    Hi, I no longer see my family and wondered if anyone else on here does 2? I don't know, I guess I just want to feel that I'm not alone in having gone through this. Please feel free to comment or PM me if you'd prefer. I'm happy to talk to people about this, and would also really love to help anyone just having trouble (I've had a lot of experience of relationships deteriorating).

    I think I'll make a poll so the results are more easy to see. Juts mulling over family life, and life in general, and curious where everyone else is at the moment.

    I have my immediate family, but I'm estranged from all my cousins, aunties, uncles and grandparents - mainly because they were all *****, who weren't happy with anything we did.

    Yeah, all of 'em. I might PM you later with some of the details - don't like going in-depth in public. 'Tis a shame really. :sigh:

    Do you mind me asking - are you estranged because of your orientation?

    Thanks, yes, it's not the easiest, especially as I have to get student finance now as an independent student, an had to convince them that i was estranged etc.

    What happened with your family?

    i have a bad relationship with my family and would consider leaving them

    right now i can't cause i'm 16 and live with them...but in the future i certainly will, except for my mum, even though i do resent her like the other members, she'd be the only one i'd honestly be gutted if she died
    i'm not close at all with relatives, except for a couple but only because i'm forced to see them

    so yeah, i won't be keeping in touch with anyone but the mum when i'm completely estranged
    which isn't really a sad thing, it's the only way i can finally get closure.
