Tell me about this

My brother is 400 plus lbs. He takes invega, he cannot walk and has major issues with spending and weight, I have no family. Its MENTALLY challenging to deal with day after day. He is 59 and I am 64. The things he is intellegent on he is VERY smart on but others well.

I dont know that people like this know HOW they hurt their loved ones. Its like living with drugs except an addict leaves to get his fix. I am stuck in the home on a fixed income which makes things EVEN work. Have any of you had this experience. NAMI did me no good to lean to. Can anyone comment?

Was he that morbidly obese before taking psychiatric drugs? I’m wondering if a nutritionist should be involved. Is it possible his health insurance would pay for one?
