My Sisters nightmare
Posted by steelers on 11 June 2015.
I have a 60 YO sister who has a son that is a lifelong heroin addict. He has a rap sheet a mile long and is terrorizing my sister who isn't well. She lives in a senior apartment and every time he gets out of jail, he goes to her for a place to stay and preys on her guilt. He is 38 YO and threatens her, takes all of her money, and then cries that he wants help. Her landlord threatens to evict her and she is going crazy with stress. I live 800 miles from her and my siblings wont get involved. They hate my nephew for all of the obvious reasons and are jaded with her because she refuses to take the advice from any of us which includes calling the police or coming clean with the landlord, etc. Every time I call her she falls deeper into fear and depression. He will not leave, will not seek help even though he claims he wants it, and he keeps bullying her. She loves he son, but prays that he will get arrested or worse. What should she do next?
