So My Dad died last Monday, just 8 days ago. Since then my sister has done nothing but cause trouble. I'm 25 and she is 18 years older then me & my brother is a similar age to her. Last night she stormed out of our house because of something my brother said, about how we should be making decisions as a family & not independantly (as she was trying to dictate things abt funeral n stuff) she has upset my Mum so so much tho.  She just called her this morning and told my Mum how upset she is and that she won't go in the funeral cars or speak to anyone.
I feel that she's never going to speak to me again - becuase when she was on her way out I said she was pathetic - which I think she is (But I was just upset coz she was upsetting my Mum - who doesn't need anymore upset atm) and then my nieces won't speak to me again & that I've probably lost half my family - as well as my Dad.
Don't know what to do really - feel dead sensitive and upset & really worried about My Mum. and tmr is my Dads funeral & I don't want there to be upset & trouble.

I have seen this so many times, when someone passes it seems as though the family goes into total meltdown and forgets how to act properly.

I would take this all with a grain of salt,it sounds like your sister is dealing with her grief the only way she can,that is taking control and staying busy.

Everyone deals with it in different ways... this is a situation where if it gets too bad then just sit down give her a hug and tell her that as a family everyone wants to do their part. And that you understand this is how she is dealing with it.

Chronic Depression, Panic Attacks,Anxiety Attacks,Anorexia

Please remember,I am not a professional..I am just a person who is also fighting depression.

I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.
