Ann Marie, why exactly is your family mad at you? :
My husband called my sister and I guess she said I overstepped my bounds and there's a time and place for everything. He said, "When, after it's already done?" I guess the correct answer is never.
: My husband gave my niece the information and she read my letter in front of him and she was fine about it. Now all of a sudden everyone is pissed off at me. I guess what happened was she didn't want her boyfriend to see it but he did and he was angry and then she got upset. So, instead of her boyfriend being the one that everyone should be mad at for getting angry and then her crying, they are all mad at me for sharing the information in the first place.
|I mean, all you did was voice your opinion.
Like my husband told my sister, it's not an opionion. :LOL Seriously though, I didn't share my opinion, I just printed out some facts and asked her to look at them and asked her a couple of other questions. I didn't even say how I felt in the letter at all.
|Can you get someone else to get the wood for you?
No, I don't know anyone here.
|I don't think we should EVER just sit back and be silent. I hope your niece knows that you were only trying to help. I just don't understand how your family could be upset with you. YOU DID THE RIGHT THING!!!
Thanks. I don't understand why my niece didn't call me herself instead of complaining to everyone else? Or why nobody else called me for that matter. You'd think I killed someone with the way they are acting. When my husband called my sister he heard my BIL in the background swearing and at one point told my sister to just hang up.
: It's funny, a while back a friend of the family had taken advantage of us and nobody wanted to hear it...you know, the old if we don't know then we can't be mad at him type of thing.....now they feel I did something and everyone is blabbering to everyone else and I'm the bad guy and yet nobody talks to me. I'm treated worse than this other person that's not even family. To them I'm just a throw away person....always have been.
My husband's theory is that my niece looked at the information and was starting to question her decision which made her boyfriend mad, which made her cry, so everyone is blaming me for their fighting. I can't say for sure if it's right, but it sounds like it's possible. She was fine with my letter when she read it in front of my husband. Oh, and everyone thinks my husband was speaking for me at the hospital, but I didn't ask him to say a word. It was his own choice to speak up. He told my sister he stood behind my letter 100% and she told him that he was just as wrong as me then.
