- Wedding: August 2012
I’ve posted about this a few times. I’m worried that my Mom will ruin my shower and my wedding. She’s an alcoholic, very reclusive, has deteriorated in her physical health and she’s bitter that my Dad has re-married.
I’ve invited a couple of her friends to be with her for the wedding, but she could absolutely still embarass me with her behaviour. Even if she happens to be sober, her mind is so messed up from drinking that she acts like a child or says inappropriate things and thinks she’s being funny at other people’s expense.
She so far hasn’t been involved in any of the planning, because she just can’t really, it’s way beyond her capability and yet she insists that she will be coming.
I have no idea how she will handle this. She could very likely back out at the last minute and not come at all. I have no way of knowing. And if she does come, she might break down seeing my Dad with his new wife and not handle it well.
It’s such drama with her, always. But she’s my Mom and she should be there.
It’s sad to say but I almost hope she backs out so I don’t have to worry about her. But then I’ll feel guilty because she’ll be at home crying and missing it.
If anyone else has this kind of situation I’d love to hear, because it sucks. My sister doesn’t even want to get married because of this BS and it’s really affrecting my ability to look forward to my wedding.
