Christmas

Post by Apricot on Wed Dec 24, 2014 3:02 am

Often such a  notoriously hard and lonely time of year for a great many people. Even when with others, we can still feel alone.
Perhaps the pressure that the season brings also can amplify feelings we have.

A really important time for us to nurture ourselves as much as we are able, perhaps in time reading a book, or having a walk in nature. Remembering many out there have the hardest time this time of year, for many different reasons.

My best wishes go out to everyone in the depression/christmas struggle boat.

Keep  Calm... It will soon be next year and things will be back on a somewhat more even keel that this immediate period of christmas new year brings.

I hope everyones day will be as happy and good as can be no matter how you spend it.

Hi, I'm finding this a difficult time too, always have. I feel it's not appropriate to discuss how I feel with people during this time.

Not really sure what to say, I'm new on here, just wanted to make contact.

I feel like the Grinch stole my Christmas. My "gifts" this year were a brand new Kidney stone, and a very suspicious breast lump!.
Thankfully I went onto Citalopram in September, which turned the lights on in my dark tunnel, but i"m still in the tunnel, and I now think I may be heading for the biggest crash ever.
I went to my GP, who gave me Codeine for the kidney stones, but it's not bad enough yet for a referral to the hospital, ans my urgent biopsy request must have got tangled up in the hospital Christmas parties.

For those who don't know my history, I had a major kidney stone attack just after my suicide attempt 4 years ago, both of which got seriously stuffed up by the hospital. And my sister died of breast cancer not long after.

So yes, thank you, I had a lovely relaxing Christmas, and I am looking forward to the New Year with eager anticipation! NOT!!!

welcome to new members. I will say happy new year.
Im glad the holiday period is over personally, life to me feels a little easier when things begin to seem quieter.

Suems, So sorry and hope things will be soon sorted for you and that you have kind caring people working with you. My thoughts are with you.

Lets all keep on keeping on.
