I Was Raped By My Older Brother

It happened when I was in grade 3 and grade four.. I was 7 and 8 years when my older brother started to rape me. Now, I am 20 years old and I will be turning 21, In January 2011. It was a very long time ago but still I always remember those horrible days. I wish to have an AMNESIA just to forget everything that had happened to me when I was young. My brother is the second child of my parents and he is 7 years older than me. As far as I can remember the first time he touched me was when just only me and him in our home , I don't know where are all the people in the house went that time. My family is not rich so me and my siblings are just sharing in one room because we have a very small house. I was sleeping that time and he suddenly get on top of me, he covered my mouth pulled my panty down and raped me (at that time I didn't really know what he was doing to me as a young girl i thought it was just a kind of game) so I didn't shout at first when he was covering my mouth with his hand. I can't do anything because he was so strong .. I just screamed when he gets inside of me because I was really hurt that time.

After, he raped me he just left me in the bed and I saw my panty was on blood and the bed-sheet too has bloods on it. I remember my brother took the bed-sheet and my panty outside to wash them he even told me before he left, "Change your clothes and your panty". I didn't really know that time if my brother did to me was bad or not.. so I didn't tell my parents about it. Second time, when I was sleeping again.. It was very dark in our room. I was so sleepy that I didn't notice that he was already inside of me. I was so helpless . That time, there were my other siblings sleeping in our room too but I don't know if they noticed what my older brother was doing to me but i think they didn't because all these years I have been carrying this burden all by myself. And third, was when I was sleeping again in a couch on our living room... I was so helpless that I cannot fight him back. That third time, I have already realized that it was all wrong! I got scared of him , so scared of him that i wished he wasn't my brother and wished I could kill him, punch him and whatever that would hurt him so badly.

Later that day, He was teasing me and also commanding me to do somethings in the house. He likes to command always as if he was a boss with a big voice and i got mad because I was already so sick of him. I said, do it again or else I will really report you to mom and dad for raping me.I gave him a really bad look like i would kill him. He didn't say anything and he was so quiet after I said those things to him. We never get along very well and I started hating him after he did it to me. I know, he was afraid that i will tell our my parents about what he did to me.

When I turned 10 years old my eldest sister told me to go and study with her in my Auntie's place so that accompany her there. many miles away from our home. I took the opportunity to stay away with my pervert brother. In my auntie's place.. I feel like I was being saved from hell I forgot a bit on what happened to me way back in our own house because I didn't see my brother's disgusting face. But I only studied there for one year. I was in grade five when I studied in my Auntie's place. After one year I went back to our home again, I am kinda thankful because my older brother moved to a city where he study college.

I really tried to tell it to my mom but she was too busy and my dad too . I rarely see them in our house during those days. And also, I know that if I will tell it to my parents they will be shocked. I don't know what will be their reaction. Would they send my brother to the prison? I know they won't because they don't want to ruin his future and ruin our family. And also, I got so afraid. What if I told them then, I will be the talked of the town? People will judge my family, and me. I was so scared that time that I prefer to just SHUT UP and tried to live a normal life like many other girls.

I been living these past many years carrying this big secret and until i found this website. I have read some stories almost the same as mine.. and got the courage to post my story here. I feel a bit okay because I am not the only one in this world who had a bad experience in life a disgusting experience that brothers raped their sisters.

I want to get some advices to all people who will read this post of mine. what will I do? I can't really forget it. I don't hate my brother.. he is still my brother no matter what but I really don't like him, My respect of him has gone. Every time we see each other nowadays. I always give him the unpleasant look. I hate talking to him too. He has his own family now, one daughter and two son's. But still when i remember my past I get so sad. I feel bad . That experienced made me not to trust anybody. That's why when i reached high school.. i only have few friends and I don't have that too much confidence of myself. I remember when i was in high school i tried to commit a suicide.. because of what happened to me. I feel that time that my life is worthless.. I don't even have the guts to be with male friends.. I like to make friends with girls only. though, I had few male friends in high school but not really as close like my girl friends.

The worst part of this story is.. Nowadays, There's someone whom I have meet online.. I think he is special to me. I gave him the wrong detail about my rape story because I got afraid to tell him the truth too. Now, we like each other more.. we been chatting for more than four months now, and he would come here next year to see me personally. I am so worried to tell him the truth. He doesn't like LIARS. He really hates liars... so i lied to him he would hate me and I am so afraid that what if i would lose him if i will tell him the truth? the real truth? please tell me what to do.

hey I know how it feels 2 b raped cause I got raped 16 times and I have had 1 child but I was raped by my step father and my 3 step brothers 16 times and I felt the same way

Dear Miley.
don't ,,, don't ,,, don't tell him any about your past and it's not a mater of liars . that's your past (over) ... family.....but your boyfriend can judge on you from the time you and him knew each others ... About your brother he did fell guilty that he did wrong with his beautiful sister ... From now go forward standup again and forget all bad things in your past tray to leave and mange your present life and look for you future .

I'm so sorry that happened to you.

I wish I was your brother.

