Two weeks ago my older brother (JJ) disappeared after a physical encounter with my younger brother. (Tim).
JJ has bipolar disorder and has been refusing to take medication. It has been stressful on my parents and my family because, as a result of his illness, he has lost his job, had several encounters with law enforcement, and now gone missing. He has tried to take his life on several occasions. Needless to say, we are all scared and devastated. My mother was thinking the absolute worse, and I sometimes so was I while sometimes I knew he would be okay.
He is okay. He turned up at a relative's house about a week after he went missing. This relative lives nearly 2,000 miles away.
During this time I couldn't eat much, and when I did it wasn't very good stuff. I just let myself go again, but I am ready to get back on track!
Fortunately, I have made some pretty good friends through this site and knowing they would be wondering where I had been, inspired me to come back and check in sooner as opposed to later.
I hope everyone is doing well. I am glad to be back. I am glad my brother is safe (names changed to protect.)
