My sister was a girl full of life and really joyous ever since i can remember, she is 21. For 2 years she has been dating a guy who is a bad guy. [that's how my mum called him] well he is into bikes and looks like he's into drugs and he smokes but my sister always said that he was sweet and tender with her etc etc.... My mother and sister fought a LOT about it for months and months and the atmosphere was so tensed that we could feel it [father and i].. my father could say nothing as mother got heated up.. well to make a story short, mother accepted the guy reluctantly as my sister wanted to leave the house if mother didn't accept.. the problem is that the guy just left her... about 2months ago.. after 2 years of dating.. my sister was completely and is still completly in love with him and since that day, she's not going out at all... she graduated from uni last fall and now she's no longer looking out for jobs and she's not doing anything at home.. except staying in her room... mother or i have to go to her to give her meals etc... lately my mother has been feeling really guitly as she thinks that she should have stopped her... it seems like i'm the only one sane at home.. my father also is very affected by my mother's "guilt"... being alone at night, i've searched for some medication for depression that i could buy online without my parents' knowledge [i'm 19] and then give my sister just to save her but i don't know if it's possible.. the mediciine is called mindsoothe for depression that i've found at  ... do any of you know of that pharmacy and the product?? i can't go to the family doctor as my mother would feel betrayed by me. i only want to help them and i want us to be a happy family again.. without the ghost of josh [that ex bf]
flavia, I'm sorry but I edited out the link you left as it violates forum rule #4. No advertising or links to advertising. Only helpful websites are allowed.  Since the link was to an on line pharmacy who's sole purpose was to sell/promote medication without a physican's order this is the reason I have removed it.  I do hope you understand.  Thank you ~ Elisha

First of all welcome to the forum,I am really glad that you found us,and I hope you find the support you are looking for.
I am very sorry for what you are going through with your sister,her heart has been broken and it does sound like depression is sinking in.

Buying meds for your sister is not safe.
She needs to be seen by a doctor,because what if you gave her something and she was allergic to it? Many things can happen. Please do not even think about it.
I suggest printing some articles on depression out and giving them to her. Or just simply talking to her and telling her that you are worried,and even suggest that you will go to the doctor with her?
Does your mom realize that it might be depression? If not,that would be someone else to talk to too.

Please do not buy the meds online,you have got to be careful when dealing with meds and someone else.

Please keep us posted and stay strong

You are taking great steps to help your sister: she's lucky. A post here might help. Please take care of yourself: you need your health for yourself and to help sister.

I'm no physician. I have read 2 reliable sources (on mentionning that St-John's Wort (part of the drug you were looking up is associated with a reduction in the efficacy of birth pill. Are there other side effects ? Please be careful.

Your family situation sounds very difficult, with your mom and dad's feelings. They have to recognize their daughter is ill, beyond their feelings and that she needs help. Your sister might have different health problems : thyroid gland, mononucleosis, hypoglycemia. I do not mean to scare you by raising these issues. But these might be easier health concerns to motivate your parents to act by helping your sister to see a physician.
Taking this all on your one must be very difficult. Are there local community groups that might ? In my area (Montréal, Québec, Canada), one group evens offers workshops for family members, so they can learn to accept and cope.

Please get outside support in your community. You are not alone in this.
Good luck. My best thoughts are with you.

Hi Flavia
Welcome to HW, just to add to the great suggestions and advice that have been posted.  Perhaps there is a depression phone line that you could ring, or even get your sister to ring if you explain to her how worried you are about her.  They may have some good ideas on how to help.  Could you talk to your mum and see if she would consider taking your sister to the local doctor, that way your mum would feel like she is doing something to help your sister, and if she sees that you are worried too, she may not feel so alone, perhaps the 3 of you could go together, the female support thing.
I know it seems like forever, but obviously your sister is feeling really miserable, and that is understandable - it may just be time she needs.
Can you give any of her girlfriends a call and get them to drag her out for a night on the town, or even to just a girly night in at someones home?
Best wishes.
