Worst weekend ever, can't stop crying

Several months ago my brother stole and sold all of my mother's jewelry to support his drug habit. My parents confronted him and he agreed to go through a drug cessation program. Not rehab, but a prescription substitute. It was nowhere near enough of a consequence and he quickly weasels his way out of it.

After all of the tears and all if his bullshit lies, he was arrested on Friday for burglarizing a string of houses. All within miles of our childhood home.

This is devasting to our family. We have NEVER had anything like this happen before. We are a very normal middle class, college educated, boring family.

And it gets worse.

Shortly after his bail hearing my sister called me crying. She recently got a positive pregnancy test after months if fertility drugs. But her last hcg blood test was "cause for concern". My sister is meant to be a mom, she is an amazing person, but she only had enough money in savings left for one more month.

I am sitting here sobbing into my coffee. Please send good thoughts her way today. We really need some good news.

Your brother is a selfish drug addict and only rock bottom and tough love will kick him into gear. He has to do it because he wants to get better. Not because it is a consequence. I'm so sorry for your sister. I will never understand why some woman who are the shittest moms can pop babies out left and right, and the woman who would he the best mom can't. I hope it works out for her!! There's nothing you can do about your brother. HE has to do it for himself. Cut ties with him and be done.nas hard as it is. I've been down that road, it is the only way.

She has uterine cancer. They are not sure what stage she is yet. She had surgery last week to find out. But she is not doing great. She has had to go to the ER twice because of fluid build up at the incision site. I am so worried. I am sorry about your aunt.
