Let me start from the beginning.
My older brother has been screwing up his whole life. Slowly, he's been killing my dad with all of this stress and disappointment, and from time to time, every once in awhile, dad gets so angry and depressed he's bitter and extremely mean with everyone. This happens about once every 2 years. Usually, after 3 days, it starts to die down. Today is the 5th day, and he's only gotten worse. Normally he's a saint. The kindest, funniest man I know. But recently, my brother announced he's moving to Las Vegas (which is out of our state) with some girl he just met. My brother with girls is they love him for a couple of months, than he gets drunk and mean and they get a restraining order on him. His ex-wife eevn picked up the kids and ran. We still haven't found her. Anyway, he's leaving and this is one of the worst. My father has become increasingly verbally abusive and practically screams the whole time. Today, I calmly asked him to watch what he says, because a lot of it was towards me and is completely mean, untrue, and simply uncalled for. I told him I knew it was because of my brothers'm actions and not only did he say I was wrong, he called me an unappreciative, spoiled brat, right to my face. That is not true. I thank them 5 times for everything they get me, and am very grateful for what my mom and dad do. I said it had to do with my brother, since this hadn't started until the night he caled and informed us of his plans. He said I was wrong, that he'd always been that way, because no one listens to him. That is not true. We always listen to him, and sometimes we even repeat what we hear back to him. I bluntly said, 'Dad, stop it with the verbal abuse. It's all uncalled for and you know it. There has to be other ways for you to release you're anger.' He told me that maybe he should try physical abuse, instaed. I stopped him right there. I said, 'Listen, I promised myself if anyone EVER abused ME, I'd call the cops, no matter WHO it was. And, if the cops can't get there in time... let me put it this way, you bite me, I'll bite you right back!' He shut-up than, and hasn't said anything good or bad for the rest of the night. He's most likely going to be abusive again tomorrow, so I'm thinking if he keeps it up for more than a week and a half, rather than his usual 3 days-week, I'm going to suggest to my mother that she and he become separated. Not divorced. I just can't live with him this way. Not in my house. It's in my mothers name and my name will eventually be on the deed, not his. If he keeps it up, I want him out 'til he can cool down. It's like he's not my dad anymore. What are your opinions on my solution, on my problem? I need an immediate response.
