My sister is killing herself. She is an alcololic. Recently I let her move in with me but she is still maintaining her old lifestyle. She’s been married and divorced twice. The drinking does not stop.
We found her a job. She started July 1st. She lives in my home now but leaves on the weekends to stay with her “girlfriend”. Well her “girlfriend” has called my home and “she” is the guy she was living with a couple of hours drive from here. So now my sister is a drunk and a liar.
She called tonight to tell my wife she needed two weeks off to visit a friend who was dying in New York (total BS). We are in Florida. My wife got her the job at her company so this will pretty much make my wife look bad. This after less than a month on the job.
If you don’t know me but my wife and I are already bearing an incredibly heavy burden ourselves. This only adds to it.
How do we help her through our own pain?
How do you help someone who doesn’t want or think they need help?
