Lack of support

With the lack of support I've experienced from friends and especially family, I wonder how the support is for everyone else. With my family, they actively collude against me/spread lies about me with the intention of either suppressing me or saving their own rears from the liabilities that they had from witnessing, second-hand, the traumatic events I have been through. Does your friends and family know you have SA? Is there anyone you are able to trust implicitly? I hope that I am in the minority here. Though, unfortunately, I've learned the hard way that many people around me are very very corrupt and selfish.

My mom and grandma do. The rest of my family, save for a few cousins and aunts, couldn't give two s***s about me. I come from a very dysfunctional family, and we're not a close family. Add in that I seem to be the odd man out (never had a girlfriend, never been married, still in college at my age, don't have a job), and they treat me like I'm tainted or damaged. My uncle has even treated me like I'm mentally retarded, which made me really angry at one point. I felt like throwing something at him.

I would never get support from this family. I don't really have one.
