    I saw my abusers dad in the supermarket yesterday and walked right past him. I realised when he stood up who he was. I was so scared. This is the father of the guy who abused me. This is the guy who got a church to lie for his son because he has power in the community. This is the guy who’s a massive voice in education in the United Kingdom, and some how got his abusive son a job in a school as a teacher. This is the guy who got his abusive son a radio show. This guy knows his son has abused several girls. This guy is the reason I won’t get justice.

    So much stuff!!!

    I have been having a really hard time and it’s been a reallly long year for my family.
    About me I have Fibro, RA, IC/BPS, sciatica AS, DDD, SpinalFusion spinalstenosis etc..

    I have my oldest brother who had a stroke this year. We have always spoken and never had and any issues ( unlike my other siblings that’s another post).

    When I was younger my brother more than once sexually assaulted me.
    I don’t know if it actually considered that
    I was sexually assaulted by my father when I was a child and raped at 15 by an older man.

    My brother who is 20 years older than me tried to kiss me on more than one occasion this was when I was in elementary school. He I found out a few years ago was also along with my brothers and my sister were sexually assaulted by my father as well.

    So the situation is idkw but after he had his stroke I just couldn’t speak to him.
    I did only speak to him because of my mother. I did tell my mother when I was younger and I can only say she made excuses for him and begged me not to not talk to him.

    I love my mother very much and we have a very good relationship except for this issue. So I haven’t spoken to him since his stroke and I feel extremely guilty for it.
    He has been trying to get in contact with me but I have thwarted contact.

    My husband knows and of course he says I should not feel guilty and doesn’t understand why I had been talking to him all these years.
    I don’t know if I should say something to my mom who is 85. I don’t think it would do anything but upset her or cause and arguement. Or bother saying anything to my brother. Which idkw I feel bad saying anything which doesn’t make sense.
    I know I should have gone to therapy years ago but does anyone have any suggestions how I should proceed in the interim ?

    Why do abusers and enablers have so much power?

    I’ve been feeling really lonely recently. Like nobody cares. I’ve been getting sent abuse by my abuser and his dad. I’m told to sit back and let it happen. Life isn’t fair for victims
