Truth during the holidays

Thanks Roy, I think lots of us tend to have this problem. I know I do. Iunintentionally made myself sick one year because I was expected to attend my ex's family holidays and they usually have 100+ people attend. I didn't end up going because I was so worried about it that I was throwing up from the stress and worry. Thankfully mycurrentpartner has a very small family but it is still really hard to be in the same room with all the underlying currents of past and currentissues covered up by a smile. One person in particular there likes to say rude things to your face and then laugh like it is a joke and not offensive in the least. Everyone has to work around this person and everyone suffers forher comfort. She likes the windows open everychristmas tooso all the rest of us freeze while she is comfortable. It is usually around -35 to -45 celcius here at christmas so that is just ridiculous not to mention costly for the host in heating.
