I have a multi-millionare sister who's husband works for Lockheed and she thinks I'm Anti-American and I've come unglued. Ironically she used to regularly send me money (without me asking) when I used to still live in my house. Now that I have relocated and she doesn't know where I live...I no longer get her charity. My parents and other sister are also both wealthly but again, they think I'm Coo Coo for Cocoa puffs so I have broke all connections from them too.
About a year ago my wife and I tried to move in with my parents for and extended stay until we got our feet on the ground again. But I shit you not, my own mother told me she could not live with someone that wanteded to live the truth. She yelled at me and said "I'M OLD AND I DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH!" I told her I understood. I mean really, I do get that. Being lied to for your whole life is sobering.
My Dad gave me $1000 cash and ask my wife and I to leave. It was the most surreal thing I've ever experienced. I have not seen, spoken to, emailed, or communicated with any of my immediate family since that day. Oddly, that break melted even MORE stress off my back.
