When I was only 14yrs old, my brother came into the room I was in and had sex with me. I just laid there did not move. I just wanted it to end.I am suppose to be enjoying my teenager years, not dealing with things that adults go through. Why is this keep going on? My brother! My mother's son! I wanted to tell my mother could not tell her. Would she believe me? Can I get pregnant by my brother? I am still wondering to this day after my mother has since passed on..did she know?
Francine, how old was your brother? It may not be a comfort to hear, but it is not uncommon for brothers to pressure their sisters into having sex. For many reasons, the boys are experimenting, exploring, practicing. If he was a teenager when this happened, his hormones were likely to be running rampant. At the same time young girls are usually naive and unsure of what to do in such situations. Likely if you'd told your mum, she would have hit him over the ears and told him to go for a run, play sport and do something with his overactive libido..
I am in no way making light of your situation. You haven't given much information. How old are you now? How long has this been going on? Is he an adult?
You certainly need to address this situation especially if it's continuing. If this is in the past you could get counseling to discuss any issues you have as a result of the experience.
I think you cant forget it, find some way to forget it,(counselling maybe) bad experience for you, you could have gotten pregnant,(and the baby usualy have abnormalities, I hope you try to forget, and just think that your mom didnt know it, so that you may have peace of mind...
Ouch! It's bad enough to go through molestation, I feel for you...that must be horrible to live with.
...How would she have known? that is terrible but a mother will always protect her child so she couldn't have known..
Please do not discuss this on a public forum. It is not helpful to you. Go and see a professional therapist with experience in these matters and start therapy. Otherwise, it is quite likely that this trauma will affect you for the rest of your life.
how old are you? if this occurred sometime ago why are you still concerned with the pregnancy issue? Something tells me you need therapy and soon, I fear with your concerns you may be a possible victim to another person. ALSO, HOW OLD WAS YOUR BROTHER? HAS IT OCCURRED THAT HE MAY HAVE DONE THAT BECAUSE HE HIMSELF WAS SOMEONES VICTIM. You and your brother need counseling to mend yourselves and your relationship. I do family therapy but not this type..so I am sincere when I TELL YOU TO get help through your insurance or even your job, most have employee assistance programs and dont cost anything. SHOULD YOU, LIKE MANY NOT HAVE MENTAL HEALTH COVERAGE.
Francine, of course she didn't know. You just have to believe that. Sounds like you could write some valuable hubs on this and it might help you work some of it out. You need a lot more that we can't provide (in the way of counseling and such) but writing about it can be very cathartic.
And you can find friends here, too.
I totally agree with Sandy, writing it out is good a good thing to do, child sexual abuse so prevelant its disgusting, you can become strong and a help for others and that will help you also , good luck and I wish you love and hapiness always
It must of been very traumatic for you on many levels. It's good to see that you can open up about it now. Hope you heal in all aspects. Stay strong.
I can relate to your issue and I'm pretty sure that your mother didn't know. Your mother isn't to be blamed, for her lack of sight. Your brother on the other hand is a deviant, to do such a thing. It's even understandable, because I know the nature of man and woman, that his sexual drive has over-ridden his own conscience, and he his going to be a menace to society, if unreported.
You must not let this consume you, otherwise, your life won't be your own, because you'll have succumb to having no value or respect for yourself. You'll feel dirty, you'll feel violated and you would be correct, to an extent. But, you can't let it eat at you.
If it is possible, bring it out into the open- by making it public knowledge, if the law applies, then let him serve his time. So, you can get justice and be able to move on. If the law doesn't apply anymore(depending on states laws), then I would suggest you identify with a solid purpose for which you can whole-heartedly endorse and push forward.
Please do not dwell, because it will only damage you.
wow, i couldn't have said it better myself.
I am sorry you are in pain and distressed and my heart goes out to you. Find a professional you can trust and get this difficult experience dealt with. Heal.
I know of many who have had bad experiences in life, healed and went on to be powerful forces helping others going through the same thing. Take care of yourself, Holly
How long ago did this happen? Have you confronted your brother about it since?
When I was in first grade my sister started having sex with me. It wasn't a force thing. In her mind she was helping me. It was more of a seduction ritual. She was only 3 years older than me so I'm nott sure where she became so experienced. Years later, as adults, in my 40s, we tried to discuss it. It did not go over well. She feels so guilty she can not talk about it. Several years would pass before we could talk about anything. We are just now starting a friendship, long distance, and mostly texting. It feels good to see it has finally passed and we can get on with life. It really messed me up emotionally. And it took years for me to understand. It will take some time to heal yourself mentally but let yourself feel something, just not blame. It is a f'ed up world and it will destroy us or make us stronger. I applaud your bravery, as I've never written about my experience and how it trashed my life. Best of luck.
