Why won't my relavites believe anything I say about my generalized anxiety disorder? They will not believe certain negative things I do is because of my disorder. Why won't people get that through their thick skulls?? I even sent them e-mail web-sites about my disorder. All I get in return is the silent treatment. I am so fed up and hurt. They show no interests in me. Iam totally ignored. I feel disowned and unaccepted. I tried explaining my conditipn and they just won't buy it. I haven't said any lies. I am having a very hard time coping. It's hard for me to ignore them like they are me. Please, I need advice, any kind of help is appreciated.Answer Question

Show them records,notes, or prescriptions from your diagnosing doc if you really want them to believe you. That should shut them up.

Don't you have an official diagnosis? If you do, then you should have something that would prove that you have this disorder. If you are diagnosed with a disorder that causes you to do things, then showing proof that you have that disorder would help back up what you are telling your relatives.

Websites don't prove that you have this disorder. It shows that there is such a disorder, but doesn't prove you have it. Do you or don't you have a doctor's diagnosis stating that you have this disorder?

We were typing at the same time. lol
If you have all this proof. Then you are right. If they don't believe you that's their problem and not yours. You can't force them to accept it or you. Maybe you are better off without them involved in your life. It sounds like they have more of a negative affect on you than positive.
