My 14yr old sister moved in with me, my partner and 2 kids in December 2010, as she was having problems with my mum. Things were going great till the 9th June when she accused my partner of raping her. Social services and the police got involved and my partner was only allowed to see the kids for an hour a week supervised by my mum. It has completely thrown me, I couldn’t sleep and wasnt eating
I finally went to the doctors and he sent me for counselling and diagnosed me with depression. I refused the anti depressants as I am also pregnant. I then found out that my sister had been telling her friends that my eldest daughter was hers and I was raising her because she was too young. Also that her and my partner have a child together.
Now none of this is true, no one believes her not even the police, but they all have procedures to follow which I completely understand. Social services have been useless, they have not been informing me of what’s goin on, its alway me trying to get in touch with them without much luck. It has really messed me up and the only support I really have is from my friend, but she also has her own life and I feel like sometimes I am burdening her with my problems.
I am one of them people that will smile when inside I am actually crying out for help and my relationship with my mum has deteriorated because she is always with my sister. It has really messed my eldest up too, she is only 22months old but she has completely changed, she wont sleep, at night wakes up screaming for mummy and daddy, she has started hitting me and she wont eat properly.
The police came on Tuesday the 2nd August and told me they wouldnt be taking it any further as they dont have enough to go off and my sister tripped herself up a few times, one by giving two different locations as to where it was supposed to have taken place and two, the fact that she was still living here and would willingly stay in the house and walk the dog with my partner.
The rape was supposed to have taken place on the 1st march when they were walking the dog, and apparently my partner was very drunk, that also isn’t true because he isnt allowed in the house when he has been drinking, due to trouble in the past. Also my sister cried rape last year and the case went nowhere because of lack of evidence and the fact that she was still hanging around with the lad she accused, she has recently just added him as a friend again on Facebook.
Does that sound like a girl who has been raped? I think not!! Hopefully this will all be over soon I just have to wait for social services to get in touch to do their core assessment then hopefully we can get on with our lives without my sister in it.
