your brother – there is one in every bunch. Not comforting but the Gods Honest Truth.  Clearly you guys/y’all/whatever had a rough upbringing but are now adults.  He has a choice every day and one of them is to chose not to drink/do drugs/whatever causes him to act irresponsibly.  Unfortunately the consequences of his actions affect you too.  You are also an adult and have to decide what your reactions to his situation is going to be.  There is a lot of help available to people who are institutionalized.  He also has the choice to accept that help.

your mother – I was pissed at mine today because she bought favor bags and ribbon without asking me.  HAHAHA  your mom is worse:)  She is also an adult. If she chose to rent to your brother and he stiffed her, that is between the two of them.  Stay out of it.  Easy for me to say, I know.  If you are legally responsible for the car (make sure you are), do what your brother asks.  Your mother has no claim on his primary transportation.  I know this because this past week I have been evicting a tenant.  I’m guessing that your brother does not have the means for proper legal representation, so I recommend contacting Legal Aid on his behalf.

I know I am not telling you anything you don’t know.  Don’t let them affect your happiness!

Honestly, I’d probably stop answering the phone when your mom calls. She sounds like everything is a huge drama fest and it’s a waste of your time, emotions and energy to be caught up in that all the time. I’d stay the heck out of all the stuff between your mom and your brother and let them hash it out on your own. It’s their mess, not yours. She’s not doing you any favours, so no need for you to bend over backwards just to help her!

Take a big deep breath. Just because she’s causing all this craziness does not mean you need to be sucked in too!
