I was molested at a very young age this never bothered me until last year about this time - eventually I told my parents and they couldn't believe it. It was my brother that done this to me.

And nobody has spoken about it to this day. I feel my family has failed me - everybody is so nice with him and it seems to me they have forgiven him - I can't forgive him no matter how hard I try - I hate him and I wish this comes back to him over and over again. I don't have anyone to talk to I haven't told my Fiance either I don't know how - I don't know how he is going to react!!

Please help me with some advise how I can get over this - I'm getting married soon but I don't want to see either of my family.

I think that when acusations of this sort arise long after the event, it is likely that family members will find it confusing and may hesitate to take sides. SO urgently, see a good local psychologist / counsellor, to explore this matter and work with your feelings about it, the nmore so because you are planning to get married relatively soon.
