I have a sister

8.25.2009

I have a sister...She is my big sister by six years. I don't talk about her much, for her story is very sad...Her whole life has revolved around a toilet and a scale. My sister is bulimic and anorexic and the toll this disorder has ravaged upon her body is about to be paid. She is now laying in a hospital bed breathing her last breaths. Her kidneys gave out long ago, so dialysis was a routine in her life. Her teeth rotted from her mouth, so false ones needed to be created. Her muscles deteriorated so she is unable to walk. Since I was a teen, this has been all I remember of my sister.

Family dynamics are difficult. I dread the days to come...

My prayer: Jesus...Draw me ever nearer...
