Worst Christmas

I haven't been as attentive to my blog as I'd like to be, but this Christmas has been a nightmare. I can't go into details; I'd like to save the integrity of my family that is what is left of any integrity. I grew up in a home that was dysfunctional. Now as a 25 year old woman I know that all families are dysfunctional. However, the pain of my childhood just won't let me grow up. I'm in Ohio and Ive got good mind to leave several days early to to home. I'll keep this post short as I'm sure it's annoying to read this with only a skeleton of the whole story. Please just keep me in your thoughts.

Don't know the whole story, but if things get too intense over the next few days, know that you have at least one friend in town. Let me know if you need to get away for a few hours for lunch, drinks, shopping or whatever. Believe me, I've been there...

thank you for your support, fellow c-bus wife. I really appreciate that. As it turns out I might cut this trip shorter than planned to prevent myself from being damaged.

Keep your head up!! No family is perfect, and although I'm sure whatever I say won't make things better right now, just know that you're not alone!

All families drive each other bananas. It will be okay. Just be careful on the road. Holidays are always stressfull at one time or another.

See if you can grab ahold of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Chrismtmas Trilogy and read the stories and listen to the music. It will help alot! (Rock-classical fusion) It puts things in perspective real quick.

Isn't it annoying that even when you are supposedly a grown up, that your family drama is still so upsetting? I always thought it would be easier to dismiss/deal with that stuff when I was older....hang in there and know we love you!

My family too has serious drama. I'm sorry that you're dealing with this during your Christmas break. Keep your chin up and know that you have a loving chef at home. I had some drama last year that was really hard to deal with...and this is another reason why I chose to be alone at Christmas this year.

Good luck, dear.
