I think it's great that you are supportive of your brother and a lot of people would be lucky if they had a sister like you. That said I feel that you are losing sight of whose journey this really is.

This isn't your journey, if your brother hadn't told you you probably wouldn't be here. There is nothing wrong with seeking out support for yourself, but don't lose sight of who this is really about your brother. He told you looking for support and because he needs you. Otherwise he would've had no incentive which is why he didn't tell you sooner.

It's ok to cry and be upset, but at the end of the day you were invited through him telling you that he is positive to join him on his journey. Reach out for support so you can support him, but make it about him.
