The now 17-year says her brother, who is a year older, continued living in the house with them and she built up resentment toward her parents.
“I wanted them to put me first, and I don’t feel like they did that. They let him, you know, just go back to normal … Life just went back to, like, normal, completely normal,” Addison says. “It made me feel like I wasn’t as important as my brother to my parents.”

I mean, you’re partly to blame because you didn’t do anything in the first place to protect me.”
