My youngest brother has been dealing with schizophrenia for over ten years. No treatment ha ever worked particularly well and he's only gotten worse. He's almost catatonic now.
I don't have a super good understanding of the abuse because I stopped talking to my dad years ago, I believe after he gave all the clothes I had at his house to Goodwill with no warning. But my middle brother has lived with my dad since 2015 and I hear stories. Usually not out and out abuse, nothing physical, but neglect and petty meanness.
My brother gets violent occasionally. It's either towards my dad or my step dad, but he's hit my dad's girlfriend at least once and when that happened a couple months ago my dad sent him to a hospital until July, then put him in a cut rate caregiving home which as I understand it was just a home, like an old nurse lived there. That lasted maybe a week before my brother got kicked out, so my asshole father found another one that's uncredited, just a house like the other one and the caregiver is now an old pastor who posted a Louis Farrakahn video about Jews to Facebook.
The anger and depression and fear are just combining into numbness
Nvm now I'm crying
