My brother is threatening suicide. He says that he tried to kill himself last night and that he has tried 8 times over the last six months. Now I know my brother. He's full of sh*t. He just pulls this crap so that my mom will feel bad and he will get his way. And why shouldn't he? It works every time. But I'm tired of it. He's 18, he should have a job and be living on his own. Our parents make too much for grants and such, so they are paying for classes out of pocket. What does he do? He goes and drinks and fails at least a couple classes every semester. I'm sick of it. Should I call and have him put in the mental hospital on a 72 hour hold? I've never been there (it's called Mid-Mo and I've heard from people who have been there that it's pretty bad since it's state) but I would like for him to be around people who have real problems. Hes just being a spoiled rich kid and I'm sick of it.
