Christmas with only my two boys was wonderful. (My parents went to Costa Rica for the holidays.) We had a great Christmas morning. My kids loved their gifts even if they only received only a few. Both my kids repeatedly said that this was a great Christmas. Here is where things went wrong. VIDEO games! I gave a new video game to my 16 and 19 year olds sons. It was some shooter game. Because it was Christmas I allowed the boys to play it on the big t.v. downstairs. It was Christmas, the last thing I wanted to do was banish my boys upstairs. I wanted us to be together even if it meant listening to a video game endlessly for hours and "Mom, watch this...." Well, by lunch I was so overstimulated that I had to go upstairs. The noise and game had gotten the best of me. I climbed into bed. Everything was hurting. The room was too light, any noise even the barely audible hurt my ears, the pillow hurt my head etc. It was a case of classic case of CFS video game overstimulation. I laid there for about an hour just miserable. I finally fell asleep for about an hour. By then my body had settled down. I was able to return to my boys. I then talked my boys into watching a movie together. I was still having a problem with noise and light but watching a movie was much better than a video game. I allowed my son to pick out a movie on Netflix. He decided on a North Korea Documentary. Kids always surprise you. I was sure it would be some action adventure. My kids are growing up. It was a great Christmas.
