My family seemed disappointed I beat my illness. My little nephew confirmed my suspicions
I (m47) was diagnosed with cancer about 6 months ago. I don’t know what happened but I was misdiagnosed. It wasn’t malignant as the initial diagnosis. Anyway I’m recovering. I don’t know why but if felt like mum (f73) and sister (f35) weren’t all glad about me recovering. I didn’t make a fuss but I told my gf(f38) about my observation. She told me not to worry and that they were probably still in shock.
We were invited to my mums house last Sunday and that’s when my nephew (m12) was a bit angry and blurted out something about him thinking he was gonna be rich soon because I was sick. It felt like a gut punch. I’m child free so I don’t really know when people start being a-holes. But it felt like he’s still too young for that so the next explanation is that he’s heard the adults around him?
I laughed and looked at my family. They pretended that they didn’t hear. Only my gf watched me in horror. I asked my nephew why he would think he would get rich when I have my gf. He was confused. I saw my sister turn around at that announcement. My gf spent the rest on the evening holding my hand creasing it.
Mum called the day after and she was dancing around the subject. Trying to find out more. I never discussed my will with anyone but what were they expecting? I’ve been with my gf for 13 years. She’s the love of my life and my family. WTF is going on?
I’m changing my will, excluding my nephews who I thought I would leave some for. It’s going to charity instead.