This is a terrible and very confusing thing to have happen to anyone! My sympathies are with you hun! I agree with a lot that has been said already so will not repeat, I just wanted you to know that you are not alone, this has happened to other people too. A friend of mine had it happen with both her brother and her father! Its enough to make a person sick with sorrow. I hope you find this site a good one for writing and getting some of this out of your system.
I feel the utmost sympathy towards you, really I do, it's a terrible predicament. But is Hubpages really the place to talk about it?
Well I was a fan of this woman, until hubber Susana S, kindly sent me an e-mail telling me about it.
I just unfanned this woman ,and send an e-mail to sonni2006, who's a fan as well.
I want to apologize to marinealways for some rude words I said to him on that hub
I was only defending this woman, because I'm fed up with people here, attacking indians with sexy women hubs.
But of course, I'm not for this kind of thing.
Anyway, maybe she's in need of money, so I'm not going to judge.
some people have terrible lives ,and they can't do anything about it.
So who are we to judge ?
Of course she shouldn't have come here to HP ,to sell the girls.
I do not think so, reading this thread it has brought up an issue concerning another hubber and their hub. I would like to think that it is not what it appears on the surface
I do wonder if the Mods are going to pick up this thread and take a look, maybe contact the hubber and inquire about her reason for being here. I think taking the hub on its own I would not flag it or anything like that but taken with the content of this forum it is not a pretty picture being painted
Of course not !!
I refer to radhabarwali
Megs78 was talking about her and I replied.
the hub itself is inappropriate for several reasons:
these are children whose stats are out there for anyone to see and they are being sexualized.
upon a second look, this woman could be an innocent victim in all of this. she could have an angry ex who hates her for having custody of the girls and so he is doing this to discredit her.
I felt the same, and had posted my opinion few posts back.
I agree I just posted a comment on the hub, just one track mindedly thinking, she's a sicko but I know that some people would go as far as posting something like that to make another person look bad! I am hoping it's more a revenge thing or a custody thing like you said and no a they're for sale thing or a really bad,piss poor joke
It should be taken down nonetheless
When I first read the hub, didn't find anything wrong with it.
Maybe the measure stuff was tricky, but didn't look at it as I'm not used to feet & inches.
Anyway, what cosette says can be true
OK I had to check it out. That should be taken down. All of it. I can't believe it's still up.
This whole thread is completely misplaced.
If it is true what this woman says, then she should seek help from a professional therapist, with experience in treating incest victims, and not discuss this on a public forum.
This is not helpful to her, and despite the best of intentions from everyone here, saying "I feel for you", or voicing other words of comfort does not help her at all. Nobody who is commenting here is a therapist and therefore you are not in a position to help. Even if you are a therapist this medium is not appropriate.
The best help we can offer is to suggest that she seeeks professional help. Period.
Did I say anything resembling advice? No.
Dude none of us are trying to help her in an actual way, because most of us aren't equipped with psychology or psychiatry.
I don't mean to speak for everyone here BUT just saying some things to maybe help make her feel not so shit or alone. Some people have said they went through something similar and wanted to let her know how they dealt with it.
I even suggested she see a professional. Who are you to judge that a kind word from some strangers isn't helpful? Yes the best help is that of a professional but being empathetic does her no harm. Perhaps she chose to discuss it here, simply to feel some emotion from the world and to get pushed into seeing someone.
Cut us some slack- no one here is trying to save the world, just letting her know we are aware of her post and took some time to reply with compassion.
It's funny that, No offence BUT you come on here to tell us we are of no help despite our intentions but you don't even realise she hasn't been discussing it- we have! She's not replied at all and a number of people have said to her she needs to see a therapist.
36/F/Bombay beer bar LADY waiter. I have three beautiful daughters age 18,16 & 13.
Sex & Money
So she knows what she's doing
Oh hey, trying to think of something really sensational just so I can keep up with these threads, but, no. Shall go stand in the rain until I can contribute something equally as wonderful! What a grand new road we are on here at HP!
Now that's something that was necessary and good to hear.
Thread back on topic now. Thanks weblog!
Incest issues bring to my mind- a broken family, abusive family members, irresponsible parents- an unhealthy family environment. Whichever you belong, I guess you need counseling by experts. The fact that you can courageously bring this up in public is one step ahead in your quest for justice. At 14 years of age, a great number of your peers had successfully parried off their attackers. God bless you.
