I haven't really spoken to my sister for almost ten years.
We had a disagreement (long story) and she stopped speaking to me. When I tried to reach out to her (via email), she accused me of a lot of crazy stuff. I realized then that she quite likely has narcissistic personality disorder.
So I quit trying to reach out to her. And I never heard from her again. (She lives overseas, so it's not like we live in the same town or anything.)
I feel sorry for her--she has no kids, never married--because she's totally missed out having a relationship with my kids. She only has 6 nieces and nephews and four of them are mine.
Anyway, I just wonder: Am I alone? Is anyone else estranged from family members? What happened in your situation?
