Even if you are self-diagnosing and fall within the so called normal range of things. That doesn’t make your way of communicating your thoughts and feelings less valid. If people don’t listen to you and ridicule you then of course you don’t want to express yourself to them. Your family seems especially good at denying feelings and telling you your thoughts and needs are invalid.
There are a lot of parents out there who are very bad at teaching their children how to understand what they feel and much less express those feelings.
