I’d like a little insight and advice.
There’s a member of my family who has been messed up for a while now. She’s an alcoholic - and she drinks, but flatly denies it. It’s almost comical. It’s obvious she’s doing it, but she vehemently denies it.
She’s also diabetic, but doesn’t take care of it. Diabetes not under good control + excessive drinking = frequent bouts of DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis). She ends up in the hospital very, very frequently. Probably 12+ times a year. And almost once a year for a few years, she’s in a situation where when she gets to the hospital, things could go either way. I can’t image the toll this is taking on her body. And it seems she really doesn’t care - no matter what, she survives. And when she’s in really deep trouble, she isn’t even conscious, so she’s not aware of what she’s gone through.
She’s tried to kick the habit. But it doesn’t work. And she gets very upset when she’s challenged on this.
She lives with her parents, and they don’t know what to do. They don’t want to kick her out, lose her, and she ends up dying. But at the same time, she keeps ending up in the hospital. Some health professionals are wondering if this is a type of Munchausen syndrome.
She has never been able to hold down a job for long. Nor any relationship. And her actions end up alienating everyone around her. She has depression or bipolar disorder and sleep problems. In short, “messed up” is an understatement if there ever were one.
I feel I have the following options:
- Bind her so that she does not commit harmful acts, and focuses on good acts.
- Involve a spirit to help her overcome her harmful habits.
- Involve a spirit and put her out of her misery.
What do you recommend?
