Hi RSD ME,

Thoughts and prayers still coming from here for your brother. I know such a deep and complex situation will take a while to sort out, but hoping he can find the Path that leads to resolution.

Dave.

It is always rough when the people we love are suffering. It is good to be doing something constructive for your brother and asking folks here to reach out in prayer. Add me to the list....he is in my prayers. would you feel comfortable sharing his first name or initials? Thanks, Diandra

hi everyone. i was wondering if you could pray for my brother again. he is having a really hard time and though i've tried my best to help him he is still struggling. he has an addiction and for some unknown reason he won't let me help him to get better. i thought he was starting to find his way again but it was all just made up stories on his part. it breaks my heart to see him like this. i will never give up on him but in the meantime i would really appreciate all the prayers i can get to try to help him get better. thanks for listening to my heavy heart.

So sorry to hear your brother is still having problems. Addiction is so hard to let go of whatever it happens to be, drugs, alcohol. All too often they tell you what you want to hear. I'm glad you are not giving up on him. He needs to know, when he is ready, you will be there for him.

For years my daughter had a cocaine addiction/depression before she was able to admit she needed help. With the help of here sister, she went into a program. She did fail the first time. The second time/program was in 1997. She has been drug free since then. She has gotten certification and is now working with the addicted and their families.

Definitely will keep your brother in my prayers.

thanks everyone for your kind thoughts. my brother was never one to ever take drugs or alcohol. he was very health conscious while we were growing up. but i believe he is bipolar and that it was undetected for a long time even from my parents and after a divorce he just snapped and said he turned to an addiction. he says he is not addicted anymore but his actions to me say otherwise. it is difficult to be sure because the symptoms of his addiction he said he had are similar to bipolar symptoms so i don't know if he is lying to me or not. i do know that he went from a well educated successful man with a beautiful home to an unemployed homeless man who is jumping from one friend to another and sleeping on their couch. i have begged him to go to a hospital with me to get help and then offered to help him get a place after he was better and he refused. i don't understand why he won't let me help him. he isn't happy right now but would rather be alone and homeless then have someone who loves him help him get his life back. i can only pray at this moment that he will find his way. and i always let him know i love him and will be there when he is ready to get the help he so desperately needs. i have never dealt with something like this before and am very sick with my own health problems with my rsd and i don't have alot of stamina or money to help him much. but i do my best. my mother and brothers have written him off and i don't want to be around them anymore because of this. they don't even want to deal with me because i am sick. it makes me very sad. i hope that he will find his way back to health and happiness. i pray for him everyday. thank you all so much for praying for him too. it means alot to me. you are really good friends.

Your brother is lucky to have a loving sister; but please take care of your health and try not to get too stressed.

I sent you a PM.

RSD ME, I think that your brother is privileged to have a loving and caring sister like you.
