My brother is 23 yrs old and was diagnosed with bd 2 1/2 yrs ago. Lately he has been consuming alcohol. We live with my 35 yr old aunt and she claims that he has tried to kiss her a couple of times when he is drunk. And that he even told her that he was falling in love. I want to know if this is being caused by bd and maybe he's confused. Because I know him and I'm pretty sure that normally he would never do something like this. Please someone help me understand what is going on!!!!!
I don''t know if you''re still checking this, but you say he''s Bipolar. Then, he isn''t supposed to be drinking, especially if he''s on medication. Also, it''s common knowledge alcohol, drugs, or any other stimulant causes an unbalancement. Talk to him when he''s sober, and quick. Don''t nag him or try to tell him how he''s "dissapointing" you or something like that. Make him feel un-judged and loved and get him help. Talking to a therapist helps and if you don''t have insurance there are other ways, too. Also, try to get him medication if he needs it. Legally, though.
