Fahd, depends on who these family members are. Should it be your wife and kids, then you should start putting your foot down. Other family members? Id say get away from those toxic people as they are not good for you nor your health. I agree with Erica, sometimes the people who we love are the ones who hurt us most. Its in your power to decide what you want. We do not know the circumstances, but you know what is important to you.
We often expect our loved ones to understand exactly what we are going through, the sad reality is even if they live with us and witness what you are going through they still really won't know what it is like. It is like that with everything in life, not just P. My kind advice is expect less understanding from them, love is a strange thing, hold on to it but don't expect your loved ones to be perfect. Should something happen to one of them you might be the one who wouldn't understand. Let go and just let be. xx
