I’ve posted about my brother in the past. If you care to catch up (although I’m not sure why you’d want to) please feel free. You can see the previous post here:
I am just frustrated again. After my brother moved out of the place he was living in (back in January) he ended up going to stay with my dad a few hours away from where were live. He was there for a week and ahalf or two. While he was down there he texted me telling me he needed to go to the hospital because he was suicidal. (he has cried wolf on this multiple times). I told him that my dad needed to take him down there because if it was that serious there was no reason for someone to come get him and drive him up here as that’d take approximently seven hours or so. He also stormed out of the hospital last time we took him and I”m sure he’d have done it again. Then he’d be homeless cause he had nowhere to stay here. A few hours later he says he’s fine. (I think he’s biopolar or manic depressive or something) He then got a call that he got a job here in Kansas City. He then needed to move back. He was mad that I wouldnt’ come get him in the middle of the week, I wasn’t about to drive seven hours in one night when I have work the next day. I told him I’d get him over the weekend. He found a ride.
So he started living with this lady he doesn’t know. She is a member of a church that he had been talking to the pastor of. So the lady said he could stay there for six weeks without paying rent as long as he helped do some odd jobs around the house. He has to pay for his own food and get his own transportaion. This was part of the contract she made him sign. Well that hasn’t really happened becuase she’s given him rides. (Besides the point). I told him when he moved back that I’d give him a ride to work once a week. Yes I could do it more often then that but that is what I decided on. So I have stuck to my word, I’ve given him a ride to work once a week since he moved back up here. The problem comes in when he wants to do other random things. Sometimes he’ll call and ask if I can let him come over to use our internet or bring my nephew over. On most occasions I say yes, unless I have other plans. When I have other plans he gets all pissy. He then says things like “don’t go out of your way for me, don’t put your life on hold, don’t help me at all”. He is being sarcastic. He told me I don’t put my life on hold enough to help him (which I could go on and on about.)
So today is just kind of my breaking point. He asks me to come over and watch the basketball game but says that he is stuck at the mall with the lady he lives with so I’d need to come get him. Well SO and I had just got out of a movie and were barely going to make it home in time for the game, so I told him that wouldn’t work out. Then tonight he texts me asking if I’m going to go to church tomorrow. I told him that I didn’t think I was going to but if I did I’d call and let him know. He said he really needed to go. So after I tell him I’ll call him if I decide to he says that never mind he’s just going to end this sh*t (meaning kill himself)
I’m soooo sick of him acting like the world is ending because someone tells him know. He got himself into this situation and I help as I can.
This was mostly just me venting, and I appreciate you letting me do that.
I feel like everything above makes me sound like a bad person, if it does maybe you should read my other post… or maybe I am a bad person, either way…. I don’t think I really am. 🙁
