I consider myself a survivor of my family. I endured the trauma of childhood emotional abuse at the hands of my aunt/stepmother and father and cousin/stepsister (yes I belong on the Jerry Springer Show). I was kicked out of home penniless as a teen and found there was nothing but disloyalty and abuse from all members.
Fast forward almost 30 years and I reconnected with a family member I thought I could trust. I let her into my inner circle and let her know my inner thinking and secrets. What did she do? Betrayed me of course! Used me and when I no longer served a purpose, I was thrown away in the trash. This is more than I can bear as I am re-triggered all over again from my traumatic childhood. I even contemplated suicide, but I couldn't do that to my wife and her children (I wouldn't want to ruin their Christmas forevermore).
This is a hurt I bear alone generally. It makes me paranoid what they are saying behind my back. I have to let those thoughts go though or they will destroy me.

I am refusing to allow my family to win at this evil game they like to play with my mind.
I got a little more than drunk at NYE with my wife. All I wanted to do was die. I'm still here though. I came home from the party we were at to discover all family members have blocked me on social media outlets (both of the ones I use). Instead of crying I started laughing hysterically. I have no family and no friends coming to my birthday party. I even said no presents (I'd rather they donate to charity). Another reason to laugh hysterically, even though I'm heartbroken. Why do they have to all be a$$holes?

I will not even hear from my family to wish me a good day for my 40th. I play doting daughter (when they let me) and pay for lavish meals in restaurants (all the while I am a pensioner with a very limited income and they are millionaires!). Get this... when my grandfather died my evil stepmother/aunt took my uncle to court over grandfather's will in order to get money. There was no money to be had by anyone so the case was dropped. Can you believe the gall of these humans?
