Feeling very helpless friends.. no judgemental views please. very sensitive already. My brother is single and divorced and living in kolkota My mother is living in Hyderbad, I am living in US(I am younger sister to my brother) With past divorce he became more introvert and doesnot communicate and doesn't maintain good relationshipts, he doesn't care mother or me, he dont want to communicate, for 10 messages, he will give reply "fine" , he is very cold in behavouir. he behaves same with my mother , no reciprocation. We are bearing his behaviour, supporting whatever way we can. recently he got covid , being alone with no support around, he quarantined and suffered with severe weakness and fever and with no proper food, he lifts the phone when he wants and otherwise no. This really made both my mother and me worried. Luckily he recovered , he followed drs adivice. Me and mother tell him to come back to Hyd and live in his own apartment and enjoy the food delivery option avaialble, he works in IT , so earning wise it is sufficient. My mother is old fashioned lady but affectionate and supporting, being in US, I feel helpless, I keep supporitng my mother morally and whenever there is a chance I advice my brother, tell him good thiings to follow, if I keep on adivicing , he shows no response on phone which shows he doesn't want to listen to me. But whenever he feels he really needs help, he remembers mother like a 10th class child, he will call motheer in the midnight also without commonsense that he is bothering mother. So literally he is depressed and still doesn't want to take our support. I am ready to arrange the family counsellilng sessions through zoom, I dont know how to handle these helpless situations. how long it will go. No happiness and no smile on me or my mother or my brother for years together. no peace of mind. luckily I got hold of his colleague number and I spoke to him and asked his help.He said that my brother talks to him freely and he understood the situation and said he will try to talk to him. Dont know if I ever be able to solve my family problems.
