My heart goes out to Brian's mom and dad. I know first hand the trauma, terror and tragedy of bipolar and schizophrenia. My husband developed it in his early 20's. It is a "fatal disease" resulting in his suicide after years and years of $$$$ psychiatrists (the best) electro-shock therapy and many many drug therapies. It was horrific for him. He ended his life in 1995 after suffering tremendous mental horror brought on by his own illness for 14 years. After months of anguish after his death, we now know he is at peace with God. Mental illness is a monster. Brian, I am sure, tried is best to live.
