Sister prostituting herself.

Postby Crawling » Mon May 17, 2021 7:24 pm

I am schizoaffective and a ex drug addict. My sister saw a lot growing up that she shouldn’t have had to at one point I was diagnosed bpd but was removed from my diagnosis not sure if it’s cus it wasn’t accurate ever or wasn’t accurate anymore. Anyway my sister was diagnosed and has just had her baby taken away she’s ran away and intends on prostitution to maintain her lifestyle her friend is with her but living off my sister, she been gone 4 days amd she’s desperate for money now so looking into prostitution which where she is will be easy but also very dangerous I just want my baby sister home safe. I always been able to get through to her but now it’s like a brick wall has gone up amd I don’t know what to do I can’t get her to come home or anything she so set on self destruction there nothing I can do. Thanks for listening.

That is a really tough situation. Obviously if your sister is over 18 then of course she is free to do whatever she chooses. Realistically if she's over 16 there isn't much anyone can do. It does sound like she's travelling a risky and dangerous road though.

If you (or someone she knows and trusts) can talk to her out of it but it doesn't sound like she wants to listen to anyone. So you're left with call the cops on her, get her sectioned/committed to hospital. But those are pretty tough choices and she is not going to thank you for either. If you know where she is possibly a charity helping sex workers in that area might be someone you can talk to for advice if there is such a thing there.

I guess your best hope is that she finds that her new life is not all it's cracked up to be and come home of her own accord.

I do hope things work out for the both of you and I hope she's ok out there. It must be a real worry for you though and I am sorry you're having to go through all of that.

She’s over 18 and been discharged from all vulnerable services so realistically there’s nothing I can do she a 5hr drive away and I have 3 children and only a 4 seater car so can’t go get her besides she’s in the capital city so no chance of finding her if she doesn’t want to be found.

I don’t know what on earth to do I’m hoping she learns quickly that this isn’t the life she wants and comes home her friend is with her but only my sister is prostituing she’s been sexually exploited by men a lot and I guess this is her way of saying I’m gonna get paid for the sexual exploitation but I don’t think at age 19 she knows quite what she’s letting herself in for as a ex iv drug user I have some idea of the lifestyle although not identical but then nothing ever is but I know how it feels to sell your body and I know how dangerous it is but I am street smart and was careful she isn’t she’s recklace and is not street smart. I kept it to a couple of regular punters who I knew and someone always knew who I was with she’s just flogging it to anyone and no one knows where she is when she drives off.

Guess I’m just worried sick and I don’t know what to believe anymore she tells so many lies but I don’t want to disbelieve her when it turns out to be true she’s asking me for money constantly which I am not giving her which hurts.

In the end, you can't live another person's life for them. I have family members that are into drugs and I don't like the feeling of powerlessness. I can't pay for rehab- if they'd even go. I'm not going to take them in and enable it- and damn sure you're not going to be on drugs under my roof.

So... what is there? They'll have to figure it out for themselves- we all do, when we're on a self-destructive path. I have my issues, I'm not claiming sainthood- and no one can make me responsible, until I do it for myself.

I hate it, but it sounds as if she'll have to get to a point she's ready to quit this.
