10. I don't question they may not know the extent but they know enough
to know there is a problem. There are rare cases, where it can be hidden from everyone but those are rare. It is more often the case people, including friends and family, close their eyes and ears to the problem convincing themselves it is not that bad and claim not to have known, imo.
