Well, here goes... I live with a step-sister who apparently has bipolar disorder according to her mother. She is 23 and I am 26. She never leaves the house, doesn't have a job, doesn't really do anything except sit on the internet all night long and then sleep during the day. I am really afraid for what is going to happen when our parents pass away (they are not in good health). Right now she is being supported by them, but I don't know where she will end up if they pass away. I should also throw out the fact that she seems to hate me for no reason - she hasn't spoken a word to me (not a single word) since about a year ago. It is kind of fucked and really messes with your head when someone won't speak a word to you who is supposed to be your sister. I really want to help her so badly but I can't because she won't talk to me. My parents do nothing to help the situation and pretty much just enable her to withdraw more and more from society. I don't know what to do. I don't want to sit here and watch her commit suicide in a few years or end up homeless... but I am starting to think it is my only option. Please help.
