Freaking Out

Cut for drug use and violence.

My youngest sister, Emily, who's 14, called me tonight. Apparently my mother has found out about my 18-year-old sister Susan using drugs. I don't know how much she knows about what Susan's been doing, but it's bad. Apparently she was actually threatening to kill Susan, though I don't know if she was serious or not. Emily was hiding in the garage to call and tell me.

I'm really worried for everyone involved. My mother has a terrible temper, and when she flies into one of her rages, there's no telling what she might do, or to whom. I don't know what to do. I'm an hour away, too far to do any good. And if my mother finds out what Susan's been doing (hard drugs: crack, acid, prescription drugs), she may well lose it.

I don't know what to scared right now for my sisters...don't know what to do.
