So my sister (for the forth time in 20 days) was admitted to 72 hours of psychiatric evaluation and then released.

I don't understand why no one can see she needs help and why no one will keep her long enough to see that she is not okay.

I don't know what else to do. My mom can't babysit her. She doesn't want to see me at all and I wanted to be able to give her that wish. But I just don't know what is possible anymore.

I am really completely out of ideas. If she doesn't want help I don't know how we can help her.

I'm starting to feel like the only other option is that next time she gets psychotic and agressive for my mom to press charges and have her arrested. But, I can't even see how that could come out good. Only in giving my mom a break from her.

This is all so fucked up beyond any kind of anything I have ever dealt with. I have two more days of work and then I am going home and I don't even know what I can do to help when I get there I just know that my mom has been going through this alone for over 20 days now and I can't let that continue.

I love my sister so much and I am so scared right now and so angry that the laws that are there to protect her are the ones that are keeping her from getting the help she so desperately needs.

I am very close to losing it myself. I feel like I've been screaming HELP so long my voice is gone...
