My cousin and i have grown up together and are very close until recently. Sadly 2 years ago she found out she had cancer 9 she is cancer free now and her husband also left her a few months before she found out. Since then she has became homeless and is now living with a second guy, the 1st one she moved in with got a restarining order on her for emailing, sitting in front of his house ( she claims its not true. She has 2 boys who are acting out because of the craziness I am guessing. She wont work because she thinks she cant anymore because she has chronic pain. She begged me for money because she said her mom wouldnt help only to find out after talking with my aunt that she did give her 300. I want to just point out all the messed up things she is doing but maybe I should just say nothing and be there for her. I know she will just say what she always says I didnt ask for cancer.

Maybe you should sit down and have a real serious talk with her, let her know what you've noticed and how it's affecting you and your family. Try to do it in a helpful non confrontational way and let her know that you're here to help. If things don't change maybe you can distance yourself from her, but at least you'll know that you did all you could first.
