When this woman is annoyed with her sister, she asks Reddit:
Background info: I (34f) have never had a great relationship with my older sister (36f) but we are civil. She lives near and has a close relationship with our mom. I live in a different country. I am very-low-contact with our mom due to child trauma (I've had extensive therapy.)
I gave birth to a stillborn baby girl in 2017 at 35.5 weeks. It was terrifying and traumatising and, for anyone else who has been in this boat, I highly recommend the charity Sands.
My family were not very supportive. I get it: baby death makes people weird.
My daughter’s death took a huge toll on my mental health. I mention this because I feel it contributes to my anxiety about being TA.
In 2019 my sister became pregnant with a baby girl. I was happy for her and excited to become an Aunt. I also had a lot of difficult feelings. My sister has always managed to outshine me, and I still carry some of that insecurity.
