    Thank you everybody for your comments and support. Thank God she doesn't have the M.S. badly. I try to have lots of understanding because it was soo scary to hear that diagnoses.
    I think she is a very brave person, it is just sometimes I need to vent. We are a very close family. I guess sometimes we are too close. I'd rather have that the opposite.

    My mom had ms....i believe she was diagnosed when i was around 7 or 8 (now 23). Eventually she got on a drug called Beta-Seron (shots every other day at home). She was sick on and off...refused to go to the dr...once she finally went her lung cancer was so advanced she has something like 20 or 30% of her lung capacity left...she died 4 months later. I highly sugguest you don't give her the option, make and apt for her and take her. Tell her it's for her daughters good. If she really is sick, or worried about cancer she owes it to her daughter not to give up because she's tired or whatever. Trust me, i was one of those daugthers. It'll 10 years ago i lost her this February.

    My mom has had high bp for yrs and never would take her meds just drink her wine and barely eat.
    Then once a yr ago she woke up with foam coming out of her mouth,left eye closing,a long red line down her left arm and a twisted mouth. She didn't go and it kept happening every now and then.
    Two weeks ago she woke up the same way but her mind was distorted. She went into the emergency room and her pressure was 260/104. They told her she has had several strokes(mini) due to her mri and ct scan. She's taking the meds but she can still barely function.Please tell your sis to stop being selfish because if she doesn't care there are alot of people who love her that do :heartpump:

    I feel for you! I've had lots of people in my life like this, some so harmful I've had to completely distance myself from them. My two cents for what it's worth - Just because your sister is sick, doesn't mean she can completely take over your life. You might have to be honest and tell her something like: "Sister, I love you but when you talk about your illnesses all the time it is really draining on me. Sometimes it seems like you make a bigger deal out of things than they really are. If it's that bad, go to the Doctor and/or a Counselor to vent and check it out for sure! Otherwise I don't want to listen to it all the time. Nothing personal, just trying to keep a balanced life". I hope that doesn't sound harsh, but you deserve your own comfor too. Good luck!!!

    My sister can be very draining. She was diagnoised with M.S. 10 years ago after the birth of her only daughter. She is also is divorced so she has doesn't have any support from her ex. But she has my parents and me for that. So here the thing she thinks she is always sick like with cancer (God forbid). Now ahe isn't feeling well like a cold so I tell her to go to the DRS. she says no maybe tomorrow.

    I just needed to vent.
    Does anyone have someone in their lives like this?
