So I posted here not too long ago regarding my brother and how to handle or deal with him. Since then we had another event which made it painfully clear that he needs help. He stated we were all going to hell and that Joan of Arc had spoken to him and told him to free Canada. Pretty heated argument in which he wouldnt let us leave, He had been selling of his possesions and ours. Following that we had him brought to the hospital where the doctor confirmed he had schizophrenia, but he could not control whether we keep him due to the horrible Canadian laws. We had a trial regarding whether or not he should stay, and basically the doctor, the lawyer, and the psychologist, and his attorney all agreed my brother had schizophrenia but because he wasn’t hurting anyone yet they didn’t need to keep him. Truly pathetic, we stated a list of things hes done that has shown hes getting more and more angry and violent, but that wasn’t enough. When they stated the above thing about Joan of Arc, and our previous event with holy water he denied any of it happening.
Since hes returned he has sold more of his items, and last week even asked for a gaming device of mine to use. Today I went into his room to discover that he had already sold this device that I’ve had since I was a young child. I’m really not sure of what to do at this point and maybe I’m just venting frustrations about a system here that seems to care more for violent patients as opposed to patients who are becoming worse. The entire staff at the hospital told us that he should stay and he should be taking medication of some sort as he is very vocally abusive. His vocal abuse is very targeted towards my mother and seems to be targeting most of his anger at her, which we stated in the trial but they were not interested in.
How long did some of you have to continue this process or still are before it ended? My mom is afraid that hes gonna take all his money from selling stuff and just leave. I’ve already lost him as a brother, at this point hes merely a stranger.
