Hi! I'm Nikka Torres, Christian's sister. I'm working in Dubai, UAE to support my family and my younger brother. Christian is a 21 years old boy with Mental Disorder. He's having Bipolar Disorder since year 2016.
Writing this is not easy for me.Last September 2016, he was diagnosed with Manic Bipolar Disorder and we are able to send him for the therapy with Psychiatrist for about 6 months and his medication cost around 12,000 pesos a month only for all his medicine. Christian gain to being normal after his six months of therapy with the Psychiatrist and also with the help of our friends and family. During that stage, he lost his self-confidence and stopped his study because of his condition.
And last October 2017, Christian's illness started again. He became worse than we could ever imagine. He tried to get suicide around 3 am in the morning. We sent him immediately to Mental Hospital for checkup and now he was diagnosed again with Bipolar Disorder but now with Depression and anxiety. I thought after the checkup, Christian can go now to our house but then after the checkup, the Psychiatrist told us that Christian will stay in the Mental Hospital for observation. His hands and feet are tied in bed with no mattress or any pillow in the mental hospital. The Doctor advised us that Christian needs a new environment away from all the cause of his disorder so I get them one bedroom Apartment which cost 5,500 pesos in order for Christian's healing. Up to now, Christian still taking medication for his BD. I'm the only one who supports my mother and Christian since my father passed away due to heart attack. My brother and my sister have their own family so they are not able to help me with the financial. And some of our relatives are afraid that Christian might hurt them physically. I'm so hurt the way I see Christian's condition. Not only financially, but emotionally.
Honestly I badly need help for Christian's battle with his disorder. Until now, I'm paying for their flat and also Christian's medical bills and for his treatment.
So here I am asking for a little help from my friends and family. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for giving whatever you can to help me get through this difficult time to help also my brother Christian.
