If you click on the link above, it will take you to a very long-running thread about toxic families and how to survive them. It may seem a bit overwhelming to you if you are new to Mumsnet, but perhaps you could read a few bits of it?
Yes, you will; there are plenty of Topics on Mumsnet where these issues - to do with toxic families - are discussed. For example, in Relationships; and in Mental Health. It's fantastic that you love and adore your baby, and that he makes you happy - congratulations!
