Okay so had a situation come up tonight that really pissed me off. Hoping I'm not making too big a deal about it. I was at my moms house, with my b-I-l and my nephew in the kitchen. He said to his son, "Wyatt, go give aunt Amanda a big hug." I wasn't expecting that the little one would run full force into my right side, and I didn't get him to stop in time. Needless to say, it most certainly triggered my pain to flare up again, while it has been under control. Am I making a big deal out of nothing, or do I have a right to be upset? The little one is 2, almost 3 and he doesn't know any better. I even walked out of the house without even speaking to him cause to me, that was totally disrespectful.
Did the adult know of your health issues? If he does then you have the right to pull him to the side and explain that having his child run at u like a bull in Paloma is not appreciated. Explain why and leave it at that. If he is true family he'll understand. If not and u have to be in the full family presence again u will have to be more vigilant and control the little feet yourself. U can be loving since the kids r just kids but if u see them running u can put that wall up to block..lol
I think people forget...? Ouch, ouch, ouch. I think even those closest don't really get it &/or don't want to think of us as compromised, in pain, different than we used to be. Could it have been that you seemed to need a hug, or a smile? Sorry for your pain. I completely understand, ouch. Even little ones can relate to having an owie. Maybe that'll be the case at some point.
