I originally posted this story about my sister Kelly about a year ago. I saw her over the Christmas holidays and here is an update on her condition:
 
 
Hi board,
I saw my sister Kelly at Christmas and I couldn't believe that she is actually getting worse.
She bent down to take off her boots and almost fell through the front picture window. When she walks, she has to hold on to the wall or she'll lose her balance, She can't put a sentence together.

But the worst thing of all ~ She is super depressed.

Since she has never worked in her life and didn't (couldn't) complete High school, her special needs counsellor has told her she is unemployable.
Now when she wakes up each morning, she feels like a bag of crap and useless to the world.
She's already tried to take her life a few times.

I could go on and on but what's the point.

That's all for now.

Jennifer,

Since his probs are not related to EP, I'll send you an e-mail about him if you don't mind.

devil   devil hi everyone.
She now has developed "Osteoporosis" as a result of the long term use of meds and staying away from certain foods. She probably would have got it anyway but the long term use of the meds sped up the process.

My heart is breaking for your sister, RanMan. I am SO sorry.
 
Many prayers for you both. You are a wonderful brother.
 
God bless you,
