I guess you could say so. My DH & my dad's side of the family are really the only people the I trust and am 100% comfortable with. I have to remain on eggshells around everyone else I know, but my family and I have all always been completely close and comfortable with one another. I typically avoid everyone on my mother's side. It's like they just look for things to start a big controversy over. You really have to watch what you say, or what they twist it into will spread like wildfire and you'll be defending yourself for ages. DH's family is the same way. It's infuriating. Even when you are standing completely still, you'll step on toes. So, I really don't trust or feel comfortable with any of them and will never, ever leave my baby with any of them at any point in time ever. Unfortunately, my paternal family is like almost 400 miles away, so that leaves us with NO sitters. =/ But I'd rather never have a sitter than to leave my baby with someone I can't trust (or stand).

I have issues with trust but most of the time its that I am too trusting and naive like with my sons father. Although when it comes to my son and who I leave hm with it takes a long time for me to trust someone. I need to find someone to watch him 2-4 days a week because daycare is way too expensive and I can't make the leap and hire someone so guess I will stay with 600 a month for two days of care a week. I mean it is nice to be able to drop him off at daycare if I have stuff to do or want to work overtime.
Who I trust most : my DH. I used to have severe trust issues with him but I was young and trusted no one. Him and I have been through everything in the 13 years we've been together and it finally feels good to trust someone as much as I trust him.
Who I the least : my in-laws (dhs mother's side not his fathers side) and my youngest brother.
I trust only my DH, I do trust my MIL and my mom but differently, I raised my 3 siblings at a very young age because my mom was a drug addict(we JUST reconciled in Dec 2010 now that sh is clean)so I was the only one I could ever trust until I met DH at 16
Matt(37)DH & soulmate for 14yrs (V-Feb 20/08 * VR-Feb 18/11)
5 time HG survivor , AP Mama to 5 GIRLS & a BOY due Feb 2015
I have major trust issues because I am OCD and have major control issues so idk if those are actually trust issues. LOL. If it came down to it I would trust DH with my life it's the little things I'm leary of. Like sending him to the store for diapers and trusting that he will come home with the right stuff. LOL.
I do not trust DHs family. Especially MIL she is judgemental, negative and immature. I would never tell her my secrets. But I do trust her with DD (in short spurts).
