Good evening all!
Thanksgiving 🦃 has passed and Christmas 🎄 will soon be here.
This is always a very difficult time for me. I have too many bad memories - enough that they often outweigh my good memories.
Being single and 69 years young, there are times when I am overwhelmed with loneliness.
Over the years I have tried to make new and positive traditions for myself. And, my involvement with Church and my spiritual life is a major help.
My parents are both living, 91 and 95 years old. They are a bit over 200 miles from where I live and are in an assisted living facility. Though I know they are safe there, there is much that I do to take care of things for them. And, I do visit them.
At the same time, most of my bad memories of Christmas are from when I was growing up.
I see a therapist regularly and see a psychiatrist for my medications.
Thanksgiving goes well for me as I spend it with my best friend and his family and 2 crazy greyhounds.
But, now it is the lead up to Christmas. One minute I am happy listening to Christmas music and the next I am falling apart.
In any case, I know I am not alone in having difficulties with the holidays. And, I want to say WE WILL GET THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS!
Sending prayers and love to you all!
Never give up!
How are you doing today?
Thank you so much for sharing. The holidays can be a tough time for many. It can be hard to connect with people during a this time when it seems like everyone is bubbling around and you are not in the same mood. I admire you for reaching out and sharing your struggles with the Carenity community.
I hope you have more sing-a-longs than sadness this holiday season!
