I am at my wits end and don't know what to do.

You are seeing now what is already starting to happen by doing so. It most likely won't get any better. I tried that route and over the years have lost everyone right down to my grandmother having turned on me. It's always the disruptive ones that are coddled by the other family members and have no respect for what you do and your own sanity. It's pretty much a package deal. In the end though I have realized that I don't need ANY of that. Just keep doing what is best for you.

Sometimes it is impossible to have a civil relationship with others.
