My mom lives next door to me and she is 72 years old. My brother who is almost 50 lives in an RV in her back yard. He has been a meth addict for several years and I get so tired of hearing her complain about him. He does not work and does not have a car. He can't even get a driver's license because he hasn't paid child support for his two children who are teenagers. His kids live 45 minutes away and they have not seen or heard from him since they were babies. They do not remember him. They contact me to try to contact him and I feel so helpless. I've told my mom that she is co-dependent. I bought her the book "Co-Dependent No More". She has told him that he needs to move somewhere else, but she still allows him to use her electricity and water and yard. He has had his girlfriend living there with him on and off too. I told my mother that if I was her, I would call the police and tell them that he is trespassing. But she won't because she is afraid he'll go to jail and blame her. I think the police are looking for him now because I had a message on my answering machine recently. And why they had my number, I have no idea. I never speak to him or see him and haven't spoken to my mom in almost a month, it's too painful.
