This is my last favorite holiday. I’m already on edge and trying to calm. Family parties tend to trigger me and I’m pressured into going which adds stress. I may just say forget it and not go. But then I don’t want to be alone; scared to be alone in this state. Later is fireworks which sends me of the edge. Every fourth I have an episode for the past 5 years. I know I shouldn’t expect one but it makes me more nervous. If I don’t participate I’ll be alone which could be worse like last year. I just started on new medicine (navine) and it doesn’t help at all yet. Sorry for this being so long. Just starting to freak out.
Does anyone else have anxiety and things on holidays? Or any tips? Thanks.
