I love my sister, I really do but at the moment I am so angry with her I can't think straight. She is developing an increasingly marked drinking problem (If I'm honest its coming close to full blown alcoholism )
At the last family gathering she hid a bottle of spirits in her handbag and apparently polished it off during the evening and how do I know this? Because her partner decided to go and look in her bag whilst she was out having a ciggie and annouce to everyone what she had done.
Ok so far you may argue sad and I should be offering the helping hand..well.. I have..repeatedly but this time it was in front of my son who is autistic and I'm sorry but I don't feel he should have to watch his aunt and uncle having rows about who's got a temper problem and who's got a drink problem. He tends to absorb more information than people realise and usually it pops up at a later date , he has a reasonably strong emotional bond with both of them and I'm worried that all he's going to see is two people he loves hurting each other and not u8nderstand why.
I'm tempted to say to her that unless they can sort it out between them or keep it under control then we don't want them round him and hate that I feel like that.
