Why do people question my answer?

I've no family - well apart from DD. So naturally, she's only got me.

This is obviously painful.

So why do people make you repeat the statement - honest question?

'Have you any family who can help?'
'No.'
'No-one?'

It's as if they want further details or you must be lying ... I don't understand it?

Really? I would think the answer is obvious. Because most people have families.

Yep, this.

I don't have a lot of family, but I do have some family. Most people do. Most people tend to have someone they connected with at one point in their life or another and consider family, as in a close friend. It is a little unusual so people will ask questions about it. I'm sorry that you don't have anyone.

I don't have any family in the same city.
But I have friends that I love more than my family.

It's not something they're used to hearing.
