I have come here because I am desperate and don't know where to turn else. I have a brother who over the years has suffered from depression, extreme anger and what I believe schizophrenia. He has not worked for nearly three years. All he does is stay inside his room the whole day. He refuses to seek psychiatric attention. He has made life miserable for my parents who worry about his present state. My parents have suffered so much, I feel that the stress of it will kill them soon. They have considered forcing him (via a court order) to see a psychiatrist, but I don't know if they would actually go through with it.
Many times I have asked God for His assistance in helping my brother (and to stop the emotional wrecking of my parents), but nothing has changed. Instead, it has gotten worse. I can't understand why God has not helped. It is like this situation is slowly killing my family. It sometimes makes me question my faith.
I don't know what to do. My parents will not kick him out of the house for fear that he will (in one way or another) get in trouble. He will not seek help. I feel this is the end of the road.
My family needs help. Please, I beg for your help. Please pray for us.