That's sick ^

**** u if that means what I think ur sayin

oh this is forasdfasdgasdg the one above

I wish these things would never happen to people. its not fair. I understand you, also sorry to hear what happened to you. its taken me over 10 years to tell my mom what happened. but it was too late, she blames me. I'm sick of her and that ba**** brother. you should maybe tell your mom or the authority before it's too late, now I'm in my 20's and I have really no support, my mom thinks I'm crazy and I'm making things up. she's on his side. I just wanted to die. but, he will win and get away with everything, if I did pass away... I don't think he regrets what he did. He's just going to regret being caught. I wanted to tell the police. but my mom said she will never forgive me, and I should be ashamed of what I'm saying. I've been ashamed of what happened to me 10 years ago and have lived in silence. she also said it will ruin all of my families lives. I just wanted him to go jail or go to hell and get what he deserves. if he started doing those disgusting things to me from the age of when I was 8 till I was 13 then he should be in prison. he never did regret any of his action he never did stop...

every time after he did those things to me I wished that it wouldn't happen ever again, and maybe he would just stop cause he knows its wrong to do, but then he would start messing about with me again and I still kept thinking maybe he'll stop and I tried to hint to him that god knows everything that is happening, I became a little religious after he started raping me, religion was like the only thing I could turn to other than my parents... and also I thought if he does attack me again I will scream so everybody in the house can hear and that would make him stop, but he still kept doing these sick things to me every time. and I couldn't ever scream, I felt paralyzed and always in shock and scared every time... I did try and move away but he is older and bigger than me and he'd grabbed me if I started moving away. I feel so upset and hate that I have family like this, I wish they weren't even related to me

I recently met someone. I did lie to him that someone else raped me other than my brother cause I felt ashamed of saying that a***ole did, when he asked me who did this. maybe tell him the truth, a lot of people are really understanding, he may care for you more cause he has a slight different opinion to you cause remember its not your fault. that pig did this to you, and left you in this situation, your brother made you feel bad... also maybe you should tell that guy earlier before its too late, hope everything really goes well for you, and you find peace and happiness. good luck to you, forget about the bad things that happened, and the bad people, put it in a little box and just push it aside, and never open it again, it scarred me but I keep pushing it away from my thoughts, and never wanting to remember it, and just enjoy yourself from now on, think about your future only... I've done that, I'm a lot happier too. I hope this helps you...

You need to tell your parents and get some help for your own sanity


It's Really Unfair What Some People Do To Others & I Know Exactly How U Feel My Brother Walked In On My 28 Ye Old Cousin Raping Me & Instead Of Stopping It He Started Threatening Me That He Was Going To Tell My Parents & Tell Them That I Was Enjoying It & Both Him & My Cousin Raped Me Almost Every Day For About 3 Yes. & I'm 35 Now & It Still Bothers Me To This Day.

Poor girl. Tell someone. I know you're scared please tell your parents or a friend.

I know you are scared but you have to tell him the truth you don't want to be carrying this big lie for another year just tell him the truth and tell him that you were afraid he might judge you or leave you and you were speechless at the moment and was trying not to remember a memory from the pass and lied to you because it was a distraction if he leaves you then there are other guys out there looking for a strong woman like you trust me I wish you the best and hope you live a great life

I think you're right TheUnforgettable

My story is very much like yours miley06. but i dont really know if this is getting raped, because i did whatever he told me to do and the horrible thing about it is i liked it.

I was about 9 years old and my brother was about 13 when he first started raping me. and at that time my parents were divorced and my mom got remaried.

On that day my mom was still asleep because she worked the midnight shift and my my stepdad was at the gym and my brother and i were in the basement watching tv. after about an hour or so of watching tv my brother started coming over to me and pulled out his.... well you know...and told me come over and take a feel and like an idiot i did. then he started to undress me and told me "this is our little secret and if you tell mom your dead, so i said ok and sat there so he could do whatever to me and he did this every chance he got. i did say no to a few things like when he told me to give him a blow job and when he told me to go get in his bed. and my mother later divorced her second husband.

It lasted for two years untill i told my mom when my brother wasn't there.

Now i am to scared to let any guy in the house. i refuse to let my mother even date again because im so scared. plus im even having nightmares about it and im 14 years old!! im in councling now but its not helping.

please tell me what to do!!! :(

I'm so sorry you went through all that.

You should tell, if only because he might hurt any of your other sisters or some other girls :(

I'm almost positive that he did it to another of your sisters while you were gone that year...

Home should be a place where you are safe, not your own personal hell! Even if you don't tell your parents, tell someone you trust!

Get some sort of help for yourself.

I'm so sorry for what happend to you :/ ! It hurts and it is understandable why you didn't tell, your parents wouldn't have called the police, but turn there backs on him, your brother was cruel to do that to you, and i really feel for you to go through this, you are very courageous. Maybe therapy might help, you may not beable to forget, but you can move on, this relationship your in now sounds great grab it with two hands and no turning back. I understand that you are scared, scared to trust another man again, and scared that you will think of the rape when you make love... but not every man is like that. Do not let you brother win, do not let him make you feel so low ! Move on...

Tell this man when you meet him what really happend if you want to... he won't hate you because what you went through, is very hard to share. You sit down and have fun with him... Go Girl ! You are brave and courageous strong and powerful !! Get in there... It's time to move on ! xxx

I no how it feels so go through so much, you can't share anything... read my blog

Good Luck... xxxx
