Your worried big sister.

Posted by KAT92 on 31 March 2016.

Tonight you'll be spending your 3rd night in hospital. But this is not the 3rd night of which this poison runs through your vains. Mum took a picture last Friday for the Easter Weekend of me & our little sister. It truly was a good one, yet in that picture laid a whole other picture. It was missing you. I know you're not well right now, I know I will never make heads nor tails of why you do this. Sometimes I hate you so bad. But when mum rang me the other morning... The fear of God entered my body and I thought... This could be it, this could be the call. You're 21 this year, our grandfather turned 75 today. I cannot help but feel he will out live you. I don't know what to do, I've tried every possible way, but I've realised after so many years. I alone cannot help you, nor anyone in this world. Apart from you Titch. I know you think I'm the biggest snob in the world, but I am not ashamed of you, I do not shy away from being your big sister. So tonight as you lay in that hospital bed, please think of what life could be. I love you, I always will. K X 

I'm 23 my sister is 20. Heroin addict for the last 18 months... Drug addict a whole lot longer.

hi I know how helpless you feel as I do for my daughter  I have tried to help her over the last few years but I cannot get through to her she wont accept help from anyone as she feels there is no problem over the last year things have gone from bad to worse  you may have seen her in the papers ACID ATTACK VICTIM  and like you I wait that last call I am under treatment for  PTSD I don't sleep well   but I try to stay strong for the rest of the family  I hope your sister will listen to someone and accept help but until then stay strong and hope 
 that's all families can do

Thank you for sharing your story.

It seems there are few services and research done considering the experience of family members, in particular siblings. That is why I am conducting a research project looking at the narratives of siblings, encouraging others like you to share their experiences. If you wish to participate and share your story or would like more information please contact me at Thank you.
