My brother has bipolar disorder (manic depressive, and hears voices etc) and has been struggling for a while going on and off his meds. My mom called me this evening - he tried to commit suicide. He lit himself on fire. They live in different states - she's on her way to the hospital now. I don't know how severely he's hurt, although she was able to speak to him on the phone earlier.
We've always been very
close and I knew he wasn't doing well because he always stops
communicating when he's having a hard time, and I hadn't heard from him
in a long time...I think since before Will and Dash were born. He's been
on my mind all week and I kept planning to call him but kept putting it
off. I want so much to be with him right now but I can't.
