Carolyn Hax: Sister’s irrational hostility puts the whole family in a touchy situation

Dear Carolyn: My sister “Rhonda” is about to give birth to her third child. She already has 2- and 4-year-olds, and I have a 1-year-old. During most of this pregnancy, my sister has acted almost as if she hates me. Sometimes when our family is together and I start talking, she will suddenly leave the room. She is increasingly argumentative with me, taking offense with me over seemingly innocuous conversation. It leaves me feeling crazy.
