My sister is in a horrible relationship. Her thing she is with has been physically abusive to her, has cheated on her, and is using and selling drugs.
For years we have barely heard from her until recently she has been coming to us for help. Last night she came to my house because she had left him. I thought she was serious she had ALL her stuff. Well this morning we were out of toilet paper, I gave her directions to the store and she left and didn't come back. Just when I was going to pull my hair out with worry, she called and said they were getting back together.
She didn't want to tell me because she thought I would be mad. I told her I was, but at the situation and not her. I told her I thought it was the wrong decision. then I told her that I needed to hear from her at least once a week or I was going to think something was wrong and I would call the cops.
So did I do the right thing? Or should I just give up?

I'm sorry, but the police need to get involved. You can bash me all you want, but if this man goes to jail for drugs, it might just be the break she needs. She also needs a place for abused women. You can call your local police station, tell them the situation and they can refer you someone who can help. DO NOT GIVE UP ON HER!! You might be the only link to her staying alive. This man is abusive and could kill her at any moment. She has it in her brain that she needs him to survive. He has beaten this idea into her head. She needs someone to be there to help her get away. She will also need years of counseling to relearn that this is not "normal" behavior and it is not okay that anyone hits her. Good luck.
