Help. My BIL is going crazy. Something is happening to him. He's losing his mind and I keep trying to get my SIL to see that her husband is not right and getting worse. He is 50 years old and when anyone is around him he talks non stop. He rambles on and on and you can't get a word in edgewise. He follows you around and will even stand outside the bathroom door to continue his conversation. His version of religion and politics is getting weirder and weirder and he believes he may be THE answer to problems if only people would listen to his advice. He has started playing the guitar and will sit up till 2 AM and play as loud as the amplifier can go. He thinks that his "talent" is so rare that everyone really enjoys hearing his incredible music. It is usually unbearable nonsense and I can't believe that none of the neighbors have called the police yet. He keeps bringing cats home that he has found. I've never known anyone to "find" so many cats. I'm concerned he is taking people's pets. There are so many other things that he is doing that I can't list them all.
Mental illness runs in his family and I think he is definitely showing signs of something. His wife just ignores him and seems to just shrug off his latest behavior as just "you know how he is..." Is there any way to help them?
