Posted the same on Facebook myself this morning. Lots of people, consciously or otherwise, share how happy and festive family life is for them this time of year which is no crime but can carry a lot of weight in itself. For lots of people, myself included, this can be the loneliest time of year so I always delete my apps for a week from today.Christmas can be a hard time for people so anyone struggling with hope it goes well and ye get through it.
My worst spell with depression was at Christmas a couple or years ago.
One recommendation to anyone who finds it tough is stay of social media even if it is for only a few days. Looking at others posting up about their perfect lives with no problems can be too much. Even if it most of it is only a front.
Hope everyone here struggling knows to talk to someone or pop on here for a chat & a distraction.
