I have a sister who has been abusing drugs on and off for years, and has always been very manic. She recently lost custody of her two children due to her behavior, and has been committed at least a few times.
Some time ago she moved back in with our mom. And I got a little info here and there on my sister's behavior. Recently, I decided I wanted to save some money and move in with my mom short-term and expressed my concerns about my sister. My mom said she was good and doing better.
Wow...was she wrong.
It seems from the last time I was around my sister she has gotten much worse. And I really regret the decision to move here (yes, I'm going to leave as soon as I can). But what really strikes me is the verbal abuse she gives our mom. She also steals things to sells them on the streets. My second day there I was able to record some video of her flipping out on me and our mom because I wouldn't give her money. I think my sister needs professional help. My mom thinks she is helping her, but I also have another brother here for over many years and he has not gotten any better (but he at least stays in his room and doesn't communicate with anyone).
Everyone that has visited the home is worried how bad she is. But they don't even have a clue as to what is really going on. My mom cannot stand up for herself.
My mom is still rational...except when it comes to family (which I understand), but she really needs to get her out of this house because it will get worse. I had no idea how bad it was until I moved here, and within the same day I knew this was going to be a really dangerous ride.
I believe my mom does want to do something but can't get herself to do it. Nor does she know exactly what to do. Is there anything we can do to initiate something? She needs to be in a professional environment before she hurts our mom.
