Brother at Crisis Point
Posted by Crusha on 8 October 2015.
So since posting my last message a few weeks ago my Brother had another alcohol relapse on Friday which led him to coming to mine, reacting to me because I told him to go away and he was not allowed into my home drunk. He kicked open the door upset that I had locked him out & was very verbal. Neighbour called police & he was removed & dropped on the streets. He returned the next day regretful of his mistake begging me to take him in til he found somewhere to live (which he hasn't done in 3 months of staying with me). I remained strong refusing to let him in. He got into my car which was open & slept in there for 2 days refusing to leave me. I couldn't cope so I left my home & walked to a relatives house & stayed there for a few days to cope. The police asked him to leave the car which he did after a few days & he has been constantly texting me emotional blackmail begging for me to help. I am now back home & police visitede last night as they had a call to say he is sending suicidal messages to his girlfriend and he was in my area so they were trying to find him. I have had no news back as yet. I am so broken of his destructiveness & it is so hard to remain strong knowing he is on the streets.
