So you have one disturbed individual (Bob) who is going to a shrink, telling another guy (Brian) that he will give him the name of his shrink so they can bond together. Isn't this kind of like the blind leading the blind? Bob, you're not helping Brian by feeding into his delusions. You're only making things worse. Support, yes, but to continue to feed his delusion that he can still be an effective county commissioner is just wrong.
I feel sorry for both these guys, they have serious heartache in their lives, but Brian is a county commissioner, who needs to be able to make stable and solid decisions because of his position. He is not able to do that at this point in his life. He needs to resign, go to Bob's shrink, and get his mental issues under control. He cannot effectively lead the citizens of New Hanover County.
