Our expert says:
It's very understandable that you were concerned about your brother's illness, and wanted to comfort him ; it doesn't sound as though you had anything to do with the creation of his problems, and you shouldnt blame yourself Encourage your brother to discuss any of these concerns which he may have, with his doc and therapists.
I find it hard to believe that any docor was listening in on your conversation with your brother, or that he told him to hang up because of something you were saying - I'd guess it's far more likely that he was concerned about the length and cost of the call, if you are in another country, and it was probably a special privilege to have helped your brother make o take such a call at all.
Don't apologise to the other brother, and stop blaming yourself. Let your brother's doctors work with him. They can contact you if they need any further help or information.
Depression happens, indeed it's quite common, and its usually nobody's fault. And its also common that people who try to be helpful might not be as effectively helpful as they hope. Relax, and see how they are able to help him
