    Christmas is getting me down and wanting to check out. My mother died in September. She was my main hold on staying alive. Now here I am really facing how alone I am. For myself Christmas will ever be the same. It came too soon after my mother's death.

    I'm sorry. It gets me down too because I'm not able to be with my family anymore on Christmas. It's a 6 hour drive and I don't feel safe driving that far with my mental condition. I haven't seen them in over two years.

    Oh dear I cannot put into words how sorry I feel for you right now. It must be a nightmare but think of it this way would she have wanted you to have a sad and empty christmas? I'm sure she wouldn't...I don't know what else to say but if you need anything we're right here for you.

    I had the same thing when my dad died.
    He died in the October and no one felt much like celebrating, so me, my son and my mum had a very low key and quiet Christmas which felt easier to handle than the usual family mayhem.
    I hope you can enjoy at least a peaceful Christmas.
