    I've not spoken to my relatives in over a year.

    Now I start to birthdays and big holidays as the time they feel it is appropriate to 'drop a line' but also taking the opportunity to instill some guilt about nonsense. I guess next step would be to change my email address. I stopped talking to them because of too much drama...

    My family drama is INSANE !

    But it's even more crazy that they all think I'm disloyal and not trustworthy because I side with the truth and what's right rather than family. I'm not gonna lie because ur my family. Then I have that on my conscience. My loyalty lies with the truth and they hate it.
