On May 25 last year I found out that my brother had had inappropriate contact with my 15yo daughter. I immediately called the cops, filed police a report, filed a restaraining order, evicted him from my home, everything I possibly could do to make sure my daughter was protected.
The police said there wasn't much they could do since he only managed to rip her shirt off before she ran and locked herself in the bathroom. After which he apologized and left. So my brother is free and living in the same town as me.
I seen him one time driving down the road on his moped and it took every ounce of strength I had to turn the other way and not smear him across the road. But if I did that I would be the bad guy and end up in prison, then where would my kids be?
We were handling things ok. My daughter is doing great. She is in therapy and making great strides. I am in therapy and was doing great. Until I seen him. Now the reality of the situation has really hit me. He is free! He lives near me! He lives near my daughter! I am so afraid that I won't be able to control my actions if I see him again. In May of this year my daughter will be getting her permit. She will have more freedom to go places alone once she gets her license. What if she runs into him? How would she handle that? How would he handle that?
I just want to lock my family away and never leave my house again! I can't even trust my own brother, how the hell am I supposed to trust strangers! I don't know what to do anymore. My anxiety is through the roof. I'm already on meds for it and they don't help. I'm going crazy over this.
I would love to move far far away but because of the custody agreement with my daughters biological father we cannot move out of state or more than 100 miles without his consent and he won't give it. I don't know what to do.
Sorry, I just kind of needed to get that off of my chest. Thanks to anyone who took the time to read it. And if anyone wants to bash me for "letting this happen" or any of that other bullshit, don't waste your time. There is nothing you can say to me that I haven't already said to myself.
