I am not manic so I have no reason to stay away from my family on Christmas yet I know it is going to be stressful and that is making me think twice about spending time with them.
I know I cannot stay away because I am sure they want to see me and will not understand that I am concerned about triggers.
Maybe what I can do is to go late in the day when perhaps some of the stress has died down and have a short visit. I know I must check in with myself throughout the visit so I will know when things are starting to get away from me.
Does anyone else get stressful when they are spending time with family on a holiday? Are there things that trigger you?
Please share with us.
Be as happy on the holiday as you can. It’s another day, that we are blessed to be alive.
love to all,
