How Domestic Violence Affected My Life.

Fourteen years ago, my brother went to jail for the murder of my mother. In fact, He had probably planned the murder and his lover did the act. His lover went to jail for the murder and he got out on lack of evidence.


The murder was brutal. My to-be-husband (at that time) helped me clean up the house after it happened. I did not live there. It was horrific. My mother and brother were both kind of crazy. He is obviously a certifiable psychopath.

I think part of me staying with myhusband all these years is due to the fact that I was desperately looking for some kind of normalcy. Now I just have to face my demons and move on with my life.

I forgive my brother. I did so on his death bed in 2000. He died of AIDS.

He never admitted to it.

I a so sorry that you lost your brother.

I a so sorry that you lost your brother.

W-O-W! I won't bore you with the "I'm so sorry" bs, but damn, what an experience!<br />

Good to hear you have picked up the pieces and moved on. It's really a shame that people need to have closure about things, but I guess that is what makes us human at the end of the day. I think you'll ultimately find the closure within yourself Jroth and I hope that it comes soon :)<br />

You do sound like a remarkable woman and it's too bad that things didn't work out with your hubby. Perhaps you will find what you are searching for in the near term :) Best of luck on your journey!

Thank you for all of your input. I have not been using this website but I am now working on my profile some. I am also posting new work I've written regarding my life as a young person.

This is sad/crazy... you are SOO strong and brave...and it takes guts to share something like that with people... i admire you

Wow, I'm so sorry that you had to go through something like that. No one should ever have to go through such a tragic experiance. I'm sure you still have night mares because of it. I know that I would. If you ever need someone to talk to, you can talk to me. I'm a great listner. Once again I'm express my deppest sympathy for you and the rest of you family.

You must be a very strong person to have forgiven your brother, I admire you greatly.
