Hi, my little bro started to act strange yesterday. A few days back, he told that he couldn't sleep from the past 2-3 days. Then suddenly, the following day he was crying a lot without any reason. His eyes were also red. But yesterday, he was shouting, walking here and there inside the house. He even broke some of the household items. And the worst thing was that he was trying to beat whoever goes near him and he wasn't scared of anyone. He even hit our mom and dad. He seems to forget whom he is speaking to. He was behaving very strange. But, he used to be a sincere person. This was the first time he was behaving in such manner. However, there was a case that happened 3 yrs back. He tried to leave our house without telling to anyone or asking for any kind of permission. He told he will go to a mountain and worship God(This seems to be Superstitious issue also coz people in my locality has Superstitious beliefs ). That time also he was a bit angry on our mom and dad. I doubt if this is due to Depression? One thing is that he was failed in the recent higher secondary examination. About him: He is a 22yrs old man and no medication was done before. I would like to know what treatments can be taken up at this stage.
I dont know if this is the right category but it seems like it is. My sister is totally obsessed in being in a relationship with a man. Her longest relationship was probably 6 months. She is 45 years of age. We come from a family were my mother is total narcissist. We did not get very much attention or were taught some basic human functions. She asks people for favors, with me she thinks because I am her sister then I should do favors for her. Its been a constant issue with her. Our parents bought apartments and both of us were supposed to been taking care of them. She would come up with excuses not to help out. She would disappear. Say that she has plans. She cant say no to a relationship, fearing that the man will leave her. This weekend was it for me. She was remodeling her kitchen, left the workers at her home by themselves and she left town with with her boyfriend. The contractor came to my house and told me that the Granite was being laid down and I needed to come to inspect that. that my sister left town and he wont pay the granite guy until someone comes. I had people working in my house. I told him that if it could wait until she came back. He said no. I must go. I knew this contractor and I really did not want to let him down. I sent my sister a texted messages She did not feel that what she did was wrong. That I just might as well take care of it. I called her mrs high society, She turned to my parents who always defend her, my mom told me there is nothing wrong with doing favors for her. Even when I tell my mom that she does nothing for me. She disappears. She is very unreliable. I cant trust her to come through with something. She is a genius in manipulating people in thinking that she does not do anything wrong. I am tired of her behavior. She thinks because she took me to the airport one time, It entitles her to be right. I don't want to speak with her again. She is total mental case and does not do anything for me. all she does is critique me because I am overweight. She acts like she is better. Our parents are moving to town and there is nothing I can do not to avoid her. please help
