Default My little sister...

was born 13 years younger than me. My only sibling was born to my mother and step-father. She was a beautiful blond baby girl and I was a big part of her life until I turned 17 and moved out. My parents were not rich and the white trash way would be the best words to describe our life. My sister was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 6. It would be a big part of her life and also tear her body apart as she got older. She was a straight A student and was bound to go to college. When she turned 18 her lifestyle changed, she started running with the wrong crowd, got heavy into drugs and not keeping up on her insulin caused her to have huge gains and losses in weight which had bad affects on her 5 foot tall body. By the time she as 22 she has been arrested multiple times for shoplifting and drug possession. She served her first prison term at the age of 24. Her health was horrible, she needed a kidney by the time she was 25. I had went through all the testing to be a possible donor but her doctor said it would just be a waste of time. She had shunts placed in her body so they could do dialysis 2 times a week at the age of 26. She was in and out of prison 3 more times before she was 31. She had stolen from my parents and grandparent numerous times over the years and was forbidden to come near their homes. She was released on parole last December and was living in a half way house a hour away. I saw her last January for the first time in 3 years. She looked like a little old lady, hair falling out, missing teeth and her skin yellowed from missing her dialysis treaments. It made me cry when I left. She was found in her room Thursday night after missing her treatments earlier that day. She died alone and in despair just 2 months shy of the age of 33. RIP my little sister Shelly you are in a much better place now :cry:
