I'm not sure how to write all that I'm thinking/feeling. I

I'm not sure how to write all that I'm thinking/feeling. I am doing all I've been taught to do to get through these rough moments and I'm still stressed and discouraged. I think a lot of the stress is because of the upcoming holidays. Thanksgiving is next week and I'm not meeting up with family. Too much stress in those "relationships" and I am not going to put up with the disrespect anymore. I planned to meet up with friends and they're bailing on me so that's discouraging. I am afraid of doing some things on my own cuz I'm afraid of being physically attacked/stolen from, etc. and being all alone...bleh. I'm done w/ school in a few weeks and my sister wants me to visit her and help her with her new baby (just delivered last week) and I can't right now... I think that'd be bad for my mental health. I'm SO afraid of pissing her off more and damaging the relationship but if I go, I'm afraid I'll snap... can't win either way. I'm not excited about Christmas either. This same sister is throwing a hissy fit about Christmas gifts. I tried drawing boundaries on this so there have been some changes but she is wanting me to spend more money on her and her husband to get them gifts. I am not sure how to draw this boundary. I SO hate the whole gift crap on Christmas. Also, I met w/ my dr last week and they want me to get my heart looked at... what?! I'm trying to eat healthy, exercise, etc. and my body is being dumb now on top of all the social/psychological drama? I've gained weight so you know how that goes, confidence deteriorating. I'm doing yoga and trying to do meditation but that's almost back firing cuz I want to look good while doing it... haha, wanting the results w/out the work.

I agree, send the baby something and the baby doesn't care how much it costs. My family just give the young kids gifts and maybe my parents. We have given something the Christmas tree ( would pick names and would give the ornament to the name we picked. and gifts for the small kids). Now we just give a card to the adults and something for the small kids. ? So maybe a nice Christmas card or/and something for the tree or table. ? I wonder if a bunch of us could do a zoom for thanksgiving ?
something quick.
