I love christmas cause all the bright lights and tinsel that adorn places that are usually so dull. I love passing by houses that have trees in the window and all looks so cosy. People are also more friendly - or is that my imagination? I know this is capitalism gone crazy time.... But....

I also hate this time of year cause for me it is also a knife edge. I love family - or the idea of it , but every time I do the right thing by going home it always triggers a bad episode. This year I decided to stay put despite the consequences . I'll miss everyone, but I'll be safe from harm.

I know folks here say family is important in helping us deal with our illness - but it depends on if you got a shit family or not. This year I'm looking forward to waking up - whenever time - and going for a walk in empty streets. If that makes sense?

Enjoy the space and Happy xmas to all

I know exactly what you mean, i'm ALWAYS triggered too - so for me I find it's best to spend it alone. Have a nice chilled out day! x
