To Teenage Girl:

I understand your fear. But this won't stop haunting you until you tell someone. If you really don't believe you can still go to your parents, try contacting one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. Talk to a school counselor as well. Someone who can point you to other resources. Just don't keep this inside any longer. Your parents may have suspected your brother did something to you because there may be a history or perhaps they are aware of something that you aren't; like perhaps he was molested as a young boy. But if you don't speak up, you won't get the help YOU need. And don't for one second blame yourself for not telling. Fear is the #1 reason abuse victims don't tell, and there doesn't have to be threats for a victim to stay quiet. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
