Could I get peoples views on this please as I have mental health issues & struggle to trust my own thoughts & feelings at times.
A year ago my first gc was born. I sent pictures & news of him to one of my oldest friends. When her son was little I helped her with childcare as much as I could & she would help me in other practical ways. Anyway over the years she has moved a few miles away & we only see each other maybe 2 times a year & message as & when which is totally fine.
I messaged on the day my gc was born with photos & as we were all in lockdown wanted to give some good news to my friend. Not all good news as there were some health issues which I shared.
As we were messaging I got some news that my daughter could actually hear my gc screaming as they performed a lumbar puncture down the corridor which I relayed to my friend as I was feeling pretty helpless at this point.
Anyway working FT nights plus overtime in the NHS, the next few months were a blur of work & supporting my daughter as her partner was working away & baby was constantly screaming. 2 months later a message pinged in wanting my husband to go fix her Mums car & no mention of the baby or his health. Having seen the 2 messages together in my chat history I felt like this was so hurtful. I cannot understand why she never followed up to see how the lumbar puncture went. Is it me ? Should I of messaged her & told her the outcome ? Do we still have a friendship as I’m feeling angry too ?Thanks for reading xx
