I had a breaktrough with my family - I sensed one coming up last week, and I got a confirmation yesterday.
I was really so mad at them because of their indifference, I just started ignoring them. I was just so fed up with it.
My sister confronted them on Sunday, I didn't know about it. It's not at all her style, but she did it. Then she called me yesterday to tell me what happened.
Now they're kind of trying to understand, she explained them my case (they never asked about it before, and whenever I started talking about it they changed subjects so fast I couldn't believe it). She told them things are not going well at all. There were/are? some doubts about long term abx, but well, I can't expect everything to go well at 100%
My dad has been calling me 3 times this week...
Also: my husband has started watching Under Our Skin. He was simply shocked, and he's not easily shocked. Now I'm trying to get a full french subtitled version so that he can understand better.
I hope you'll get some understanding soon, cause it's so hard to handle when you're feeling left alone...
I will see for the future if they will stay interested, but I'll try not to get too upset about it (I'm saying now...) - there's still the majority of my 'friends' that are just glad to show their indifference...
