Bad news bears

Guys, the situation with my baby sister has deteriorated. It's no longer about her being in college - that's her decision to make, and I got some good perspectives on it from readers.

But it's more than that now. Something is very, very wrong. Last night she told my oldest sister that she needed to take a walk. While she was on said walk, her boyfriend's mother picked her up at the end of the road. They went back to her boyfriend's house,where she is now staying. She will not answer her phone and when my mother and sister went to talk to her, no one would answer the door. I've called her a few times today and she hasn't answered.

From what I've gathered, her behavior is pointing to some mental-health issues. There's nothing anyone can do, because while my sister is a baby to me she's legally an adult. I don't know what the fuck her boyfriend's mother is thinking, but damn that is a shady move to pull on a fellow parent.

This is such a fucking mess. I know she isn't thinking rationally right now and as someone who's been there, done that, I want to help her. But I can't if she won't talk to any of us.

Wow, I'm really sorry to hear that. How long has she been with this boyfriend, have there been concerns about him in the past? Hopefully his mother will start being more cooperative and this will start to resolve...I know it is very hard to feel out of control in a situation where a loved one is in trouble. You and your family are definitely in my thoughts.

That sounds scary Lisa:( and sounds really like something mental health related. Hopefully it's just some harmless reaction on the college-stress and big changes. I hope you all will soon figure out what's going on and help your sister. Could you ask your younger sister or some close friends about changes in her mood or behavior?
I hope things are getting better right now...
