First, it was Christmas that was taken; now it’s my birthday. My brother is literally making my life hell. I talk to him to try and get professional help to help fix our situation, and he refuses. So what can I f***ing do? F*** my birthday. F*** it all.

Is it not normal for siblings to have banter between themselves? I’ve honestly never seen the jokes that we do a big deal. ‘It’s just friendly banter between brothers. I would’ve loved for you to tell me personally how you felt about these videos or the banter between us, he added, addressing his brother. If I knew it was a serious issue for you, I would’ve stopped.
