After reading this board I think by brother is bi-polar. He is not well right now very aggressive verbally abusive to his wife. She called us last night saying she was scared.
They live almost 2k miles away and my heart breaks to know she is alone fighting this. I did a search on the net and found a clinic not far from her. She only speaks spanish well . This clinic is dedicated to the latin community in the Dallas area. He refuses to talk to her about it and shuts down. Wont bath, watches religious shows all day preaches the bible but lives the opposite.Everyday he wants to buy some thing major like one day he wants a pool table, next day a new car and he cant drive (vision). They dont have the money for these items so he gets mad that she wont buy them for him.
He was just approved dissability cause he is lossing his vision to Retinitis Pigmentosa. He has been manic since I can remember around after he turned 19 or so. He is 47 and has had cycles that never lasted more than a 2 weeks now this one has been about 2 months.
I told me SIL that if he wont go on his own that maybe she can get a judge to make him go since she is scared of him. Is that correct can she get a judge to help her make him get treatment.
Thanks for your info any one know of help in the metro Dallas area.
