I'm back. I posed a question on here some time ago I think in the fall when I saw that my sister, who lives with my Mom, was starting to have anxiety attacks. I got a really disturbing phone call from her today and it turns out that for the past year or more she has been experiencing EXTREME paranoia and delusions, and neither my mother nor my sister told anyone. I called Sunday to wish her a happy mother's day and my mother LIED to me about where my sister was - said she had gone for a run 'or something' but was actually in the hospital since Saturday night after attempting to take an overdose. I've gone through a lot of emotions today, but now that my kids are asleep and it's quiet I'm alone with my thoughts. In my sister's mind, I'm the mastermind behind some kind of conspiracy to have her arrested so I can't go help her. I'm absolutely shocked, baffled, and confused as to why my mother wouldn't share this information with me!
When I first posted I was concerned about my sister's sanity, and now it's happened - I don't know if she has a sleep disorder, if she's Bi-Polar, if it's stress, if it's Schizophrenia, but instead of staying in the hospital, my mother went and picked her up because she was having delusions that the hospital staff were assisting police to orchestrate some kind of raid on the hospital to arrest her. So she's home now, and they are both telling me she's fine, but she is NOT fine! I think back to our family life, and look at my siblings and myself, and realize none of us escaped childhood unscathed. My mother won't even talk to me now (I think she's avoiding questions) but there are big questions - my sister is the only one who knows where my mother's will is. Who her doctor is. What medical issues she has. (my Mom and sister are VERY private) and I don't even have a house key. My stomach is literally hurting over all this, and the lax attitude everyone has towards it. I've got a mentally ill mother living with a mentally ill sister with 2 kids with autism. What am I supposed to do with this? Everyone I've talked to today has said there's nothing I can do unless she wants to go into care. As for my mother, she needs to downsize the g-damn house and all the crap in it because they can't keep it up and I'm convinced it's part of the reason my sister is getting so stressed out. So many things to think about, and I feel completely alone.
