Holiday Blues here…
Is anyone feeling down this time of year? Normallly i am excited for Christmas but this year I feel so down. I have 2 kids so for them, I try to be happy and do things but I hide how sad I feel.
I did lose my parents 2 years ago, I had an accident that left me physically handicapped 3 years ago so finances are tight. I work, but 100% of my pay goes towards bills. My husband had a stroke so he can’t work. We agreed to do no gifts or “need” items like hygiene. I am fine with that, it is not about stuff for me, but being blessed with those I have in my life.
So I just don’t know how to get out of this funk. I did talk to a walk in psychologist who said economy is tough and everyone feels that way. I have no other family. My friends are not in this country this year due to work changes. So I guess I just feel really down and I want to change that.
I don’t know how. I am pushing myself to make a small dinner on Christmas eve because we always have a dinner, but it seems everyone in our home feels like they want to skip it.
