Am I being selfish?
Help! I am not sure if I’m being selfish or not. Here is the situation:
I am having a medical procedure today that will mean I can’t use one hand for about 48 hours. Meaning I can’t drive myself there and back safely.
I made the appointment for midday so it was after the Grandskid swimming lesson that my DH attends weekly but really I had to fit in with the specialist . I assumed DH would drive me there and home but it turns out that SD changed the lesson times and is now leaving both gskids with DH for the whole morning. God only knows how a stay at home mother can’t find time to do whatever urgent thing it is she needs to (much sarcasm employed here!) which means he is unable to help me get to and from my appointment.
We had an argument this morning and he left for the swimming lessons with the statement “you just can’t find it in you to help her at all! How terrible!”.
Nevermind that whilst I looked after him post major surgery this year, there was no help from SD. She couldn’t even drop by to sit with him for a coffee whilst I did shopping or household duties and I’m the selfish one!
Am I selfish? I feel second best, again
