    Hi everyone. It's a looong time since i logged in and posted something. I'm not sure who to turn to, but i just reported a sibling for elder abuse. Has anyone ever reported abuse? any advice? (MODs feel free to move to the appropriate forum)

    Hi there, you posted in the right forum don't worry.
    Yes. I have reported abuse. I reported molestation and rape in 2011, it happened in 2002 so the case was turned down due to a lack of evidence, it was never brought to court. But I have healed well from that. The worst part for me was the not knowing what was going on with the case from 2011-2013 when they told me it had been turned down. The best advice I can give you is get counselling to raise your self esteem and confidence. If you feel you need meds see your doc, contact your local rape crisis centre. I am sorry you had to go through this horror, its unspeakable. But we are here for you and care :)
    Well done for reporting it, I am so proud when I see someone has reported abuse, it's not the silent crime it once was.
