I worry about my future

So it’s official, my brothers girlfriend diagnosed him as a Narcissist.
I’ve known this about him for like 6 years now.

To be honest I’m scared to death.

He will be in charge of my finances when my father passes.

I worry about my future with him.

He lacks empathy and has violent tendencies.

Like most Narcissists he displays jealous tendencies and resents his life with me.

Am I doomed?

Will he care enough to help me out if needed?

I am doubting this.

My bother will be my trustee.
My father set up a Special Needs Trust Fund for me years ago.

I am not sure 1555

Can you talk to a lawyer about having that changed?

If your SSA benefits are being disbursed to someone on your behalf, you can contact Social Security and ask they assign your funds to an organization that handles funds for people incapable of managing their finances. That would be an end-around to avoid your money falling into the hands of your brother.

My father has to change it legally and he won’t do it.

But the positive thing is my brother doesn’t need more money.

He is wealthy.

You can always contest it after he passes.

Yes and two of my cousins were selected as trustees if anything should happen to my brother.

Are they better options than your brother?

My brother is very good with finances but I don’t know how trustworthy he is.

I’m worried about his Narcissism

Just make some money to belong to you legally, dont go my steps.
Never thought I’ll be in this position I am now.

I gave him half of mothers flat, and he through me out.
This place I live in was rented, so I had enough, but he turn against me and I had no legal rights to stay in late mothers flat.
Never gave me dime in all this years…

Oh I’m sorry @zoa
I have a feeling that my brother will set me up to live on my own or with roommates but not get involved in my life otherwise.

I get this sense from my family sometimes as well. I have a brain injury, which no one in my family wants to recognize. Only my one sister has mentioned schizophrenia, the rest just don’t say anything

Wave, its hard to live alone.
You could have a stroke and die, and theres no one to notice.
I choked today, water came to lungs.
Couldnt breathe, but kept calm.
Today I had no calls, and decided I had enough.
From tonight, phone is on silent, and I answer to nobody…
