Re: Sister Won't Talk to Me or Mom
Step away from the situation and allow time to settle things down. I would never tell you to give up on your Sister, or give up hope. Your Sister is obviously in pain, too. Has she ever been for a diagnosis of her mental condition or been to counseling? Medication?
Without knowing her side of the situation, I can't say she's not justified in her anger. She is fighting for something or because of something. If it is a mental disorder, then I would think there would be more certainty about that and her history from you. I kinda feel like you are suspecting that at this point.
Maybe she has a right to be jealous? I know my Mom always had a favorite daughter and if it had not been for my supportive relationship with my G'Mother, no telling where I would be today. This is not based on my "feelings", my siblings and am have always discussed it and agreed on all the details. Labeling it "favorites" is easiest, but I think it was just loving differently, as we were all different personalities.
Off track, sorry. Take time away, examine yourself and your mistakes. Try to figure out how your behavior has affected the situation and what you could possibly do different or better in the future. Define acceptable boundaries for the two of you. Mom is responsible for her relationship with Sis and that is between them. Totally different dynamics as you know.
Wishing you all the best!
