It is good to hear that your brother is now in jail for his crimes. That's where he should be, away from everyone so he can't hurt the defenseless.

As for the shame you still experience, it's time to give that wings so that it can fly away. You bear no shame or blame in what your brother and his vile friends did to you. Sex feels good, that's a fact. And another fact is that it is not uncommon for someone who is sexually abused to reach an orgasm, male OR female. Your body simply responded to physical and sexual stimulation. It doesn't mean that you weren't abused. Or that you have any shame to carry. All the shame and blame lies squarely on the shoulders of the abusers. Period.

It does appear that you have brought purpose to your life, rescuing children and animals. That's always a very good thing.

It's also a very good thing to have an emotional support. Animals can be amazing in that way. I'm aware of dogs, horses, even pigs being employed in this way, but I must say, I'm surprised and skeptical you can bring a tiger around with you. Rescued, tame or otherwise. And that mothers would openly bring their children around such an animal, not to mention batting away the paws of such an animal with their children right there. You didn't explain how this could be. And though this aspect of your story does stretch the boundaries of belief, I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt only because your story does reflect that PTSD is very much an effect of child abuse. It is for this reason that I didn't delete your story outright.

I send you love, light and healing energy, Manodora. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
