My father has been diagnosed with depression and often has aggressive episodes when he stops taking his prescribed medications. During these episodes, he berates and harasses our family and blames us for his needing to take pills to stabilize his mood. I feel as if on top of his depression, he may be bipolar. He is also a Marine veteran. He claims that getting my mother to work is incredibly difficult, that we (his children) are lazy and unmotivated, all while my mother works full weeks and us children take care of most all household chores including dinners, and he works three days a week and uses the rest of his time off to play video games in an "escape from his life". Oftentimes, such as recently, he takes away all of our outside connection - he changed all the passwords in the house, leaving me with no way of working on my homework at school and my mother no way to contact anyone outside of the house as our cell phones are turned off as well. I am 18, meaning I can legally leave at any time, but I have siblings and refuse to leave them behind with him during these episodes. Is there any way for us to get him the help he refuses to seek and is this common behavior or an act of something else? I admit I'm not intelligent in this field, but I would appreciate any help that anyone else can provide.
