A day of reduced anxiety levels... Anxiety is for life, not just for Christmas! But also, on a less selfish note, I want what little family I have not to be worried about me on the day. I can't deal with the group visits or meals so stay home alone on the day which doesn't bother me at all, I never could cope well with xmas day but pushed through it before for their benefit until I could no longer do it. I really hate the thought that they might be thinking about me with their own perceptions on the day though. I understand most people like being with other people and eating together etc, but it really doesn't bother me that I'm not. I just want them to enjoy themselves instead.
As an individual I stood alone.As a member of a group I did things.As part of a community I helped to create change!
