My family members meaning my Mom and siblings strangely refer to me as sensitive while so feel the opposite and that they are insensitive. They can't understand why it bothers me that in a year and only living 20 mins away I have seen my Brother and his Wife 1x. I have heard from them once on text and only because it was something to do with them. Not genuinely interested in what's going on with my kids or any of us. I have heard from my Sister 1x. My youngest Brother maybe 1 or 2x. I get no phone calls or contact. I make effort but the same is not given. I stopped calling and texting because I realize myself and their nephews are not a priority. When we moved 6 months ago none of the family offered to help. Infact, my Mother didnt even call for almost a month after to see how her Grandchildren were doing or if we needed help unpacking. My Inlaws (without asking) drove out of state to help us move and they are elderly. My youngest baby had surgery and none of them bothered to be there for support or even to call after to see how he is doing. I finally heard from my Mother for the first time in 3 months tonight and she informs me she was in the hospital last weekend but none of my siblings notified me. They all went to see her yet I never even got a notification of any kind. I wouldn't expect my Mother to but at least one of my three siblings. I'm just almost finding this strangely almost humorous now because I'm thinking wow my Mom could die and no one would call me. I've made every attempt to resolve the situation or even let then know that its probably important to include your sister a little bit but they say I'm sensitive. They all seem to be very self absorbed people. Would anyone find this strange? I stopped chasing after all of them because I'm tired of wasting my energy in people who just don't clearly make you a priority to be included in their lives. I'd like to think I'm pretty level headed in my thoughts about things like this and they claim they are busy but they have time for inlaws and friends so that is just BS. Infact, I'm the only one with kids too and have a hell of ALOT more going on then them. It just amazes me.
