Dawn Ferencak,

Your article about your sister’s problems hit home. My brother had mental problems that caused him to act out and eventually shorten his life. 

What you have to realize is that your sister’s behavior was the result of forces beyond her control. That’s hard to live with, but it would ultimately help you see her life in a prospective that can help you move on without bitterness and resentment.  I am sure the problems your sister had she regretted.
