Welcome to JA. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in NYS. I am preparing my reply and will post in one moment.
I am glad to be able to help you again with this issue of people treating you badly. First, I am wondering f you are suffering from and/or being treated for depression? One of the ways that depression manifests itself is through seeing the world and the people in our lives through a negative perception. For instance your brother may genuinely have been thinking about your best interests or may just have been being dramatic when he talked about your weight/health but if you are prone to depression you would have felt irritable and/or seen this as very negative, an insult, etc. Does this make sense?
