Thinking of My Sister


It has been fifteen years since I last saw my sister. I miss her terribly. I am also frightened to be in contact with her. She is schizophrenic and unmedicated.

Today is her birthday. Happy Birthday Leah. I love you.

This makes me so grateful for the closeness of my 3 sisters and I, and sad, because I too have a sister who is in turmoil across the country. I do not know how she is. I do not know if she is ok. She has been in contact and says she is homesick and needing to come home, but she has said that before. Prayers for you, sister Leah and my sister, Susie! I really enjoy your blog!

I don't have a sister - I've got 3 brothers. Sometimes I feel like i've missed out on something wonderful.

How sad for you!

All things have a reason...
i had a similar situation with my dad and it tormented me for years and when he died unexpectedly i was devastated... i always thought, perhaps if i had tried harder? But eventually i came to terms with the fact that everything has a reason...

And yet my advice would still be to you to reach out while you still can.

(((hugs))) to my bloggy sista <3

Your courage is overwhelming and I sort of have a fleeting feeling of how your heart is torn with your loving devotion to a treasured sister and the fear of the unknown path this mental arena has driven your sister...loss and love sometimes go hand in hand. I wish you healing white light to carry your spirit to the new morning's daylight. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Thank you for all the loving comments. I didn't say, but I have had contact with my sister since her sickness. We have spoken (she is in the States and I am in Australia), but it is often painful and confusing.

I have a sister I am not close to although I would like to be.
Maybe our sisters need us.
Sending you positive energy and many blessings.
