Oh you guys, I moved to this big city to be close to my family and so I could
go to holiday events.
Now they're starting. YES. NOW.
This week a birthday 4 2
Next week Thanksgiving
The next week a birthday for 4 3!
Then a birthday for my grandaughter, age 4
Then Christmas Eve
Then Christmas day

Oh ... Too too much. I spend so much time in seclusion. Padding around the
house. Watching TV. Sleeping..... you know.

My muscles are tight. My neck hurts double and I want to hide from the world.
P.S. My family is not all that big. It's just that everybody was born in November
or December. shakehead
I wish I could be merry & gay. shocked
Oh you know - gay in what sense you may ask?
Gay in this sense
smilewinkgrin !!
Although ANY kind of gay is good - Speak of rambling!

Aw Pam, take a big deep breath and remember why you moved there again. Then go get some muscle relaxers, fix you a nice moist towel in the micro wave and sit down and have a glass of tea. Just try to chill out as much as you can. Its so hard during the holidays, we have December birthdays and they can be murder if I let them be. I focus on one event at a time to keep from being overwhelmed. Hugs, Susie

In my family, we group birthdays together. That way rather than having a family party every time someone has a birthday, we have a family party for the fall birthdays, the winter birthdays, the spring birthdays, and the one summer birthday. My family is small too, but even so, we'd be having parties all the time if we celebrated each birthday individually, not to mention all the holidays, and random family gatherings! I love my family dearly, but there is only so much I can take of them. As it is we usually have family over just about every weekend during the summer.

I'm sorry you are hurting tonight Pamela. Try to enjoy your family, but I know it can be hard sometimes when you are hurting & you are all "famlied out" from seeing everyone so often!

omg ... I came here to delete my post.
I see that it's too late.
Sometimes when you get real it's good, I guess.
I appreciate your words Straydog Susie and Skeye ...
You guys caught me in a real panic attack.
It feels pretty good to be understood.
Hugs & Sobs.
