Percocet took over my sister

by Anonymous

I have been dealing with anxiety and stress due to my sister’s illness.

I have paid for rehab, paid to have her electricity turned back on, paid for her son’s college and given her money.

She stole my driver’s license and health insurance card to get pain pills and I no longer trust her. She is calling me now for money and guilts me every time.

She has a sense of entitlement and has finally hit rock bottom with me.

I am depressed now and cannot continue to support her. I feel that I have done what I can to help.

I need to focus on myself now and I can’t since she wont stop calling me for money.

I wish you both the best..

Hi Sweetie,

I totaly understand what your going through,
I really do...
You have done more than enough for your sister,
so do not feel guilty to stop been her ATM.

She'll need to fall hard (alone) to
realize her mistakes & make a change.
All you can really do is listen and
give her the right advice as she climbs back
to get her life running on the right track.
All the best to you and your sister...
May God watch over the both of you...

Guilt is the Worst
by: Alain

Guilt is a terrible thing, but you can't allow her to drive you to depression -- and bankruptcy.

Addicts are selfish, ungrateful people. I get help from going to Al-Anon. You need strength not to be manipulated. Hang in there!!
