by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Your brother was likely molested himself, and then began molesting you. He quite likely acted out what had happened (or was still happening) to him. It doesn't excuse what he did to you; it offers an explanation, one that might help you to deal with the aftermath. I strongly recommend some form of counseling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of being sexually abused as a child. You had no power as a child. You CAN take your power back now that you're an adult. But that means getting help for yourself. It's one of the most loving things you can do for yourself. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
