Alright... I don't live with my parents. I live with my grandparents (my dads parents). I moved out for many reasons, not just the one I am talking about here. For Christmas, I sent my parents money to rent a car to come visit me because they are always having money problems so I said "hey, I wanna see them so what the heck!" After they had been here for 3 days, my dad stole money from my mom and took it to get alcohol. My dad has always been an alcoholic. It's just a fact. He has and I don't think he will ever be a non-alcoholic. He isn't constantly drunk, he just drinks to the point of passing out for a day or so and mixes pills and everything when he does it. Everytime this happens, he says he's going to stop drinking. The last time it happened, I believed him. He and my mom came to my boyfriends house to have "a meeting" where he proceeded to tell us that he was stopping and that if he didn't, my mom would leave him/kick him out of the house. Last time it happened, my family was here for Christmas vacation (I hadn't seen them since August) He stole the money and bough all kinds of alcohol. He disappeared for a few hours with my cousins boyfriend and came back not able to walk or even stand. My mom was picking me up from my boyfriends while all this was happening, so she had no idea it was even going on. She got a call saying that my dad was drunk and passed out in the living room of my cousins house. As soon as we got there, she searched his pockets for alcohol, pills, and sharp objects (he's been diagnosed as schizophrenic also). She took all of those things from him. My cousin and I left to take her baby to the babysitters (I had to drive her boyfriends car because he was drunk and passed out too). When we came back, my mom told me that we just missed the cops almost arresting him for trying to attack my cousins boyfriend with a knife because he thought it was him that took his liquor when it was actually my mom. He had passed out again before we got back. When he woke up again, he asked why my mom took his knife and she had to tell him that the cops had been there and taken it, etc. Then he got up to look for his Xanax (which he had also given to my cousins boyfriend) and started going through my mom's purse. They struggled and he pushed her and went looking for a kitchen knife ( he was saying things about hurting himself) So my mom had to call he police again while he chased her around. He took off running out the door as the police were on their way. They searched the neighborhood for him and finally found him and arrested him. He stayed the night in jail and my grandparents bailed him out. At the "meeting" the next day at my boyfriends, I was told that my parents would be seperating and he would be coming to live with me and my grandparents. I didn't have much to say. My grandpa is also an alcoholic so I know they would drink together, they have before. He ended up just going back with my mom saying that they were going to work things out and he wasn't going to drink anymore. I thought "wow...maybe he really means it." I was wrong. My little sister left me an offline message 2 nights ago saying that the scenario had played itself out again and he was arrested and taken to the mental health unit. I talked to my mom and they were letting him out today...she is sending him up here to live with my grandparents. He is leaving tonight and will be here in the morning. I don't know what to do. I can't just deal with it either. I don't like my brother and sister around it but I have too much going on right now to even deal with him. I'm still in high school and I take college classes. With him here, he won't get any better because my grandparents still fail to see that they are the ones that made him this way. I'm glad he's away from my mom and brother and sister...but now closer to me (He'll be in the next room) And his parents (my grandparents) wil just cater to him and his addictions. He hasn't held a job in about 4 years and can't get one because of his mental problems... I am going to lose it.
