Who do you consider your family?

I'm starting to feel like my friends are more like family then my relatives. My mother has been ill and living with me for a while. She is refusing visitors which isn't any different then when she was well and living on her own. Her siblings are not welcomed to visit and it's putting a strain on my relationship as well. My aunts and uncles will not come visit me and my kids because they cannot see my mother. * let me just clarify that I have never said they cannot visit my home. I've only ever said that my mother is not taking any visitors. So when I have company her door is shut and she takes a nap or just rests.

She says she loves them but they don't respect her decisions in life.

Blood family will be there but you didn't choose them. I consider my best friend more of a sister because we chose each other

 My best friends (male and female) are my family, DD calls then aunty and uncle. I have 3 blood sisters that I haven't seen DD since she was 1 year old because they alienated me.

My mom, friends and SO are her family on my side.

My ex is part of my family, he is more family then most of my family. There's also my mom, brother, sister,1 aunt,1 uncle, 3 cousins, and my ex's sisters. I am closer to my ex's sisters then I am to my own.
