My 18 year old brother stays up all night long, everyday. He sleeps all day. He has no job, has not graduated high school and plays his games all night, when he is awake. He smoked some "bad" pot one night, and ever since then has had severe anxiety. I think the "pot" he speaks of has nothing to do with it, it's a downer and would make him chill out unless it was laced with something. Anyway.. My parents are at their wits end. They don't know what to do, and they think he'll be living with them forever. Last night he woke my parents up at 3 AM screaming he was having an anxiety attack. He does this either nightly, a few days a week, or once a week. He drank a whole pot of coffee last night, drinks ALOT of caffeine and then complains about the anxiety? My mother thinks he is becoming schizophrenic because last night he was not making sense and kept contradicting himself and was telling my Mother she should not take Tylenol PM's because it has "BAD" things in them -- and wouldn't take his pills the doctor prescribed him because he read the "side effects" yet he pops any other pill like its candy & wanted to go to the ER last night. That gets expensive, and he doesn't pay for it. What do we do? Therapists,Psychiatrists, etc. have never helped our whole family life together.
