  • Wedding: October 2011

A trip to the doctor for you brother is in order! Has he ever had mental health struggles in the past or is on any type of medication?

He may have had a psychotic break or sometype ofissue, that sounds like he needs some serious counseling and perhaps medication.

I’m sorry you had a traumatic wedding experience and I hope everything gets sorted out in due time!

Honestly sounds more like drugs than a mental illness. But the only person that can and should make that call is a health professional not random internet strangers.

But he could also be a very emotional person who is hurt by the fact that you excluded him from your actual wedding. It is often hard for those not invited to not be unhappy about it.

What I would do is express concern to your parents and try and get your brother to talk to someone. If he wont well then you either let him be (because you can’t force someon to get help if they don’t want it), keep trying whilst trying to rebuild the relationship or cut ties with your brother.

I think he should see a mental health professional, or possibly a GP. There are some diseases (like Lyme disease for example) that have psychiatric manifestations, and just being drugged might not help, or could even harm the situation.

To the destionation wedding? In that case he may feel hurt that you chose to have it somewhere he couldn’t afford (financially or timewise) to go to. I am not saying you were wrong to have it where you wanted (I had a DW) just that some people do not understand and get extremely hurt by it.
