I've just joined and posted a reply under Bullying. I want to start this thread on Sibling abuse and see what happens. I've been a victim of sibling abuse all my life and it's my worst problem and I believe the source of most of my anxiety. I have a great deal of anger at my parents and my extended family for not standing up for me and since my brother and I have been adults I have a great deal of rage towards him because he has continued the abuse even at a distance. Although I have severed the relationship he continues to abuse through put-downs and gossip about me. This is an isolated struggle because therapists and just people in general don't seem to acknowledge the power that this can have. I'll be interested to see if others have this same issue of trauma through sibling abuse.
