Do you think she'd join this forum? Sometimes, and by your post, it sounds like her pride is not allowing her to admit she is depressed or needs help....that's a touchy one....I was that way for years and suffered miserably cuz of it. Maybe she doesn't realize that tons of people are just like her, especially in this economy. It also sounds like she struggles with bitterness & anger....those are....well, spiritual problems, she may be oppressed by (don't mean this to scare you cuz it's not a scary thing, it's actually VERY common) the devil.
If I were you I'd pray for her, Pray in Jesus' name that he would bring the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ between your sister and any evil forces in her life and pray for spiritual healing. Do you think she'd let you pray with her??
I guess, what i'm saying is, I believe that people that suffer from anger, depression, and bitterness (well, sometimes they don't even know it) need God's grace to do a work in their heart (He did in mine).
This is where true Christ-like love comes in, are you willing to love her, even if she's a b****, are you willing to take the blame and be the "whipping post" so to speak from your parents?
Sounds like God wants to use you to help her, I will pray for strength for you and wisdom, just be gentle. When my husband goes through his bouts of depression I ask him gently before leaving for the day if there's anything I can pray for him for SPECIFICALLY today. Then throughout the day I let him know I'm thinking of him, sending him texts, etc. I know you're always with your sister so...well, I spose just yield to what she'd like to do. Do makeovers on ea other, or watch a funny movie or series.
I do love helping people, and would love to email her if she wanted to, you can too if you want, just click on my username and it will bring you to my profile page.
I'll be praying.
