Unfortunate and Completely Unexpected

This evening, I got a call from an unknown number. It was from the county jail in my hometown. My little brother was on the other end. He woke on the cold floor of a cell with cuts apparently all over his body. He didn't remember anything. He has been having issues with alcohol consumption. He wanted to my advice and also to see if I could reach my sister for bail.

I talked to my sister, and she called the jail to find out more. He apparently may be charged with atttempted murder. He attacked someone in his apartment building while very inebriated. He had a knife. That's all I really know, other than the person attacked is apparently okay.

I wish I was talking about my slightly interesting trip to the dentist or my thoughts on getting a day lamp, as my SAD is a bit more problematic than other years. Instead, I am wondering what to do in this situation. I suppose that there is very little that I can do, but that isn't going to slow down my brain much.

I'm hoping that he may be able to get a temporary insanity ruling. He has been diagnosed with PTSD over difficulties with my mother's death. Perhaps this will help lend to this. That wasy, he would be institutionalized. There, he could get some much-needed therapy and rehabilitation.

Anyway, leave a comment if you wish. Later.
