      Wow! How brave and courageous of you to reach out and let her know what you need. So many times people just don't know what to do... Hugs

      Thank you Raz. I’m happy with my family situation. I feel stupid now that I let it bother me all this time. It’s who she is. I don’t know why I expected my situation to change her. Next time something is bottling up inside me I will address it sooner, but first look at it from all sides. I’m very grateful for whatnext and people like you to share my thoughts with. I hope you’re doing well!

      Hi, Maya. I am truly sorry to hear that your family is not forming a great support system. My sisters and brothers have been great. My husband not so much. He is fairly selfish as a general rule and comes from a sort of remote and cold family. I have fabulous friends who have been there for me in ways small and gigantic. Some of my children have been great. One is terrified and sort of hides from me. My daughter tells me to call her if I need anything. Not helpful at all. People are people- some are generous and incredibly kind and the end of the spectrum is people who are selfish and incapable of being thoughtful. I am so very grateful to the first group and feel sorry for the last.
