    Thankyou both for replying. After struggling with alcohol for about 10-12 years, I ended up in hospital, not long after came the first suicide attempt. I blurted out about him to my mum & dad, mum was upset, dad was quiet, that was roughly 15months ago. Dad still mentions him like normal, they've not seen him since, not through choice, just he had a fall out with my dad & decided to stay away. He doesn't even know I've told them, my dad told me not to tell anyone else, it's private, he says. My husband knows, he's been a rock. Although he's been great, he really doesn't understand. My

    Thankyou so much for that, cant believe how alike it all is, saying brother or his name has the same affect on me. I will share my story sometime. But thanks again Lisa

    Thankyou for your reply. Got so many things going through my mind right now, can barely make sense of it myself.

    Hi Bernadette, I'm new on this site & have come across some of what you wrote about you & your friend. I know it. Was a while ago, but I totally understand what you was feeling. The same thing happened with me after I told my best friend, I felt like I was grieving, still do. I felt stupid for telling her in the first place. I do hope you sorted thing out.

    Hi Avi, I'm so sorry for your feelings. I myself has been going through similar thing with family, having to stay quiet & smiling when the brother who done such horrible things visits my parents house. You may feel alone, you are not. Just keep going & get everything of your chest. In my thoughts

    I'm so nervous about coming on here, seeing it all in black & white. Can't believe it's still buried so deep after all these years. From age 9 to 16 I was sexually abused & raped by my brother, can't believe I've just wrote that. I've had a problem with drink, tried suicide twice, but with all that behind me, I thought I was coming to terms with it all, seems not.

    Am I doing it right?

    I'm not very computer savvy, don't know if I'm supposed to be righting a blog or if there is somewhere else I'm meant to be posting things. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon. If I'm doing wrong, can someone let me know please?
