My husband's brother just moved in with us yesterday because he got put out of the place he was living in. He has a problem with following rules and he curses people out. He is 40 years old and has mental problems. He is schizophrenic, manic depressive, developmentally delayed, morbidly obese, and has high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. He's on a slew of medications. He can not live alone because he has the mind of a child. He has lived with everyone in his family and been put out for being disrespectful and not following rules. I have not been very fond of him ever since he cursed my mother out years ago. There is no one left that will take him so my husband has no choice. I understand that he has to take him in. He can't let him live on the streets, but I can't live with him forever! This situation feels hopeless and I don't see any other way but to leave.
I have issues with anyone living in our house with our family. My husband and I will be married 12 years tomorrow, together 14 1/2. We have 3 kids together ages 13, 11, and 10. It wouldn't be SO bad if it was temporary but it is permanent and I just can't see living this way for the rest of my life. I REALLY love my privacy and home is the only place on the planet that I am comfortable! If anyone stays in my house longer that a weekend, I can't stand it. I have social anxiety and I can deal with people for short periods of time only. Home is where I go to shut the world out and relax. I can't ever do that again if he is here. My husband is happy about the situation and I am miserable. I realize that he has no choice in the matter and there is nothing that can be done but I didn't sign up for this. I feel like I need to hide in my room all day. I think that we have just come to the end of our road together.
There are some problems with me leaving.
1. I would have to take my children from their comfortable home.
2. I am a SAHM and have no income of my own.
3. I don't have anywhere else to go.
Does anyone have any advice for me please?
