I have an older sister who is an absolute mess. It's a long story but pretty much can be summarized as: she can't handle her crap, is a terrible mother to her three kids, and has used/abused every member of our family for years (especially our parents, the ones raising her 8 year old at the moment because he hates her and my BIL). I pretty much loathe her.
However, my Aunts and Uncles will be making a trip to my parents house this weekend and have expressed hope that I would be there. I was very excited...until I found out my sister was going to be there. Now I am dreading it because I know the entire weekend will be spent with her telling her tales and seeking pity...which I cannot stand because she is far from a victim.
My parents want me to come and just ignore her....but I'm not sure I can even stand to be in the same room with her.
Should I suck it up, put the big girl panties on, and attend this get together (my aunts and uncles done visit often and I love them dearly) despite feeling like every minute I'm around my bitch sister is one minute closer to me losing my mind? Or should I keep my distance and be sad I'm not there but sane?
