Last weekend, I had to go to hospital for an emergency removal of my appendix. Anyway, I thought I’d save him trouble and avoid being a drama queen by telling him there was no need to visit me (either at the hospital or when I was at home recovering). Also, I looked awful and was vomiting quite a bit (and my home looked like a bomb hit it because I wasn’t really up for cleaning/tidying!), so I didn’t want him to see me in a state (yet I know that is really bad because we’ve been dating nearly 1.5 years!). I then made the mistake of going back to work but then didn’t make any plans to catch up with him (yes, I know, bad mistake…. but I was so focussed on work…..). And then when I emailed and spoke to him during this time, I just wanted to talk about my recent successes at work (because I’d had a lot of exciting things going on I wanted to share!).
Now he’s told me that he felt like he’s come second to my career and he also felt like I wasn’t communicative enough about my health ordeal (because I haven’t really talked about it at all…I kept changing the subject to work….). Yes, I know I was in the wrong a bit here but how do I make it right?!
