My little Brother. Anyone who has kept up with my messed up family... this is my half-brother. Same Mother. We went through a lot together. I left home when I was 13 though and kept touch off and on. He had a Learning Disorder and some intense anger issues as a child. ex: threw the High School Principal up against a wall. He was expelled and has since got his GED. He has never been *OK*. I have offered him help over the years, he is 5 years younger than me. He has gotten into so many bar fights all of the fun stuff that goes along with untreated mental illness. Well he has just had his 2nd son with another woman. I finally go ahold of him... the baby is 3 months old. My brother has me very concerned. I first told him to get a Vasectomy. He is leaving this woman, they no longer talk. He says having this child was a huge mistake. He told me he is afraid of his anger. He asked the family not to leave him alone with the baby, of course they now treat him like he his crazy. He told me he is afraid he will shake the baby. He said he hates babies. I told him he needs to seek help, he needs to leave them or they need to leave him. He is not bad and I am proud of him for voicing his fears. They are wrong for telling him he is crazy, they should be helping him. He said he is going to *try* and get help. I told him he NEEDS to go and get help. I told him all about my feelings when I was younger. I told him that our family has serious Mental Illness and that this is not his fault. He may need medication and he may be amazed at how he feels after getting help. I told him he is 33 and this is not going away. This is not something that is just a behaviour issues. This is so much more. He has been dealing with this his whole life. No-one has ever helped him. He has never known what to do, he had always floundered. He has always made the worst choices. His Dad just yells at him and tells him he is stupid. Everyone in his life has always treated him like he is stupid. He told me he is going to 3 gyms now and fighting. He is doing that extreme fighting, like Kimbo. But he is so angry when he does it, he says he just does not care, even if he dies. He did tell me he felt better after talking to me. He wanted to get help now... Please pray that my Brother seeks help. I am so worried about him I am so angry. I hate Mental Illness right now.
