Long story short- My brother for the past 5 years has beleived very strongly that my mother poisoned him. He has been diagnosed w/ maj. depression and ptsd. I want to avoid giving too much information as to respect his privacy.
I'm now pregnant and cannot handle dealing with him. He gets angry when I don't beleive his suspisions and has alienated most of the family. It's been a long five years and I just can't cope anymore. I've tried to get him help, had him commited, he was prescribed abilify but won't ever take it even though I know it helped him when he was initially commited. There's no way to get through to him, what I see as a delusion has been his reality for the last five years. I feel terrible for him, what a horrible feeling he must have to think his own mother tried to hurt him and no one will beleive him. He is on SSI and doesn't seem to have a very happy life. Drinks a lot and I beleive he may abuse drugs.
I've done everything I can, contacted mental health professionals even let the courts know he needed help when he was arrested. Nothing ever sticks with him, he never continues the counsling and insists he is not delusional.
So now after being told I'm a horrible person, and other awful thinkgs- I've blocked his # and he has no other way to contact me. I feel terrible but I'm pregnant and all of this makes me ill. I know he is so sad right now as I told him I need to cut him off right now and blocked him. He told me to "go to Hel#"
Just sad and hoping that I did the right thing. Not sure if there is anything else I can do after 5 years of this.
