Sherrycat, if there is one thing you should know by now, it is that your brother is no source of refuge for you and that it is wrong to feel any sort of security with him. I believe you should share with your psychiatrist at once this "strange sense of security" you have with him "especially now my bf left me". Those two thoughts should have nothing to do with each other. Your brother is no substitute whatsoever for any kind of real loving relationship, whether lost or not, and I greatly fear that feeling "security" with your brother may well prove be fatal for you. Please speak to your doctor about these feelings, as well as what happened this morning, without delay. I believe you must take action against your brother, with the proper authorities, before it is too late. I fear that if you leave things to your own judgment, I don't even want to say. Please take the necessary action, NOW, if only to prevent you from harming yourself through interacting with him, which I fear you will continue to do if you don't actively prevent yourself from doing so by reporting his crimes to the authorities.
