You just have to learn to ignore the drama that your cousin wants to create.  She has the issue, not you.  You are correct, you are starting a family with your FH and that is the important part.  Focusing on that is where you are and should be, IMO.  Just blow her off and ignore any rude comments, just keep remembering that you are doing what is right for you and to heck with the rest.  I know it suck, but sometimes family just sucks.  We all have members like that in our families, there is always one in the crowd.

@ashleyyyg: Well, it’s a bummer, because your family (member) doesn’t get the “insomnia” reason, but that’s his problem.  Hopefully you won’t get crap next time.  Too bad you couldn’t have left it that you had other plans.  Have a Merry Christmas.

I don’t what your cousins problem is, but in this case I think I would go. An hour drive really isn’t that far.  I used to commute that for work every day, so to see family for a day, its nothing.  I’d have my SO drive and try to nap on the way there. If you honestly don’t want to spend the time with your family cause its no fun now, then that’s your choice, but I come from the camp of suck it up for family if its important. Its only one day. Not for cousin though, but for mom or anyone else that I want to see.

To address your question about the psych evaluation. Many sleep problems have an underlying , often undiagnosed mental health concern, If you have trouble falling asleep, anxiety may be the cause. Trouble staying asleep can be caused by depression.
