Re: Is my family selfish or just lacking common sense?
Good routine hand washing does help a lot to stop the spread of illnesses. I personally do think you are overreacting a bit.
However, being big pregnant myself, and having had three other kids, overreacting and being over-zealous about things that are already irritating or upsetting to you are totally normal for hugely pregnant ladies. It's par for the course and it just comes with the territory.
I am really sorry to hear about your mom, I am sure that is really stressful. And I am sorry your brother is a jerk. It sounds like this is more than just the illness issue. I hope your mom gets better soon, and things start improving.
