Hang in there.  I know it seems like everything is falling down around you… but hopefully you are grateful for the stability you have and are able to provide some safe harbor for those in chaos around you.

Hive hug.

Wow…I think I remember a previous post about your brother getting turned away the day he started his job. I really don’t think that’s legal. And the fact that his wife refuses to move where they can find more work? That’s aweful. *HUGS* I’m sorry everyone is having a hard time.

Sending hugs your way! I’m so sorry to hear about all of this happening to you and your family right now. It certainly sounds like you have a lot going on. As far as your brother and SIL goes – SIL sounds like she has some issues of her own. If your brother is doing all he can to get a job, she should be the loving, helpful, comforting wife and not a controlling you know what. As for his child if she does kick him out – at least in Ohio, he would certainly have rights to his son regardless of what the mother says or does (I’m a former social worker and have seen similar situations). I hate to say this, but your brother might want to have a ‘back up plan’ just in case SIL loses her mind and does it regardless of his job situation (hope for the best, plan for the worst kinda deal). As for your Maid/Matron of Honor – I would just suggest you be there for her to comfort her and listen to her, as long as it doesn’t do detriment to you and your own relationship. One thought for your Maid/Matron of Honor too is perhaps suggest that she see a counselor/therapist/licensed social worker regarding her depression (because depression can be very serious and should be treated). This is different than her marriage counseling with her husband – she should seek counseling for herself, on her own. Perhaps this counselor could help her address her marriage concerns as well as the depression. I’m sorry to hear about Mr. Junebride’s brother and his heart condition – the good news is it wouldn’t be the first time a doctor has been wrong and someone has gotten better & lived longer. As for you! Congratulations on your promotion!!! How exciting πŸ™‚ And also on controlling your eating concerns. These are both things to be celebrated, regardless of your family/friends trials and tribulations. One cannot simply stop celebrating their own ‘wins’ in life, just because others are having troubles (I am not saying rub it in their faces, but you and your Fi can certainly celebrate!!). 

Best Wishes!

I know it doesn’t feel like it, but “this too shall pass”. Things have a way of working themselves out, but I’m sorry.
