Point Critical

Husband's brother is making the rounds and calling all family members to ask for money.

An attorney in California recently called them to say that he reviewed sister-in-law's arrest and for $5,000+ he can get the charges reduced. Meanwhile, the two continue to drink, drug and gamble.

I won't agree to give them money anymore, and I have to wonder how the entire family may have contributed to the continuation of their addictions. We keep bailing them out. And they keep using and abusing.

If they want to kill themselves or land in jail...they have that right. But what they are doing to their kids is criminal. And I'm hard at work to rally help from the rest of the family...yeah, the ones that have turned a blind eye to all of this for more than 15 years.

This situation is at it's worst stage yet.
