Sue, So sorry about
your brother. I had an older brother who sustained a head injury in the service when he was 19 years old and spent his entire adult life trying to compensate for the injuries. Needless to say he was SO misunderstood and it was very hard on him emotionally . . . my heart goes out to you. He had many stays in the VA psych ward as a result . . . very hard to watch. (I used to bring him contraband cigarettes because he enjoyed passing them out to the other patients . . . hee hee heee . . . good for his spirits . . . I was scolded by other family members, but it was fun espionage!!) BTW he spent his last few years in life as his best adult years because of being properly medicated for depression. I hope the docs find the right combination of meds and therapy to help your brother.
Some hot tea for you sis!!
In His Grip
