I have been through a lot in life too, which helps me to be able to empathize with situations, thoughts and feelings that we have. Sometimes, it's not easy just being human.

to go without contact with your entire family can be really tough. Camping is one of these situations. I've been before and got extremely homesick the first day, but as i went on it was a great trip! you just have to make the best with what, and who you have with you!
I'm in the process of trying to do this. My in-laws have left me in a state of severe emotional distress for the last five years. I have hardly slept that entire time and I'm exhausted. My husband is fully supportive of me making this choice, and I respect his decision to NOT cut his parents off (even though he said he would like to, he can't bring himself to. I would never push him to make either decision, it is his own choice to make). Anyway, I have made the decision, and I'm going to ignore their very existence from this day on. But I don't know how to deal with this emotional distress that's been destroying my stability for five years now. I don't expect it will be magically cured by cutting them off, but I do hope it will help at least a bit. So since I'm in the midst of this, perhaps I'm at a similar stage to the person who asked the original question. I'm following this closely to see the input from those who have gone no-contact a long time ago, because I really need to know how well they healed (or not).
