My Brother - May 27th 2011, 06:32 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of peer pressure or bullying, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

It is extremely hard for me to write this without curses all over the page. My brother got home less than thirty minutes ago and he's already under my skin and making me wish I never had to see him or hear of him again. I've spent so many months and so much time trying to get over the damage he's done to me my entire life and he comes home and I can't say a word without him belittling me and making me feel completely worthless.

I'm not looking for advice, I'm just looking for a place to vent because he gets into every bit of my life and tears it to shreds. I'm so sick of people telling me they understand when they don't, they don't deal with this and have no place to go. I'm tired of having to hide in my room to temporarily escape his abuse until he just comes in and starts doing it again because I'm hiding out. I can't go live on my own, I'm a college student and even though college isn't ideal for me, it is sooo much better than being here, I'd take being alone there over being here any day. I don't know how I'm going to make it until the end of August in this house.

Actually, you'd be surprised. I understand quite well, I had major issues with my oldest brother. Hell, I may have permanent rib damage because of his abuse, I STILL feel like they're bruised even when nothing has hit them, by a slight touch. But, point is, I know how you must feel.

Honestly, the best way to stay away from it is, just as you said, be out of the house as much as possible, hide out, etc. since I'm going to assume you've gone to an adult about this? if not, going to an adult could help immensely.

Only way I got out of it, really, was when my brother moved out. I hate to sound discouraging, but just keep in mind, it WILL get better one day. My brother is still quite cruel to me when he comes over, but I just ignore him, and remember that he's living in a gross place with his lazy, useless wife, and think of it as Karma.

Elizabeth my dear, I don't know if you still have my number, but if you do, you're free to call me any time to vent to me.

I know your brother can be a complete jerk (and worse), but every day you get by and past it is another day closer to going back to school and away from him. Stay strong and just do what you can to avoid him whenever possible. <3
