I was Disowned by my entire family

All Alone... Can't Cope .  My parents were the first to disown me when, 5 yrs ago, I was labelled with bipolar.  I know it started when I was between 9 to 12 yrs old when my father's half brother sexual abused me and my parents did nothing.  I see all the times that my bipolar was out of control.  When my parents found out that I had bipolar (I even had my doctor write them a letter verifying that I have bipolar) 5 yrs ago, they believed that I was faking it and disowned me.  They slowing influenced my brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandmother, my children (I'm divorced).  So I'm completely alone because all my friends even left me.  A lot of the times I don't know how to deal with it.

I'm sorry you are going through this, I am in a similar situation where nobody in my family communicates with me. They say blood is thicker then water, but whoever coined that phrase didn't meet my family :) if you know in your heart that you don't deserve this treatment and your family were manipulated into cutting you off, then you need to stay strong and get back on your feet the best you can. Don't spend too much time feeling sorry for yourself, that won't get you anywhere. In time, somebody may reach out to you or perhaps you will bump into someone, you never know (anything is possible). If you never make up or have them back in your life, then so be it... you build your own life where their negative ways are no longer a part of it.

I really could use some advise.
