I am DONE.

Gaaaaaaah. Had a lovely visit with my mom and my brother over Labor Day. He was funny and friendly and nice, and we were getting along... and now I just realized that he's dumped me off Facebook again (I only noticed because today is his birthday, and I didn't get the usual reminder) and he hasn't answered my emails in the past month. I don't know what I did to piss in his Cheerios this time, and I do not fucking care. I blocked him on Facebook, I am not answering if he calls, and I won't read his emails. Fuck him, and fuck this bullshit. I have been NOTHING but nice to him, I do not deserve this passive-aggressive shit.

Now, how to talk to my mom about it... she became estranged from her sisters decades ago. She is brokenhearted at the thought of my brother and I not having a relationship. I cannot talk to her about this, it tears her apart. She knows how he is, but she can't accept that I can't keep dealing with this crap. Not just can't, I won't. I am done with this.

I don't know enough about your brother to say, but it does seem that he gets into these...episodes? Cycles? Where he drops contact and gets a little crazy about his relationship with you. You may be done, and that's perfectly valid, but would it be a possibility to just ignore him when he's like this, and enjoy him when he's more...sane (for lack of a better term)?

I know you love your brother, and it kills you to be hurt by him, but I honestly don't know how much he can help being such an asshole at these times, because he always seems to snap out of it, so I wonder if it's a mental health issue that you could deal with it as such? Even if not, it may allow you to keep a relationship with your only sibling without losing your sanity.
