Mental Health & Christmas

Mental Health & Christmas

"Mental Health & Christmas Living with any mental health illness makes the most mundane of days difficult.

In the years since I developed PTSD and depression I’ve found the lead up to Christmas and New Year a particularly difficult time to deal with.

The seemingly forced jolly feelings everywhere, the insane shoppers fighting over the sprouts, services closing down for the holidays and disrupted routines seem to exacerbate the already tentative hold on normalcy I have.

The feelings of despair, irrational fears and cloak of sadness seem to crowd ever closer whilst those around me prepare to celebrate."
