WOW! That's a tough one. I am so sorry that things have not gotten any better for your brother. As for you having a relationship with him and not getting hurt, let's just say it will take alot of therapy. I am sure that he also is having trouble trusting anyone and has much anger. I'm no expert or anything, but having a relationship with him will take time. I mentioned therapy because in order to really bring a family together after someone has been incarcerated, can really help with the relationship process. Best of luck.
