crazy stress at work (long)

I work for a small company of less than 10 people. Half of the employees/owners are actually related to each other in some way or another. everyone is friendly and behave like they are part of a family.. but I feel really out of place.
The main reason is because I actually hate my job. I can't quit and the reasons are too long & complicated to explain. Because of the family-like setting, I feel pressured to be that way as well.
My coworkers are not bad people, but they are not the kind of people I would normally become friends with. In fact, of my employers actually stresses me out alot. She is our sales person and she behaves like a stereotypical sales person. Our office is small so she yells across hallways and through walls to make short conversations. She uses hallways as chat/gossip time. She'll sometimes walk in and interrupt my conversations about work with another co-worker. Because we are "family", things like these are overlooked.
This one person is just an example of the kind of stress I have at my job. On especially bad days, I relapse on my bulimia. I really hate dealing with it that way. Any suggestions as to how I can deal with this in a healthy way?
