So, I got some shit news.

So apparently my brother lost his job a few weeks back and the stress of that combined with the fact that he has a 1 year old daughter has led him to start binge drinking. Much to everyone's anger.

So a couple weeks back he got really drunk and was kicked out by his wife and checked himself into an out patient rehab facility, and then went back home.

But then this pass weekend, he started binge drinking again and got kicked out by his wife again and ended up at my sister's house with her family and our mom. Apparently he trashed my sister's car (she described it as smelling like a dumpster) and then trashed my mother's room and passed out on her bed.

My sister called tge police on him, but since it's not illegal to be drunk out of your gord in a private residence, they instead called EMS on him and he was diagnosed with alcohol poisoning, right now he's in the hospital getting detoxed. My sister plans to check him into an actual rehab facility (or at least attempt to persuade him).

I'm kind of a nervous wreck right now. I just got this news basically

I am sorry your family are going through that situation, honestly. These kind of things can end up pretty bad, hopefully won.t

Can you visit him?

I am not an expert, but I suppose these things require some family support, so try to communicate with him as soon as he can get calls.

and try to calm down a bit...

I think otherthings might have been contributing to it, all of which makes me feel like my family is cursed.

A literal curse?

Not literally. It just feels that way with how much shit luck it seems like everyone in my family has.

Like, I think something that might have been contributing to the stress of losing his job, beyond having a baby, is that the doctors keep suggesting that my mother could die in her sleep any day now.

Picturing the one's mother's death may be indeed a source of great stress. However, I don't know anyone in your family, so I can't tell the magnitude.

For know, I'd say you all need to seek for a way to stabilize your brother.

Well, I haven't heard any news about how my brother is doing today, everyone is at work or school right now, and I don't think anyone has talked to him since he was taken to the hospital

I don't know about there, but here we're obliged to hold them until they're fully sobered up and safe to go on their own.

Always takes a while.

Oh no, I'm really sorry. That's terrible - for all involved.

I hope she can persuade him, and this can be turned around. No one needs this kind of stuff in their life.

All tbe best.
