How do I cope with

Posted by searching

I mentioned my having to deal with my brother and having to send him to rehab and a sober house, but what I didn't mention was that I suffer from several mental illnesses.  I am bi-polar, have border line personality disorder, post traumatic stress disorder and co-dependency.  I am the oldest of three kids, I raised my sister and I am the punching bag for everything that has ever went wrong in my brothers life.  Ever day is a battle for me just to cope with my illnesses yet I am having to deal with his anger too.  How do I cope other than checking myself into a mental facility [which sounds like a pretty good ideal to me right now].
