Love and like are two different things. I love my brother. I do not like the person he has become. I can't recall a time that he hasn't had alcohol on
his breath in over 25 years. He can drink one beer and go from most giving person in the universe to the most obnoxious, mouthy, disrespectful person
you have ever met. He has not been there when the family has needed him to spare himself from feeling any discomfort whatsoever.
He was not raised that way, yet that's the way he is. He's my older brother and I have had to take care of him far more than I pray I will ever need
While my (our) father has been struggling to live for the last 6/8 months, my brother has not shown himself at all. Even after calling him and begging
him to at least visit for our father if not for himself... He still has not visited. When we weren't sure he would pull through the next few days, I
called... He never showed. We aren't sure right now... I gave up calling.
We both live about 10 miles away from our parents. So travel is no excuse. He is single with no children and works part time. The only excuse is to
save himself the discomfort/pain and in my view that is beyond selfish.
I am really not sure if I will ever be ok with him after this. Ever.
