Scared Of Family

I am 36, married and have 3 kids. I also live in my in-laws basement because I am legally disabled due to mental issues and instability. I cannot mentally or emotionally be responsible for running a home. I have shut myself into my basement bedroom because I can't trust any of my in-laws I live with. I have lots of diagnosis, one of which is severe PTSD. A few months ago my father in-law promised to learn about it. A few weeks ago, he invited a unknown adult male to live in the house and come and go as he pleased. My sister in-law has told lies about me that I beat her up, to the entire family, none of them called my husband to question it. There is a lot of backstabbing, passive aggressive behavior and backhanded comments made to my children. My youngest starts Kindergarten tomorrow, the other two older children are in Jr. High, so I need to leave the house and go past everyone who is untrustworthy and mean everyday, multiple times a day. I don't know how to do it. I seem to be fine once I am away from them. I have worked hard to achieve that, but my anxiety is unbearably gigantic every time I think about going upstairs. It is that way even when I know they are all gone. HELP! How do I do this for a full school year???
