Well... having no friends or extended family I don't have a lot of personal experience with this sort of thing. But this strikes me as being a matter of establishing & enforcing personal boundaries. As you can imagine, there are lots of articles in PsychCentral's archives on the subjects of boundaries & how to handle toxic people. Here are links to some of them:

Also... family therapist, Kati Morton, has a video on her YouTube channel on the subject of boundaries. Here's a link to that video:
