God Bless.

What a brave girl/teenager YOU are: Always believe in yourself
by: maurice

Krissie I believe you are very gifted: You are highly intelligent: You are special: Great you found Darlene's site: It took alot of courage to tell and write your story which means you know your brother and his friends abused you: treated you unfairly and certainly took away your self worth and dignity: You are safe now: stay safe and always have real friends around you: to love and protect you from little beasts like your brother and his friends: Yes, I would wonder where was your mother during that time when all the abuse was happening to you?? She must have noticed you had bruises: Also the fact you could not or did not tell on your brother: It was a fearful and traumatic time for you: Krissie it is past now: Darlene sure knows best, I ask you to heed her encourageing words to you: Act on them: Make good friends: I hope and pray too you will speak to a professional counsellor: I am certain why Darlene suggests counselling is because she knows it will help: The person will see things differently: the first thing you need to truly accept Krissie is that the abuse was not your fault: I was not to blame: What you must do is break the silence : you need to talk to someone who can handle the information without getting emotionally involved: I will: I can: I must because I am WORTH it

God Bless You

Dear Krissie,
I truly pray that you get better and that God will keep you safe. I read this story and kept wondering to myself,"Is she going to forgive her brother at some point?" I know it's a hard decision but you have to remember he is your brother and what he did to you was wrong.. horrible in every way, but he is still your blood. I feel bad and I wish some people would just open their eyes to reality! That their lives may be good but there are other people out in the world that need help like you and many others! Whenever I talk to one of my friends and they say they can't tell others about what's going on at home it hurts me. They need to speak up but their afraid that no one will believe them or they will put that person into trouble. Your story touched me and I wish you the best in life. That God will protect you from people like your brother and his friends. A saying my dad always told me was,"Keep on praying and you will soon receive!"

God Bless Your Soul And Heart For Sharing Your Story! Stay Strong!

Poor you. Hopefully you will heal.

But I have a comment about when you say your brother is 19 when your are 14 at the start (5 year difference) but at the end you claim you were 12 when he was 15 (3 year difference).

That is horrible
by: Anonymous

I don't know you, I don't know your family, but I do know the situation on a certain level. Too many of us are abused by our older, stronger siblings. What started out as a 'game' could turn into something brutal and inhumane.
What they did to you is horrible, absolutely gut wrenchingly horrible. Right now, I'm furious that your brother could ever let that happen to you. Brothers are supposed to protect their little sisters from people like his friends.
What they did to your unborn baby is abominable. It was a crueler version of abortion. Your brother is a disgusting person, and he is pretty much a scum bag for ever doing this to you.
I hope you get over the trauma, even though it is difficult. Just try really hard, and you'll get through it. Don't give up, it would mean that your brother got away with it. Don't let that happen, for your own sake and for many other girls like you, strong but holding the world atop their shoulders. You can only carry so much; leg go some of it, and tell someone!
