I’m fairly certain that you are a member of my family, yes? Well written question.
To be quite honest, yes my family IS openly dysfunctional, there are far too many examples to give. The news segment on my family’s restaurant is one that is WELL documented (see for yourself: http://chicago-colorado.com/).
Aside from that, well, all families are bonkers, no matter how well of a show they put on for ‘normal’ people. My family opts out of that, choosing to just be forward with it. And I do mean forward.
