I recently had surgery and was diagnosed with cancer, all at once. Everyone in the family called and sent cards, and all of my friends, coworkers, husband’s friends and coworkers, etc. etc. My sister-in-law, however, not only has not called to asked how I am feeling or coping, she has also not sent a card. We have had a history of getting along off and on, but my feelings are so hurt by this that I don’t see us ever getting along again.
I was trying to just let it go, but I couldn’t and decided to call and confront her about the situation. She wasn’t home, so I left her a message that said basically I can’t believe you haven’t bothered calling, and the lie that she told my MIL about not calling me (my answering machine was broken…yeah right) couldn’t have been remotely true because I have caller id and can see anyone that calls, if they leave a message or not. Maybe that was wrong, but I am just so hurt by this that I had to say something.
