I know i've written about my brother Bob before,but now i think i'm reaching the breaking point.I will try to be as brief as i can.Simply put,Bob hates people,so consequently every new home he moves to,he has trouble with his neighbors (and talks about them incessantly).I'm not asking for advice (I believe i know what i need to do),i just wonder: How long before someone as paranoid and ill-tempered as he is,just totally "snaps",or whatever happens to people like that?Bob is completely alone right now except for me and his ex-girlfriend Kathy.It sounds like she may be about to bail on him shortly.Bob is 66 (!) years old and has had this problem since he grew up.He blames it all,not on our parents,but on the boys who picked on him in school when he was little.My feeling is that if he had a med change,it would make a world of difference (it did for our Dad during his last years).To that end,i did something i'm still ashamed of,i called the police and they picked Bob up and took him to the psych ward of a local hospital for evaluation.They didn't see a problem and they let him go.My dearly beloved family assures me there's no problem as well, "because [Bob]'s such a chickenshit".But how would you feel if you had to listen to him rant and rave about "those people" (his neighbors) and it never,ever gets any better?Obviously i tried to get his medication changed but i failed.
