Not really a question, but very depressed. Need to vent!

I am going through divorce, and I am very sad that I had to share my son on a day that we should have spent as a family. I know my hubby asked for a divorce, but it came at a very horrible time (I know these things can't be controlled) And on top of that my family is really horrible to be around....I sometimes can't be around them especially now that I am going through this mess. They don't seem to care or understand...when I am depressed I usually like to handle things on my own. Sadly I am living with me parents till my job starts up and I can get my own place. To make matters worse this separation/divorce is making my son lash out towards me...he is being awful. Ugh sorry I just needed to get it out....

  • My dear hang in there. Charma is excellent at always presenting itself, and he is absolutely wrong for doing this during the holidays.
    secondly, Even though it is hard, DO NOT allow your kid to disrespect you EVER. You are the adult and mom.
    Lastly, Hang in there, is there a friend you can go to for a day or two? Is there a way you can get away even for a weekend to clear your thoughts?

  • I hate xmas because it makes things worse for people. I do not know why, but the holidays usually just make people sad......

  • Thank you everyone for all the great posts! I am watching Scrooged and doing a bit better on my own :) I agree it does make it worse for people especially when all the Christmas movies are about "love" and "marriage" Boo to that right now :P
