Cutie, I know how that goes with your sister. My daughter is the same way. Ever since she became an adult she hardly wanted to discuss it with me. But now that I've been diagnosed with it too, she is more
open. She hasn't been under doctors care since she was 19-20. At least now I can tell her that she is slowly doing damage to her innards but at least not being on a maintenace med. She has weathered several flare-ups since then but still hasn't seen a doctor for it. All I can do is let her know I'm here if she ever needs me.
