Happy 40th Birthday to my brother Tim!

As hard as it had been for my brother to have good days since he became schizophrenic I hope that today on his 40th Birthday he will have a good day. I love my brother so much and seeing him suffering has been like a knife to the chest. I'd like to take back every bad thing I've ever said to him, I want him to be happy and to not be afraid. Joining the support group for Families or Schizophrenics has perhaps hurt me more then it has helped as so many our sharing experiences they have had for years with loved ones with absolutely no sign of truly getting better, just kind of being passable.... It's just heartbreaking to know my brother is likely permanently changed by this. Will I ever be able to truly joke around with him again? Will he ever be able to overcome this awful set back and live a normal life? God please help my brother I have never been a super religious person but I need help and I feel like it's more then those on Earth can do to truly help him. Love and prayers our appreciated, and birthday greetings

Your pain is real Chris, and I do understand it. There is so much more I could share here but decline at this time. Mental illness is torture for all involved. Happy 40th to Tim.
