I'm wondering if anyone here has had a sister as their abuser? Though my sister wasn't my first abuser, she was my longest one and the one I remember most or should I say "never forgot". When I talk about my sister abusing me to people in the mental health system, I get a confusing response. Their response is "we don't usually have a sister who has been the abuser". What is that suppose to mean? Is it suppose to mean because it was my sister and that I'm a girl that it wasn't as serious? The fact that it was my sister has devastated me for most of my life. I was molested by a male cousin and raped by a boyfriend and to me the fact that my own sister, a female, molested me has always tormented me. I never forgot what she did. I felt so much shame because my sister did it. The things she did to me were horrible and were sexual acts. Just because it was another female that did them, doesn't lessen the severity of the act. Why do I feel more like a freak when I talk to the people who are suppose to be helping me with this stuff? Has anyone experienced the same kind of response from people? Females can molest their own too.
