It sounds like your sister has avoidant personality disorder. People with avoidant personality disorder are fearful of interacting with people they don't know. They are anxious and stressed all the time. Because of the depression and anxiety, they often self medicate with alcohol. If this is the case, your sister has a life time of problems that she has no control over. She will need your family's understanding that she can't help the way she is plus a ton of therapy.
