Certainly it was crucial that you had that operation. I suppose they were shocked at suddenly without warning discovering the extent of the secrets you had been keeping from them. Yes, it's awful that they were not really there for you, to support you. Are there other family members with whom you can communicate, who can help bring you all back together again ? Is there a counsellor atached to the hospital, who could also help in this way ? Maybe they're still to some extent in shock,
