So my brother was diagnosed with early schizophrenia back in July, we had an incident where he started hearing voices in the furniture and started throwing holy water all throughout the house. It’s clear that he developed this over time as my brother was never religious and was quite social, but he eventually became withdrawn and stopped talking to most of my family. After we took him to the hospital (where we had to tell police he assaulted my mother so they would take him) he refused to let the doctors get anything out of him or even talk to him. The doctor gave him a pamphlet just describing what he may be going through and my brother ripped it up and said he wasn’t crazy. Since then he seems to have become gradually worse, while he is a bit more social its in a negative way. He constantly shouts at mother for little things such as her making too much food or her not getting expensive food that is 100% organic. He even shouts at her if she picks up the phone telling her all the friends shes ever made are bad people and bad people go somewhere bad. Other situations involve when we went to purchase a new van and he started shouting at the salesman because he had heard him say that my brother is a smaller man and he is better than him, forcing us to leave. You cannot argue with him or represent any opinion because he must be right or else he will become more angry. Other weird cases involve whenever my oldest brother comes to visit he will often stand in the kitchen and just stare at us, not for a few minutes but for a lengthy period of time.
He refuses to take any medication or even any suggestion that he needs help in anyway, he is under the constant assumption that living in North America is a hellhole and that he is going to leave. He refuses to work despite my parents growing age and we cannot seek welfare without his consent. He seems to barely sleep and will sleep for maybe just a few everynight. We are unsure of how to deal with him because it is drastically effecting our lives. We do our best to include him, but he always seems negative and angry. This man used to play video games with me and play with me, now I cannot even look him in the eye without seeing something is wrong. I’m worried that he seems to be getting worse and he is more angrier as the days go by, what can I do short term and long?
