My cousin’s roommate texted me her address today and pretty much indirectly begged me to come over and talk to her. She said my cousin reminds her of a place she was i right before she got admitted to rehab–and she doesn’t want her down that path. I guess she turned to me because she trusts me to make the right decision. Today my cousin is joining in her money with some other people she knows (they aren’t really friends) to bail her abusive boyfriend out of jail.
I need to not indicate to my cousin that I know all of this so I’m just going over there to tell her that I don’t know why she’s pushing me out of her life but she is my sister and her telling me to just leave her alone isn’t going to make me forget about her.
I’m nervous to talk to her because I’m worried that she’s going to flip her lid that I’m over there. But I’m worried if I don’t try talking to her today I’m not only going to disappoint my only help into this but I will let myself down because I feel like I’m my sisters keeper. I have everyone looking at me to help. Please, if you have a moment just send your prayers/good thoughts this way. I’m nervous and I’m leaving in a few minutes.

@SweetRose2011: *hugs* I totally understand why you have to try to get through to her. I send my best wishes that she listens…that the surprise and shock of seeing you will unerve her enough to question the gravity of the situation, and that she will listen to you.

Good luck. Remember, the only thing that can be asked of you is that you do the best you can. After that, whatever happens happens. Someone very close to me went into detox yesterday (then will go to rehab afterwards) and it’s been hard on me, but I know it is for the best. I hope things go well with your cousin, and realize that if she gets mad at you for being there, it is not your fault– it is because she knows that what she is doing is wrong. We’re here for you– keep us posted.
