You did great getting her from eating those noodles in the morning, now the next thing is to get your mom not to buy them at all. If she is taking blood pressure medicine, she probably need to have the doctor to check her out again. Sometimes the medication makes you feel down and out or depressed, or the medication may not agree with her making here feel tired all the time. Most medications help people gain weight too because it is not agreeing with their body. Have a talk with the Dr. or the pharmacist, there may be some supplements that need to be taken with the medication, mostly magnesium and potassium, because some blood pressure medicine robs the body of these. Also she is so young it might be the only thing she need is those supplements to make her feel better and who knows her blood pressure may go down. Good luck. :peace:

I suggest getting her some red bull and then dragging her to the spa for a makeover and a massage. Then vitimins and doctor visits.

She needs some motivation to get her out of the house and do something at the very least. You can yell all your want, but she'll need inspiration if she's like this. There are those programs where people of similar interest can together and do things.

You may need to have a talk with your mom to find out if there is anything going on with your sister that you should know about. Maybe she needs to get a way for a few days. If it is at all possible try to take her home with you for a day or two the change may be just what she needs.

Plan your next visit home to include her meeting you somewhere. If she do not have access to a car just get close enough that cab fare want be too high. But get her out of the house even if just for a moment.

It's great that you're concerned for her.  Unfortunately, with computers, IPhones, and IPads everywhere these days, it's hard to get teens to get off the couch and away from the screen.  Maybe you should have her stay with you for a few days and find out what she's interested  in.  Perhaps she's depressed or there's something going on at home.  Spend some time with her so you can find out what's going on.
