I am bipolar and the holidays are one of my triggers. It's some thing I can't just turn off. Thanksgiving pretty much makes me nuts. My family is pretty laid back and organized. Dinner is planned, we discuss what to bring, when to show up. In laws are the complete opposite. So that makes me more frantic. I have tried for years to help get things organized so every one participates and no one is left out. However, no one ever follows through with the things they say they will do, or cook; and no one ever shows up on time or helps clean up. If they would just help out I'd be thrilled. As for Christmas, we can't buy for every one but no one will agree to drawing names so we can participate in gift giving, too. I feel like I should just stay home so I don't bring down any one else. I always have a good time at my own home with our kids, but that's the only time I'm calm. Any tips?
