Thanks for your stories. It gives me a huge insight on assisting my Brother's BP girlfriend. I ,an outsider, would say she ruined my wedding with her out of control behavior...how dare her. She drank and screamed FU remarks to my best friend and cousin's girlfriend because they were talking to my brother. My brother is still with her. she was adopted so she has a lot of abandonment issues to deal with too. My brother is amazing but feels trapped... she has no friends and her parents have shut her out. He loves her but I just don't know if he can spend the rest of his live walking on egg shells. We can't talk about marriage, babies, or family memories when she is there....she often says during family functions "there is too much family bonding and gets up and leaves" Killing herself has been a huge threat as well! She had ruined our family unit. We no longer do the family events/traditions we use to and she has isolated him from us. I just realized maybe she can't help it by reading your stories. she takes meds but it is just her I know now. I am a Christian and Forgiveness is already granted. How can we make it a happy medium for our family and her? She deserves to have people who care for her but we should not have to walk on eggs shells? HELP PLEAAAASSSSSEEEE!!!!
