YOU ARE THE VICTIM of SEXUAL ABUSE and so NOT TO BE BLAMED
Dr. Shirley Schaye Says...
I am so...ooo very, very sorry to hear about what happened between you and your brother. First, please let me say that YOU ARE NOT TO BLAME. You were only 10 years old. There is a big developmental difference between a 10 year old and a 14 year old. For one, not to even mention ego development but at 14 one has reached puberty. Usually at 10, one has not.
Let me also say this. I have done a lot of work on SEXUAL ABUSE --- published, speaking engagements, etc. See here. I am only saying this because I know a lot about the sexually abused victim. It would help you a great deal if you sought out a properly trained therapist to deal with all the guilt, fear and damage that your brother has created for you. If you give me your city, state and zip code I will be happy to help you find someone.
