I’m aware of how daunting it is to read on “help posts”. It’s not something you don’t already know. It’s more like- I know I have to do this but it’s particularly difficult to do and makes me even more exhausted-. I feel that way too but read this anyway.
Whether you live with a mental health problem or not, Christmas can be a really stressful time of year. The temptation to indulge in travels, food and drinks, the pressure to socialise with family and friends, and of course the financial strain that presents and celebrations can put on your finances. So, while the holidays might be considered the most wonderful time of the year, they can be a difficult and stressful time too. This period can be a particularly vulnerable time for those with emotional wellbeing or mental health challenges like myself. We tend to be overwhelmed with everything going on around us and even the little we find ourselves doing, we end up feeling pressured because all we want is a “normal period”.
