    My Sister the Meth Addict

    My sister was/is an addict of speed for three years. A few weeks ago she drove up from California after 6 years of not seeing her. I knew that she was using but I didn't realize how bad it had gotten till I saw her. The last time I saw her she seemed happy, confident, she was active and fit she was honest and even though she is my sister she was my very best friend. The day she arrived I almost shit myself she was losing her beautiful hair it is now bleached and strangely looking, extremely overweight (I thought this crap makes you lose weight?) She has huge scars on her face and infected blisters around her cheeks, and most of all her personality changed. She is now mean and moody, very jumpy, critical; she has stolen from me, criticized me and everyone in my family for whatever reason I don't know. She is 42 years old, no job, does not have custody of her three children and begs both my 70 year old parents for money all the time. I love my sister, but it sure is scary seeing what this stuff does to you after a period of time. I thank god for guiding me in the right direction every day and I'm thankful that I have a great life, wonderful husband and a beautiful healthy daughter. Doing drugs not only will kill you but it also kills the people who love them. I'm crushed at who she has become, and I'm mad at her that speed has taken the person that I knew away.
