That sounds like a really stressful situation 🙁 Don’t run off to city hall though, if you don’t want to! It sounds like your brother is due for a therapy session/review of his medication. I would try to get your parents on board with making sure this happens. You mention two brothers but I’m not sure what the other’s story is? Does he have mental health issues too or is he just being annoying? Overall, I think you and your folks need to get on the same page to get him/them some help now, before it gets any worse. Do your parents know how bad this has gotten? It may be that they end up not being invited to your wedding – which would be sad, but it might be for the best if you can’t sort it out or feel safe and happy about your day. All the best, I know what dealing with bipolar can be like, it’s very draining and I really feel your pain 🙁

It sounds like your brother IS in a manic state. Manic people often think they’re on to something or being the life of the party when really they’re just being cruel. A manic state can also involve extreme anger or violence. 

I hope there is good psychiatric care in your area. If your brother is on medication, maybe he went off it? (Bipolar people often do because they feel dull, or like they must be better now.) 

Hope it all turns out okay!
