I want advice from psychiatrist. My brother has stopped going out of the house since 7 to 8 years . He doesnt likes the curtains to be even slightly ajar; He just peeks out the window from curtains for a minute or two. He's afraid to sleep alone in the room. Sometimes he shivers in sleeps and screams in fear. He just sleeps and eats all day. And sometimes have anger episodes about past. He has no friends. One time, in a reply to my mother, he said 'mein apni marzi say zinda thori na hoon'.
He has never hurt himself.
He has not completed his studies aswell. All this started happening when my father announced that we are broke and he has no means to financially support us. He was still in O levels at that time. This is not the main reason though. There are other reasons too but this post will become too long.
Our monthly income is below average. We cannot afford doctor's fee. Is there any way he can get help?I tried to talk to him about his depression but he wont listen.
