Hosts Laurie Ann Smith and Elizabeth Brawley are joined by Author, Advocate and survivor Lynn C. Tolson, "Beyond The Tears, A True Survivors Story" tonight. Join them as they discuss different ways to survive the holiday madness within the dysfunctional home at holiday times. How do you deal with grief over never having had a "Normal" holiday like the kids down the street? How can you walk in peace when chaos reigns? Can "fun" be had at Christmas, New Years & other family centered celebratory times when our families of origin are clearly dysfunctional and could care less who gets what or even keeps to the holiday traditions of gathering? Join Laurie, Elizabeth and Lynn as they exchange ideas and ways that helped them to make it through the muck and at least enjoy some of the holiday happiness. Sometimes that may mean starting your own traditions. Calls and comments are always welcome & we ask you to please be polite due to the sensitivity of subject material & our listeners. Thanks!
