My brother is clearly sick when he’s the cold one

It took about three days before his immune system finally gave out and he fell ill

My family absolutely drives me insane more often than not. I love them more than anything but at the same time we have a lot of issues getting along. There are too many big personalities and steadfast opinions for everybody to live as one cohesive family unit. There are many times that we take breaks from each other because things have grown far too heated between us. One of the things that I’ve solutely drives me insane about every member of my family is their stubborn attitude about admitting when they need help. No one ever wants to acknowledge when they are in over their heads. This is especially true for my oldest brother who has to be the toughest, most Macho Man of them all. This is why it took a lot of convincing to make him sit down in front of the fireplace last month, absorb a little heat, and cool his head. You see, for several days we had been working hard to clean out our grandfather’s belongings in a nice cold house. It was definitely not a comfortable situation for anybody because the central heating and cooling system barely worked at modern standards. I was surprisingly warm as long as we kept moving in the chilly air. However, my older brother kept mentioning that he was freezing cold and trying to fiddle with the thermostat. Obviously, something was wrong when my big, meaty brother was too chilled. However, he wouldn’t admit it. It took about three days before his immune system finally gave out and he fell ill. From that point forward he complained about his hot and cold fluctuations for a solid week. These people drive me crazy.
