In March, I attended my daughter's wedding, and there I met my sister-in-law and her children. We had a great time and agreed to stay in touch. Upon returning home, I wrote them a very engaging letter. (snail mail) A month went by with radio silence. I sent the 8-year-old boy who loves turtles a Turtle Skeleton to celebrate Easter. I explained I found it when mucking out my red-ear slider turtle pond. I pieced it together and glued all parts in place. The shell was giant. I made an artistic box out of a 1950 lunch pail for my new niece-in-law. ( I am very proud of it). People have called me weird in my past, and I don't know why. Ergo I have become a shut-in. This is my first attempt at building a friendship in five years. This forum is my only connection to the outside world. My question to all is, should I attempt again to communicate? Were my gifts not appropriate? I suffer from BPD, so I overreact to being ignored. Do you think I am being ghosted? Or should I try one last time?
