I’m not a fan of presenting my personal problems to other people, and I don’t plan on going much into detail, and I would like to deal with this myself, but it seems I need a bit of help with this problem.
I have a problem with my younger brother not taking his medication, and it’s led to physical altercations and much verbal abuse from him several times. My parents have almost completely given up on him, having ‘tried’ to get him to take his medicine for years with constant failure (they make excuses, i.e. How are they supposed to do it when they’re not home? Should they do it first thing in the morning/Sit there and WATCH him take his medicine (yes)?). My brother even admits that the reason why he’s so… impossible to handle is because he doesn’t take his medicine, but he refuses to take it for some reason.
My sister and I have tried to talk down our parents several times, but my dad doesn’t care, and my mom has given up on trying to make him take his medicine.
Because of his horrible attitude, I fear he’s going to struggle greatly in life when/IF he graduates highschool, which I don’t think is going to happen (he’s already a loner and wannabe emo kid/weeaboo) .
If anyone can offer me any advice, please do. I’m trying to be a responsible brother here and would like to help him, but he doesn’t let anybody help him, and won’t do what he’s told to do.
Of course, if this type of topic isn’t welcome here, I’ll request deletion and find help elsewhere (if you know where I can find help, please tell me).
Thanks, and sorry in advance for bothering anyone with my personal problems.
