You WERE abused. Witnessing spousal abuse is a form of emotional abuse. I commend and applaud your mother's courage to get herself and you children out of that abusive environment. The link I've included under witnessing shows that what happened with your brother is not unusual, especially under the section titled Impact of Witnessing Spousal Violence. You said you developed anger management issues (temper), but that you've been working on that: I commend and applaud YOU too, Lisa, for recognizing the destructive force of a temper and doing something about it. Not only will you benefit from "calming down", but most importantly, your children will benefit beyond what one can even imagine. You're teaching them something extraordinarily valuable when you calm yourself. Keep up the great work! As for your brother, he has to be ready to help himself before anyone can help him. When he's ready, you'll be there for him, I'm sure. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
