So I guess telling family members is all about timing, but man how do you know when the time is "right". It never seems right.

I don't know. I wish I had an answer. I have told one, and it was terribly difficult, but it has been a source of healing as well. In that case, the rare circumstances just presented themselves and I went for it.

Still waiting for the right time for others. Keep coming close.

I did it. I told the last of my siblings and all three of them know now. All three of them support me too. I am loved.

Good to hear BuffaloCO,

It seems when we share, the less of a burden our abuse becomes. It's always "what if" when we consider sharing the long kept secrets of the past, and I'm glad each of your siblings have treated you as they should. You deserve their love and support.

Thank you LinEar and Bluedogone. I'm blessed to have the support, but sad I had to introduce this to their lives. Still, they now understand me a lot better and clearly believe me, don't blame me. I've told them to it's no "secret" anymore, they can reach out to whoever they need to for support too. All in all, it's a great thing!

I'm glad that it's a net positive for you. With the family member I've disclosed to this far, feeling sadness/guilt about introducing the burden to their lives was (and is) certainly very difficult.
