What can I do to get over sex abuse?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Domestic Violence Accounts : One Thread

I have spent years struggling with my brother's sexual abuse of me and my entire family, being my parents and two other brothers (I have 3 older brothers) refuse to help me and even believe me. In fact, they all don't want this to be "spoken" about so they have all formed and alliance of sorts and have branded me the "black sheep" that's doing and saying all of this for attention.

Well, needless to say, it hurts very much. I recognize that I need to move on in my life with out my family...I just don't know how to productively. I don't want to drown my sorrows in alcohol or other bad behavior...I need help and support...I need a new family...some friends in Atlanta, where I have relocated from Chicago...all to deal with this...it's so hard...I am so lost and in a tremendous amount of pain.
