My sister is 19, and was recently "let go" by my parents. For the past 6 yrs she has been in and out of drugs and alcohol, and is a compulsive liar. We think she's even lied to her psychiatrist, since she's still being prescribed heavy meds for depression, ADD, etc etc.
My parents have paid for her therapy, her rent, her EVERYTHING. And she has wasted it all.
Now they have officially kicked her out. I'm afraid for her, but she has caused so much pain to my family that I don't know how to forgive her, or help.
I want to call her and ask how she's doing, but I don't think she'd be receptive to that.
How do I deal with this? Is there anything I can do to help her?
How did you reach a bottom?
After everything she's done and been through, we just don't think she's bottomed out. My dad is a recovering alcoholic and used many drugs when he was young. I think this all hurts him the most. How do you help someone who doesn't want it?
She goes through the motions, saying and doing what you want her to do, but then as soon as things clear up, she goes right back to it.
