- Wedding: October 2010
Our reception is this Saturday the 23rd (we were married at the courthouse and are now celebrating with family and friends). My husband’s side of the family is perfect they are loving and will be there for you no matter what. My side… is full of nutjobs. I love them dearly but it always seems like it’s one thing after another. My father and I had a falling out after the split between him and my mother. He has said and done some very horrible things and refuses to take responsibility for his actions. I told him until he can act like a mature adult I will not have him be a part of my life. He has not been invited to the reception. Well, I hear from relatives from his side of the family that he will be trying to attend. He also has an alcohol problem I forgot to mention. We have a security guard and I suppose I should just give him a picture of my father and tell him not to let him in. I just wish I didn’t have to parent my own father. This is supposed to be a happy day and now I’m just going to be worried the entire time.
I also have a younger brother (22) who has started up with a prescription pill problem. He started this right around when my parents split last year. We have tried to get him help but he refuses or says it’s too hard. My mother and I don’t know what to do. We have taken him to a rehab facility but he’s there at his own will and can leave whenever he wants. He recently has been in trouble with the law and I don’t know if he’ll be able to attend the reception. I love him and want to celebrate with him, I also want him to get better but don’t know how to help.
On top of all of that I have to finish the last minute details for the reception, work and go to school. I feel like I’m going to loose my mind! If you read all of this thank you. I just needed to vent.
