sick of the holidays already (warning)
« on: December 03, 2006, 11:45:16 AM »
So, we are all back here and I am sorry to be this way, but I am sooo sick of the holiday crap already!! I hate hearing every one telling me to have a Merry Christmas when all I can think of is this is Ben's 5th year away from us. I want to crawl in a hole and never come out. I want this life to be over. completely. sorry to whine but thats how it is for me. hope you all get through this and I apologize for upsetting anyone.

I agree I am sick of the holidays also. Christmas use to be such a happy time for us. Along with the memories is the never ending pain that my child isn't here. Right now the good memories of Christmas' past can't replace the pain of Christmas' present.

I am with you on this also.  I do not want to celebrate anything at all.  I just want my son back.

The holidaays used to be such a wonderful & magical time in our home.  That ended 7 years ago.  I wish I could crawl into a cave and hibernate until the end of January.

First, there are 2 radio stations in our area that begin playing Christmas carols the week of Thanksgiving and over and over until just after Christmas.  If that isn't enough to put one into a bad mood, there is the situation in the stores. People swearing, pushing, shouting, fighting, trampeling,etc.  What happened to Peace on Earth?

Then there is the commercialism. It has always bothered me - try to outdo each other to buy these ridiculous gifts that get tossed aside a week later.

Far worse, how about those video games?  How violent they are.  I can't believe those.  Plus there is the encouragement to attend company Christmas parties, down a few, and then drive home.  Grrrrrr!  Will they ever learn?

It disgusts me to see the real reason for the season being buried beneath a mountain of violent toys, angry people....

Where does it stop?

Love,
Dena, Josh's Mom

Agree with you all,

Once again I will not put up the tree, 2nd year without Jeff and then while everyone is enjoying boxing day sales, I will be sitting here wondering what I should be doing on Jeffrey's 23rd Birthday that he will not be celibrating.

My two remaining children I will send to their fathers for christmas, I have two weeks off, I will spend the holidays alone....and clean my house


I so wish Jeffrey was still here, nothing is the same
