Hello, I am new here. I thought maybe this place could give me a little bit of help, as well as my counsellor. I am 25, female, and it seems like my sister, who is older and has a child now has always been the favourite. It bothered me before, but I wasn't away from home then to see it more clearly. My family just thought I was going through a teen stage and lashing out. It still happens though, and more so since my neice was born. I don't blame her or resent her, I need to get that clear first. My Dad doesn't reallt talk on the phone much so I don't expect to hear from him much, but my Mom talks to my sis everyday! I moved out because of too much drinking and fighting and now have lived with my fiance's grandmother for 2 years as we try to save for a place of our own. Now all of this wouldn't be too bad if I ever heard from my family. My sister lives out of town and they visit her and I am in the same town! I can count on one hand how many times they have been to my house. And it's not once been for a visit, alwys just to pick something up or drop something off. They don't call me pretty much unless they want something or because I finally blow up and they feel bad. I am tired of the endless cycle, it's self destructive, but I just don't know what to do anymore! I have tried everything with them....Anyone have any advice?? Sorry this is so long..but this is just the jist of things:(
