    My Sister Is Going To Die

    For years now, my sister, who is in her late 50's, has been addicted to pills. Ambien, anxiety medication, antidepressants, etc. Her life, for years, has been troubled to say the least. Her kids are in and out of prison, she has a son in prison for murdering his 9 week old baby, she is raising grandchildren who also are in trouble with the law and are having babies. It goes on and on. She has made several attempts on her life, she has burnt all personal items, photos etc., she told her daughter, who is another story, that she was recording her death message and she has told me and my other sister that she doesn't want to live. She says it's to painful and she just doesn't want to live, she hopes she doesn't wake up. She stays in bed all the time and talks like she is almost in slow motion. Her husband is not in the best of health and won't have her put in a hospital to help her. I'm not sure why exactly. I know she has told him NOT to interfere and she has told me and my other sister the same thing. We haven't listened and we have done everything we can to help. The story is to long and depressing to write. Social Services have stepped in and have told her, she is not allowed to be alone with her grandchildren, she is just not capable or responsible enough to be left in charge of children. That of course has change their lives and now have made things even more difficult, if that is possible. My younger sister and I KNOW that we are going to get the call that my sister has died. Please help. Thank You. I don't have much hope of your responding to this, but, I wrote it anyway.....Carolann
    PS I didn't really understand the significance of, # 2, so I just sent the first picture of me that I could find. I'm sure that is not what you wanted, but, I didn't know what else to do.
