Really? REALLY?

I had a lot of stuff that was supposed to happen this weekend. Hockey game Friday night, funeral Saturday morning, hockey game Saturday evening, Halloween costume party Saturday night. Which of these events did I attend? None. None at all. Thursday Husband was sick with a cough and nasal congestion. Friday, it transferred to me. I let a lot of people down this weekend, including my best friend and my sister in law. What I didn't realize was that being sick was MY fault and that my mom would be SO annoyed with me for not being able to attend the funeral of my great uncle. I had all intentions of going to the funeral. And if I hadn't had a fever of 100.2, I would have. But what were my options? Go and then feel even worse and get even more sick and end up with pneumonia or something? I'm sure my mom and I will patch things up, but I'm really angry right now. What was I supposed to do?

I'm so happy this weekend is over.

You're not alone. My mother always acts as if I am just pretending to be sick. It really makes me boil. My therapist finally told me to stop expecting a different reaction from her and not to put too much weight on it. Easier said than done of course but still good advice.

Husband tells me to do the exact same thing. Acceptance of people's actions is so hard, but so necessary. Thank you for your comment, it helps to keep things in perspective. :)
