Yesterday, I went to see Kenny Chesney at Gillette Stadium with my sister. We left Quincy at 10 to get to Gillette early to tail gate. We met some of my sister's friends and had a decent time tailgating. The problem, after drinking a 12 pack and a few others, my sister became belligerent. I have a hard time dealing with her when she is drunk. The more I lash out at her behavior, the more belligerent she becomes. I don't deal with it well at all. She handles the pressure of our lives and the situation Mom and Dad are in by drinking. I handle it by withdrawing and getting depressed. I want her to get help but she is not ready. I told her today that I can not deal with her when she is drunk. I have decided to avoid those situations and not enable her behavior. The concert was ok. We were way up in the nosebleed section of the stadium. There were about 5 rows until the top of the stadium. The sound system sucked. We could barely hear the singing. After most of Kenny, we had enough and left early. On the way back to the car, my sister did not like the route we took and was very vocal about her opinion. I tried to tell her to stop but she persisted. Once we got to the car, we had a silent ride home. She called me this morning to apologize sort of and I told her I can not deal with her when she is drunk. It really pains me to see her in this situation as she is my youngest sister.
