Hey Centrum,

Your cousin is responsible for his own choices.  Nobody else can be held accountable for the actions he chooses to take with his own life.  One day maybe he'll be able to realize that. 

That said, people who are diagnosed with mental illnesses (don't know if your cousin is or not, but you said he was on meds) sometimes have a hard time functioning in their lives.  I can tell you that merely taking a few pills for a mental ailment, fictional or otherwise, does not automatically make you a productive member of society.  Many times, just the opposite what with side effects and all. 

Anyway, to my point.  It definately sounds like your cousin has some issues, but if the time comes where you are forced to make a decision to "take care" of him or not, you should do what is best for you.  You should not "take care of him" merely on virtue of him being your family, particularly since he is well passed the age when he should begin taking responsibility for himself. 

Who knows, maybe if he is forced to take responsibility one day, he will. 

good luck  :heart:

::nods in agreement::

and the meth use sounds like it may be one of the side effects of his condition, not his whole problem. If he's too mentally unstable to hold a job, he has to choose how to spend his days. Just seems he's chosen the wrong ways.

As far as who will take care of him, he may be getting a 'crazy check' by then.

"Everybody seems to think I?m lazy.
I don?t mind, I think they?re crazy"

He sounds exactly like me. But I don't smoke meth... only weed occasionally. I can't handle the real world. I have a few mental disorders. I think the meds I'm on actually make me more lazy and apethetic. I'm going off of them in two days though. I'm being kicked out of the house soon anyway because I'm about to turn 21. Lighten up on him. This society reinforces the behavior to do stuff all of the time and be productive and I think it's bullshit.

You sound kinda pissed at your cousin, your calling him names and making him sound completely worthless, maybe your part of his "problems". I don't know much about mental illness, but I'm guessing that being around negativity and hostility such as yours doen't help at all. I'd suggest you just stay away from your cousin, it would probabely be the best thing for both of you. But if you do want to help him, you gotta start by changing your attitude.

yea, it sucks havin to live around folks against your will.
they'rs a few people that stay here that i would really rather be gone, but theres not a damb thing you or i can do about it, cuz its not our house.
the best thing you can do is steer clear of him as much as possible. Thats what i do. don't even talk to him, and if he does something to offend you. Tell him off.
Just try not to let it turn into an episode of Cops.
