I have witnessed and felt the amazing power of prayer and I am once again asking for your help.
My younger sister Jennifer is in a very bad state. She has suffered from bulimia for almost 20 years. She is also bi-polar and schizophrenic. She is 88 pounds and is 5'7". She was recently hospitalized (she has been hospitalized numerous times) but she refused to eat or accept any medication so they released her today. If she doesn't get professional help she will surely die. There is no way for her to overcome these issues alone but she is so stubborn and insists on doing things her way. My prayer is for her to have enough clarity to accept professional help. There are many laws that protect her rights but these laws also make it impossible to save her. You can not force a person to eat. You can not administer medication without their consent. You can not hold a person in a medical facility unless they are an immediate danger to themselves or others. I think there is no question that she is a danger to herself but for some reason the medical system can't see this where she is. I can now understand that "crazy" homeless person on the corner. My sister will most likely be one of them. I don't know how this happened. We have no family history. I don't know where everything went wrong.
Thank you for adding her to your prayers - I have run out of options and this is all I can do.
