Hello people! I'm 31, I have a 30yo sister diagnosed with panic disorder. She's been to all kinds of doctors for 10 years and nothing changes for her, even taking medicine.
She lives with my mom and dad and I live far from them, in another state.
Both my parents are very demanding and quick to criticize (they almost never have good stuff to say) and shes very sensitive.
She doesn't study, doesnt work, hates meeting people, she doesnt pick up the phone or even use social media.
She's never happy, she cries and gets angry, violent and takes on personal discussions about simple stuff.
I tried talking to my parents, but they're stubborn and they dont want to change.
Every time they argue with her she cries a lot and threatens to kill herself.
I've told her she needs emotional independence from them, since she's always expecting some compliment and can never take even the smallest of critics.
Told her she can't expect people to make her happy, since it's not anyone's duty to do so.
She stays home all day.
She's very beaultiful, talented, smart.
Ive tried everything, but when I talk to her she talks to me like I would never understand her mental condition. Like I am a complete ignorant and that everything i say is worthless.
I dont know what to do anymore. I wanna help her. What should I do?
