I have bipolar disorder type 2. My family knows very well that mentally I am unstable. My mom, dad and sister understood that. But my brother who is the oldest, 30 years, can' t seem to register it. Or maybe he doesn' t care to consider me. He triggered me two times by lashing out on me. He made me cry during those two occasions. I told him that you are making me cry and he said " see if I care, go ahead". Unfortunately, the second time he triggered me, it happened two weeks before my exams for medical school. I could not write. 12 years of studying in school and 3 years of medicine just gone down the drain. He ruined my dreams. He later apologized but it didn't matter I could not write my exams. I also lost a really good group of friends who have supported me far better than my brother. I'm cutting him off because he ruined my dreams. And because he's a dickhead.
