It wouldn't bother me at all, I guess because technically (unless you factor in Common Law Marriage) she would be considered a guest.
I guess it just doesn't bother me because of my personality. I was with my ex for a few years and now am currently still involved in her sons life very much. But, since we weren't legally married, many people still referred to her as 'Danielle's friend...'
And vise versa, especially with the older generation in her family.View Thread
What's your addiction Is it money Is it girls Is it weed I've been afflicted by not one, not two, but all three.
Can someone do me a favor and explain to me why so many of the people who responded to this post didn't like the 1 idea?
I thought that was to help keep the budget cut down on the wedding itself. And (from what I was told today) is also used because they want to show who isn't engaged/married as opposed to those just 'shacking up'.
No offense... I just don't see the logic it in upsetting anyone. Is there a wedding etiquette rule where you have to place a persons entire name on an invitation? Do they charge by the letter like on head stones?
I've missed a lot of things as I have not been here (someone ran over themselves?) Heh, sounds somewhat like the cop we had the other night that shot himself...
I'm not going to try to go too deep into your life, but only give a few suggestions.
There was one lady who has Bipolarism II and she's diagnosed as a Paranoid Schizophrenic. In addition to the fact that she sees/hears things that are not there. When she's on her medication and actively seeking counseling she's a great lady to be around. It's also around this time that she decides that she doesn't need/want any help. Nothing is wrong. So, she would stop taking the medication etc, and then she would regress... badly.
One day administration decided to record her. She comes in, talking about aliens getting in her brain, speaking another language, and so forth. The unit recorded it all, then they got back on her meds and about 1-2 months later they showed her the tape. To this day (and that was earlier last year) she hasn't stopped taking her meds and seeking professional help. They showed her the very ugly side of her.
If I were you, I would take a few pictures of those times when she's just completely wasted. And when she's sober... show them to her. It might not make a huge difference, but no one likes to see themselves in a ugly light. And that will definately show it. It might help to slow her down some.
As far as the weight gain, I would peg that on her age (I believe you're in your 40's) and the alcohol consumption. Alcohol is just like most beverages are nothing but empty calories.
Anyway, I would bet *most* of it is because of the alcohol consumption. If you can somehow help her out with controlling that then many other things will hopefully fall into play.
