Does my sister have a psychological disorder? long

Posted by verano on July 3, 2001, at 20:31:42

Please help me understand my sister. Ever since I can remember, she has exhibited behaviors that have concerned me. She is an adult and is 6 years older than I. She struggled while in school and quite possibly has borderline intelligence, however, specific disabilities were never identified. Her social skills are definitely retarded. Our parents are no longer living but she still has never moved out on her own. Our mother was in denial that anything was wrong but it was obvious to everyone that there were issues. Now that my mother is gone, my sister does not clean up the house or take care of the yard or exterior. The house is filthy, food containers, dirty plates and papers everywhere. The bathrooms and kitchen are unsanitary. Her personal hygiene is also a concern. She is obese; does not comb her hair, brush her teeth, wear clean clothes nor does she take medication for her hypertension. She is very emotional and her anger is out of control when she feels as though she is being criticized. She always seeks out nurturing-types of people. She has a friend, now, for the first time I can ever remember and I am glad about that. She never had friends or dates growing up. As a child, she was very shy and hid behind our mother. Now as an adult, she talks all the time incessantly and her sense of humor is very juvenile. I am sometimes embarrassed for her. She isn't even slightly aware of how she appears to others. I wish I could understand what is wrong with her so I would know how to deal with her.
