    Over this past week my mother made some confessions to me. Including that I was molested by a neighbours son when i was 4, and that my father possibly abused me. She knows he hit my brother, who was 2 years younger and was 4 when my dad died. Not sure how I feel about all this information yet...not sure how to process it...

    It's a obvious shock to you. It will take some time to process all this and sort your thoughts and feelings out.

    As part of trying to "Deal with our issues".....my mother and I have a lot of communication problems and other issues, and she decided to bare all so to speak, disillusion me about my dad, who I've always felt closer to even tho he died when I was 6.

    you say that your father "possibly" abused you. this doesn't sound so certain. are you sure that even happened. maybe he didn't do anything to you. hang in there sometimes these type of comments are hurtful, but the good news is these things aren't happening anymore. it's going to take time to get through this. please continue to share and we will support you the best we can. please take care and stay safe.

    yes, my mother is not sure if my father abused me, but she is sure about me being molested by the neighbours son. he admitted it, but nothing was ever done about it.

    that sucks about the neighbor. have you ever tried to press charges against him, or might the law say it's been too long? i was raped four times in my life, and not a single soul payed and sort of consequence. that honestly sucks you know, but i'm not around any of them anymore. i have talked about all these at some point and time, and honestly they just don't feel so prevalent anymore. they're there i won't deny that, but they just don't stand out like they use to anymore. this is one reason why i encourage to just give this some time. talk about it as you feel you need to. this is very helpful. please take care and stay safe.

    If you don't remember any of this, I personally would not open the can of worms...sometimes its better not to know the truth.

    it's been a few months now and I don't feel like this knowledge has changed anything about me, except maybe increase my resentment towards my mother a bit more, but that;s nothing new.
