My brother’s girlfriend wants to leave him and I worry for his mental health

MENTAL STRUGGLE

DEAR DEIDRE: I’M worried my brother is about to lose everything – his girlfriend, his job and his mental health.

He has always had obsessive tendencies and would agonise over insignificant things.

My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.

He is now 41, three years older than me.

He’s always struggled to make friends and never had a proper relationship until he met his current girlfriend.

But now even she is on the brink of leaving. He has completely let himself go and has put on a lot of weight.

She has asked me for help, she is so worried about him.

Apparently, he has been given two warnings from his boss for incomplete work.

DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds as if your brother has been suffering with a mental illness.

If he has never been referred for specialist diagnosis, this is certainly worth doing now. You could offer to go with him.

A lot more is understood now about conditions and I wonder if the possibility of autism or Asperger syndrome has ever been mentioned.

You can get help from the National Autistic Society (autism.org.uk or call 0808 800 4104).
