I'm a single mother of two boys, we're spending Christmas with my parents so I haven't had to do much in the way of preparation which is good as I don't think I would have coped. These last few weeks have been unbearable, I've barely been able to function. I didn't put up any decorations this year and have sent no cards to anyone. My entire house is a mess and I'm just falling apart. I just want Christmas to be over but then I feel guilty because of the boys. I've spent the first few days of their school holiday in bed while they've played on the Xbox. I had loads of plans and bought craft things to do with them, but I've done none of it. I just can't. But the guilt and anxiety about ruining Christmas for them just makes it worse. It's a vicious circle that I can't get away from. I don't know what to do. I'm dreading tomorrow. Having to get up n dressed n pretend that I care all day. I don't know if I can do it. Is there anyone else that's struggling with this time of year or any suggestions of how I can get through this?
