My little sister has been struggling. A lot. It’s almost like she just has no control over her thoughts, her words, her movements. She’s scared and confused and I can’t help because I am too. I think she must be sick, but my parents won’t get her help, and she doesn’t even know where to begin. The things she does, I’m scared she’ll hurt herself. Maybe even kill herself. I try to help, but I feel as though there’s this gap between us that we can’t cross. It’s like we can’t communicate anymore.
