I just wanted to praise all of you for sharing and recognize the hard work you have done towards this serious condition.

I talked with my brother last night and he blames the family for "the way" he is. Well, a lot of that is true. He has a major anger issue too. I still feel that the depression has to be addressed, but last night he said he feels fine.

I am on topamax, lexapro, buspar, and trazodone. It has taken a lot of meds to even my PTSD to a point that I can live with people. I was hoping to get him on Wellbutrin and topamax from what I read here. But, everything that I have read about this is that he has to be willing for treatment.

What really got my attn was that he was hit in a bar and has a face fracture on the side and a major limp now. He thinks nothing will be done and he repeatly says, "I DON'T CARE. I DON'T WORRY ABOUT NOTHING. I COULDN'T CARE IF SOMEONE KILLED ME." My mother immediatly wanted to get life insurance on him and he refused the drug screen. He is a small man with a major anger issue. This isn't good at all.

He constantly forgets or loses things really bad. He has lost jobs for falling asleep. I believe there is much he isn't saying. I am a nurse and I see it in his fingernails that his health is suffering from his hidden habits.
