My older brother and I were both physically and emotionally abused by our mother as children. Besides regular beatings, I've watched my brother forced to stand outside in freezing weather naked for punishment, I was forced to run, chased by my step-father on a bike beating me, beaten in the head with a "Maglite", forced to carry xanax across the Mexican border, ect... I recently admitted myself to a psychiatric hospital and was diagnosed with PTSD and depression regarding this abuse we incurred. I'm now 28, but only just seeing the long term affects of this abuse. My brother reported it to the school when we were little, but they only called our mother instead of investigating the facts. We were beaten even more, so we never reported it again. As an adult, is there anything I can do now?
