I do have siblings. At times they verify my version of things, but I have always been the most honest about what happened during our childhoods. I think they have fallen prey to social pressures more than I have. They have seen the kind of abuse and disrespect I've gotten for telling the truth (at times, they've been the ones to give it.) But yes, they have definitely been honest at times, fully owning up to what happened. This has been more so since my mother died and my father went to prison.
I really am inspired that you have almost overcome your anger. It gives me hope.
