I am not an educated person by any means. What I know is mostly life lessons. But I dont think it takes someone with a degree and a lot of unimportant letters behind their name to figure this one out. Christmas or any major holiday for people suffering with depression or so many other mental health issues is a big trigger. A huge wick that once lit sets off so many horrible things for them. We literally explode with negative emotions and thoughts. So why then hasnt any of these so called professionals come up with a temporary med or a coping method that they can offer us for these times of the year? Or at the very least a signed letter stating that we do not have to participate for health reasons? "Hey, you all ready for the holiday?" "Oh Hell no, I dont have to do them anymore. Got a signed note from the doc and everything!!"" Wow that would make life so much simplier!!!!
