Later they turned to anger. He was also exhausted when he had once been full of energy. Things worsened to where nobody could stand to be around this once popular teen. His personality changed to the complete opposite of before. Through some tests, he found out that he had a brain tumor that was causing the change in his personality and emotions. This brain tumor caused his mental disorder.
