Hi Sunshyne, I agreee with you that Christmas can be a stressful and lonely time. I cant help thinking about my Dad, Brother, Gran, and my Mum has senile dementia and is in a world of her own. She should be in a Nursing Home but we cannot afford it. I live in Ireland and it would cost £800 per week. We have to try and look after her as best we can. It is not easy as she is in bed now all the time. She was widowed when she was only 48 and is now 78.She never got over my Fathers death as they were very close and then my brother died a few years ago at this time only 42. I pray that God will help you and me and everyone else who find Christmas a time of stress. Just do what you can.I am not going to ruin my health this year as you get no thanks in the long run. God Bless, MARY.
