Perhaps this is not the case, but recently it seems as if none of our family have any interest in us at all.
Partner and I have 2 children each from previous marriage.
His son has ostracised him, daughter cares but not really very good about keeping in touch.
My side, son and daughter in law totally wrapped up in their own world.
Daughter will never ring unless she knows one of us is ill, and certainly would never suggest coming to visit us, so we always have to go there.
Even the 2 youngest grandchildren cannot even acknowledge me when I go to pick them up from school - unable to even say hello.
Now i know life is busy for the young ones, but we are really feeling down about this - sometimes wonder what is the point of being here.
My partner is putting on a brave face, but i know he is feeling it deeply.
I cannot bury my feelings, so am very down at the mo.
Is this the future as well as the present?
Words of encouragement and virtual hugs welcome.
