Are you sure we aren't related?? I'm so sorry you are going through all of this mess, pain and frustration! What? Are we really in pain because we want to be? I can promise you I'd make the "family" correct and just get over it if I could!! I'm sure everyone on this site would do the same. For me the worst part is not what is said, but what is implied by the disgust in their eyes when they look are me and the total lack of respect. This is exactly why I have chosen my own family now and have chosen not to remain in a relationship with people who simply can't support me. I hope things get better for you and remember, I believe we are all here to validate your illness and pain.
