Yeah, it's a copy of that.

As I read this I feel like I'm reading a page from our own family's history. My brother is 35 and has only now been diagnosed with BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER. Have they ruled it out or even looked into it at all for your son?

I love my brother, but he is ill. He has moments of rage that are, to us, unfounded. In these moments: he has threatened us with knives; worked out detailed plans of how he would kill each of us; has threatened many times to kill himself; said he sympathized and understood how mass shooters felt; the list goes on. But when he comes down, he is so remorseful and describes it as an out-of-body experience and his other, kinder, self feels bad looking on, knowing that he is hurting those he loves. He cries in our arms, apologizing and then swells up with frustration that no one can help him. My parents brought him to a psychiatric hospital when he was young and they turned him away saying he only needed love. The police said they couldn't do anything unless we reported a crime. But he doesn't belong in jail!! He is willing to check himself into a psych ward but they won't take him because, according to him, he is not a danger to others since he hasn't done anything yet. What???

He is now being followed, he is on medication and is doing better, day by day. But we got lucky that one psychiatrist out of a hundred decided to believe him. The rest are not so lucky.

How long will be continue to treat the symptoms instead of the illness?
