I'm feeling like I'm a bit of a drama queen at the moment, but I don't mean to be. Honest I don't. Things just seem to be happening around me lately.......... Sigh.
This time it's my own family's turn to exhibit their dysfunctionality.
Today my brother J picked an argument with my mother. When she drove off on him before he'd finished his rant, he decided to follow her home. Luckily that wasn't where she actually went, because he had a little tantrum and trashed the house. God only knows what he would have done had he been able to find her. He then took his rage for a drive around town and caused some havoc elsewhere as well.
My brother is a drug addict. At the moment he's using and at the mercy of his addiction. Most likely a combination of marijuana and amphetamines or possibly heroin. He's also mentally ill. So the drugs transform his normal quirky behaviour, quick temper and secretiveness into full blown conspiracy theories, rages and paranoia. The police were talking about having him scheduled (committed to a mental ward for evaluation) tomorrow if he isn't acting a bit more rationally in the morning. I hope they do. I hope he gets some help this time for his head space and not just his addiction.
