I hope your new year is getting off to a good start.
Mine was going well until I fell out big time with my brother. I have been trying for months and months to get him to visit mum who lives near me, more than once a year but he puts up excuse after excuse including its my fault she is up here. I supposedly made her and my dad move up!! How I did that I will never know. It was 10 years ago and they are adults and were more than capably of making there own decision. Dad, has since died, but my brothers last email (written by his wife I think) mentioned something my dad supposed to have said to my brother. This comment cut me to the quick ( as i was daddy girl and very close to him) and over night I went from feeling ok to rock bottom. My doctor has doubled my meds, she told me she hears a lot of long distance relatives causing trouble.
The very last comment on said email was that he will no longer be answering my emails or my phone calls!! Well, that is fine by me as I have never got on with him. Lets just hope nothing happens to mum as there will now be no way of contacting him. I have told my nephew I will let him know if there are any problems and he can pass on the message. I do everything for my mum when she needs me, shopping, dentist, doctors etc and I don't begrudge her one second of my time, she comes to me every weekend and Christmas. He didn't even bother calling her on Christmas Day!
Well, today is the first day I feel slightly more human and thought I would come and see how we are all doing? I hope you are all doing well and coping the best you can. I have CFS/ME and I think I am back on the bottom rung of the ladder.
God gave us our relatives, thank goodness we can chose our friends.
Love you all.
