Long story short....I've spent a week in hospital last week. H's family have rallied round helping with C etc which is great. My parents have done nothing. Not a thing. No hospital visit, my dad hasn't even called in 8 days to see how I am. My mum has texted every day, but no offer to help with C to give H's family a break or a visit, nothing. I don't have the best relationship with my mum, but I did expect a bit more from my dad. I found it embarrassing that it was left to H's family to do all the running around. I have to bring it up with my dad, but I don't think it would make any difference, it'll just make me feel better to let him know I don't think it's acceptable. How can do it. He hasn't called to see how I am, so could be waiting a while for him to get in touch. And I don't want to call him out of principe. He isnt articulate enough to send a from the heart letter..wwyd??

Hmmm choices are you call him, and it falls on deaf ears. YOu get would up and end up sick and stressed again. Or ignore it, ignore them, and jog them on sweets.
Big hugs cos it's totally ***.

Ignore them. Maybe write it down but don't send it. It is what it is babes, they are never going to change and I am sure that everyone is more than willing to help as Long as you are ok xxxx

Ah that is poor Hun. Like the others say, unles it's going to make any sort if difference which it doesn't sound like, I would ignore it all and maybe treat the inlaws just so they know how grateful you are of them. Sorry it's rubbish x

Families are like that you know. My family would rally round, H's family less so. You do have a better relationship with H's family. I would ignore it tbh. yOU KNOW WHERE i AM IF YOU DO NEED ANY HELP AT ALL DON'T YOU?! X OOps totally unintentional caps locks xxx

Ignore and try not to get wound up by it.
I had the same following #1 when I has a shoulder injury and one. My dad had no idea as I didn't want to worry him as he has a heart condition so I just played it down. My mother made it about her and told me I wasn't really depressed! Neither helped out but IL's were fab.
You can't choose family...

I agree with everyone else, ignore it. My family are thoughtless and don't offer help whereas H's family are very kind and generous, and will do anything to help. X
