My older sister has been taking this awful drug (Amphetamine) for so long now I even doubt myself as to weather I’m right sometimes. I think she may go through stages of not having it due to money obstacles.
She has recently put on a lot of weight so naturally i assumed she was no longer taking it and i loved having her around, but now it is blatantly obvious that she is doing that cycle of days and nights awake, then shutting herself away for the come down which takes weeks, saying she is ill or depressed which is every other week, or just ignoring the phone even when she is needed or I’m worried about her.
In the last few weeks I’ve been doing my own head in about how to approach her about it and after many sleepless nights (erm… i don’t take that evil stuff by the way! I used to when i was a teenager but it put me in hospital through psychosis so naturally i hate the stuff and know all the signs and symptoms and have not touched it since).
I have come to the conclusion that she is 43 in a few months and if i was able to make her admit and listen to me, it would all be gone and forgotten as soon as she walks out of the door.
However i don’t want to cut contact with her. I sent her a message last night and if she is clever she will realise that I’m not thick and that I’m still here if she needs me, but i don’t like being made a fool out of by her lies!
I need advice as when i was 25 i tried to speak to her and got a slap in the face, she has since opened up a bit over the years but she is still in denial if she thinks the family don’t see what she is doing.
