    In As Much As...

    I've never really had a family... I've been fending for myself, basically since I was seven. I live alone, no family visits or calls. Haven't heard from them in a long time... Don't really know how my brothers are. They don't care how I am... My family are my friends.

    I Dont Really Have Any Family

    Correction

    I believe "family" has a lot more to do with relationships rather than sharing some similar DNA and I don't have relationships with a ******* one of these people.
