    I vote to ignore.  November is a few months away.  You still have time for things to cool down. 

    Are your parents involved at all?  Could they talk to her?  It sucks that you’d have to put up with scumbag boyfriend, but maybe he won’t act like an idiot?  Hopefully?

    @greyskies: That is quite a lot to be going through, my advice is invite them all and see which one comes, you all know that sister C is “using prescription drugs” and that no matter how difficult you try she has to want to change for herself.  Yes, you are correct she is your sister, if you see her in danger than protect her even if it means from her own self.

    My story is  a bit different it involves my mother who suffers from dementia, gosh I hate the state that doesn’t force mental patients to go psychiatric ward rather it is voluntary.  Well, my mother for 3 years, yes 3 years refused to go get help, day and night we worried, cried, and at times lost hope. Each time the police took her to the mental hospital we “bailed her out” and signed that we would be responsible for her. BAD idea, my mother went back to her old ways, we knew she needed the treatment but seeing her in their with no support we gave in when she cried  3 times. However, all that changed the 4 time, we all the 4 sisters made a pact that no matter if it hurt us seeing our mom, or if she cried we would not interfer with treatment. 3 months, 6 months, 9 months 1 year went by and God blessed us with a different mother that was schrophernic or demented rather a subtle women that we knew, but it took us not giving in to “bail her out” so that she got the treatment she deserved.

    My advice is to sit down with each sister seperately and discuss.  Use lots of “I” statements to explain what a special day this is for you and to ask for the support and help on that day.  DO NOT dredge up past drama— they all know it is there and bringing it up might make it flare again.  Keep the convo simple and short.

    I am so sorry you are having to deal with all of this…
