Hi, my sister lives on her own, her husband died 10years ago and her daughter died last November. She has 4 grown up boys and 11 grandchildren. All her sons live near her. I live 250 miles away. The trouble is she rings me every day starting in the morning and through out the day none stop which can add up to 20 times a day, also she wants me to call her at night. It is starting to make me angry. I have started to turn my mobile off and ignore some of the calls on my home phone. When I do answer some calls in the morning she can be on the phone for thirty minutes I ring off and within 10 seconds she is back on the phone. She says she is very lonely and just wants to talk to people. I have asked her to go to the doctors, see a therapist, get a voluntary job but she won't do anything I try to suggest. I try to be patient with her but it is really starting to drag me down.
