I've finally had it sink in. Several things recently happened that demonstrates this to me. The first was a very heart-felt email that was never answered. The second was not receiving any sympathy for a hand injury I had. The third was when I wasn't even asked about my daily message, which stated I had hurt my ankle the night before and hoped I could walk in the am. No mention of this the next day when we chatted.
There are several things that get to me. One is to be ignored. The other is to feel unimportant. He's done well to do both. Thanks, T. By being an ass, you've finally shown me, unequivically, that I don't matter to you.
