Jesus cock-punching christ.
If someone does the ďFine, youíre right, Iím clearly a terrible person, Iím Satan, Iím the worst person alive, I should just dieĒ thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Fuckin' christ. And I remember now, he sounds VERY ill.  :sad:

So now she's getting stuff in writing, hopefully overseen by a lawyer, to make things like kid visitation contingent on a psych evaluation.  She also told him she may stay if he sees a doc.  He countered it should be marriage counseling.  However they have tried that.  He went along with it during sessions, and then did fuck all after.

Also, semi-related to this bullshit, his mother is a jerk.  I know very few people that give off insta-jerk vibes, but she's one. She also thinks she's helping by going shopping for things for their house to surprise them, and then sending them a bill.  This included a new couch and a new tv.  Also she got shit-faced at a baby shower.  Who does that?  She's also in the medical field, just many wtfs.

Monsoon is lazy, quit after a lousy two weeks.

Which means we're all going to bake to death over the next 8 weeks.   :sad:

Ask to transfer to England.  I don't think it's been above 70F all month, since I got back.

It makes me think even when he's in his right mind all the lousy behaviors he got from her would shine through. 

The bonus about the tv incident is my sister got her own bank account so that he'd have to ask her for money whenever his mom started "helping" a bit too much.

Moss Side aside, Manchester is actually mostly nice these days.  They've even moved a number of government departments up there.  If the Civil Service weenies aren't drawing hazard pay, it can't be that bad.

So now she's getting stuff in writing, hopefully overseen by a lawyer, to make things like kid visitation contingent on a psych evaluation.  She also told him she may stay if he sees a doc.  He countered it should be marriage counseling.  However they have tried that.  He went along with it during sessions, and then did fuck all after.

Also, semi-related to this bullshit, his mother is a jerk.  I know very few people that give off insta-jerk vibes, but she's one.

Not only am I quite sure that your brother-in-law has Schizophrenia, or some variant, I would venture to guess that the mom has Bipolar symptoms that may not have been addressed. Making large, surprise purchases for people and then sending them the bill during a stressful time implies severely lacking Cognitive Empathy, which is common in Bipolar Disorder and related disorders. And considering the similarities in genetic predispositions to both Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia, it would increase the likelihood of either one having a disorder if the other were to be diagnosed.

Obviously this is just conjecture, but the blunt presentation of your brother-in-law's symptoms coupled with the very bizarre nature of his mother's behavior (Seriously, I've never even heard of someone doing that. Who the fuck does that?) makes it something worth looking into, IMO. Maybe evidence of a pre-existing condition in his mother, and proof of the similar genetic roots could convince him to do something about it? I wouldn't think so, but every argument counts in dire situations like that. Marriage is a pretty big deal.

Very interesting.  I'll bring this up with my sister, though it'll make her a bit worried about the kids and developing something of that nature.

If it helps, even severe mental health disorders like schizophrenia are affected by the environment and childhood development. Genes make you more susceptible, but they're not a guarantee of problems or the severity thereof.

Yeah, need to just point out that the kids need a more stable, less stressful environment.  They aren't getting that around him and his family.  If she's suddenly thinking about it on top of everything else.

All accents north of the M4 and south of Hadrians Wall are dumb sounding though.  Think about it:

Brummies? Fuck yes.
Mancunians? Yes.
Yorkshire? It's not the 19th century any more, so yes.
Liverpool? Absolutely.
Geordie? Ur-example of a stupid, incomprehensible accent.
Welsh? Don't even get me started.
