My sister is stupid, I do not mean retarded. To be retarded is a medical conditon cause by illness, injury, birth defect, etc If she were retarded, I'd welcome her unconditionally. My sister is stupid. She will do the wrong thing for six hours rather than doing it right once because she wants me to do it. We're talking washing dishes or ironing, not brain surgery.
At one point Sister decided I could raise her children while she made more babies. It took me eight months to get social services attention. I had agreed to babysit for eight hours. She took all my clothes, including my underwear so I couldn't leave.
Sister has anorexia and will likely die if she doesn't gain weight, but she wants people to feel sorry for her and they'll help her get a job, (she's told me this) I have friends who are mental healh professionals, who can force her into treatment.
I did tell my sister that if she came to live with me, I would be her legal guardian, I won't do it under any other circumstances.
I am concerned that Sister will try to coerse my kids into stuff they don't want to do, that's what she's always done to me. My oldest daughter would at least dope slap sister, my youngest is a foster and may be afraid of her. Or, more likely, she'll steal from them. Sister could probably wear my youngest daughters clothes. I would stipulate that she label her clothes with her name, and she'll not be allowed to wear any others, but I know her.
Anyone else have a sibling like that?
