    Not the Biggest Fan...

    Christmas Is Sad.

    I just really don't have anyone to spend it with, everyone is either busy or away. My family's not exactly a very happy/close family so it's sad.

    During the season i often feel at my worst. There is just something that drains me of happiness at the time. Maybe it has something to do with my family and the way holidays go down.. i don't know. After the season is over i am often so depressed i can't do anything for a month...

    I love Christmas, But.

    . This will be the 3rd Christmas since I lost my dog and this time of year is hard for me because she loved Christmas. I used to make her dog cookies and just spend time with her, but now that she's gone it just isn't the same. I get to spend time with family, and we'll have a...

    Always.

    I am always sad at Christmastime. It's because I always spend it alone. I have very severe social anxiety & agoraphobia & am too afraid to spend Christmas with family because of that. My mom, whom I live with, always spends it with other family members. So I am always alone on...

    An Uncomfortable Time For Me

    I don't enjoy Christmas-time anymore.   Too many bad memories and frustrations to deal with.  In fact, the whole two-week period between Christmas and New Year is just something I have to get through, not a time of fun. When I was little we used to have good family Christmas...

    Christmas Sucks.

    All my life, Christmas just never seemed to have happy memories for me. My 9th and 10th Christmases saw me talking to one parent or the other while they were in the hospital. My 13th one saw me wishing my dad was still alive. . Last year, my wife and daughter were a thousand...

    Since I Was Young

    It is around this time of the year I get the most sick.  Around this time of the year, I'm quietly depressed for seemingly no reason.  From the age of 18 months until I was seven years old, I would break out in sores all over my body around this time of the...

    She was sad. Not sad to the point that she wanted to die. But sad enough that she couldn't fake a smile. Sad enough that tears did fall every now and then, and dried up too.
