Not sure where to put this. It's a long, frustrating story on everything that has happened in the past with my side of the family. I won't go into details because I could write a book on it. But to keep it short, I don't trust my side of the family. Seems like they always have something negative to say or find some way of controlling my life. Anyways, my step mom had contacted my husband and I about getting together close to where we live on August 6&7th. I feel nervous and I'm trying not to let my thoughts run wild. I'm nervous on how it will go. My stepmom always brings up their schooling. My husband and I repeatedly told her our decision on it and the decision will never change. I may need to ask my husband under no circumstances will he ever leave my side when we see them. Last thing I want is to be alone with them and them throwing out some comments or questions where I feel so uncomfortable and not sure how to respond. My husband does a lot better then I do regarding those situations. I feel like I'm backed into a corner unable to go anywhere. I hate feeling like this. I want to be comfortable with my side of the family instead it's filled with panic.
