Basically, I used to go to supermarkets and so on with my younger sister, who lives with a condition known as FND. We even went to a pool hall sometimes, or she would be an extra in a film alongside myself. In general, we got on quite well together.

However, I noticed she began acting in a rather bizarre way during the last few years at least, suggesting that total strangers were following her in town, monitoring the house and her web activity, and somehow knowing when her appointments were, and so on. She also used to record videos of random people walking about in parking lots, or whatever. Or she would throw tantrums and behave in a hostile way when she was feeling agitated.

She went through a long custody battle with her ex, and lost her first two sons via a court. Then she met some guy, rambled on about her woes, and fell pregnant to him. He seemingly had a PTSD issue from being a soldier in Europe, and was consuming alcohol a lot, then allegedly physically harming my sister.

The social workers basically hounded her at the hospital in October of last year, right after she delivered her baby. They took her third son away to be with carers the next Monday, following a meeting where they went over their next step. She was not even permitted to exit the premises.

She has been acting very skitzo for ages now. But after our mum died, she got worse. Our mum passed away under horrible circumstances as well, which was a few months ago. The people in the hospice she attended pulled out her lines and a delay in receiving dialysis caused toxins to compromise her system. She passed away on the 9th of September, which is the birthday for two of my sisters - although they were born in different years. The hospital terminated my mum's treatment, just like that. Stupid buggers.

Anyway, the day before the funeral was to take place following a special service in the chapel situated in the parlour, my sister was supposed to meet me at a shop not far from the parlour.

This is a shop that is a mere 5 minutes away. It sells shirts, so I desired to get mum a Bruce Lee shirt to put in her coffin, as she always loved martial arts movies. But either my sister forgot about it, or she was being awkward on purpose. She just headed to the parlour. I told her I was annoyed, but she threw a strange wobbly and hung up on me.

Then on the day of the memorial service which was actually the following day, she began texting me nasty crap at 3 in the morning when I had to be up early. I put my foot down due to her bad attitude. Then she amped up the horrid wordings, threatening to ban me from the funeral and also claiming our arse of a dad agreed with her.

Weeks ago, she threw another hissy fit, lied about a PS2 game I sold in a pawn shop being her copy, and claimed I contacted a legal firm in Edinburgh to sabotage her gaining a lawyer, which was particularly odd. That is absolutely false, but yeah. I think she has turned into a right proper screwball.

What do you think? Was I right to cut her off? I mean, we were meant to avenge our mother's tragic death, but it seems she has chosen to go all crazy on my butt, rendering this goal of ours near enough impossible now.

Thank you.

I don't believe social services want to give me any help. So I was kind of relying on my sister for support, to go shopping, attend important meetings, and whatnot.

But of course, she has to let her demons overwhelm her emotions. If she's gonna behave like that, it's best I just keep away from her, or people like her.

I think your sis needs psychiatric help. There might be grounds to have her committed. I'm sure that is a very difficult position for you to be in. You have to make sure you take care of & protect yourself too thou & that means having some firm boundaries.
