Brother Admitted

Posted Sep 12 2008 4:01am

Not sure if you recall, but I have a younger brother who was the first to be diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

I think part of my manic blow up on Sunday was fueled by seeing how much weight my brother had lost. When he is off meds and nearing the point when he must be hospitalized, he stops eating.

When I saw him on Sunday - approximately 2 months since the last time - he was half his size.

Anyway, mother finally " saw" that he needed intervention and had my father call me to assist with getting him to a hospital.

He's in; for the 4TH TIME in 3 years because my parents can't set boundaries and give hi consequences for not taking his meds!
