    Oh No! The Holidays are Here Already?

    in Self Help

    It’s hard to believe that November is here and the 2015 Holiday Season is upon us! 

    Do you suffer from the Holiday Blues?  If so, you're not alone. The holidays can be a difficult time for most people!  However, you don't have to let it trouble you! 

    Have you ever asked yourself, "What is my relationship to the holidays?" If you haven't, it might be a good time to ponder this very question.  Many of us have a positive relationship to Thanksgiving and Christmas. We focus on the love, affection, and closeness we feel for our family and friends.  Others may experience the "holiday blues" and are plagued by thoughts of loneliness, suicide, family conflict, and even depression.  Wherever you find yourself, it's important that you inquire:

    What does a healthy relationship to the holiday season look like for me?
    How can I experience a stress-free Thanksgiving and Christmas (e.g., Holiday Season)?

    Becoming aware of your relationship to the holidays and choosing to create a positive relationship to the holidays is a first step towards creating joy and contentment for yourself during an otherwise stressful time.  Join us for an engaging discussion on how you can have a healthy, productive, and stress-free holiday season!

    This is I.T. (Inconvenient Truth)!!! – Planning for the Holidays

    Hey everyone! I know life is crazy with the holidays coming up! With the holidays, that typically means traveling! Traveling can be hard for people like us, so if you have any good tips that get you through a flight or road trip, please share them!! Happy Holidays and Safe travels for everyone.

    For me personally, I try to stay as comfortable as possible in the car or airplane by wearing comfy clothes and bringing a pillow. I'm also not against melatonin or anxiety medicine before traveling! It helps me stay relaxed And with that... I'm off on my 4 hour drive back to Dallas! —By Ally Zinsmeister.

    Jaclyn Drexel—I always take tums everywhere when I travel. The vibrations activate mast cells (I have Mast cell activation disorder, which is common with RSD) and so when those cells release histamine I will get anything from heart burn to nausea to rashes/hives. The Tums helps with the heartburn and nausea and benadryl or zyrtec help with rashes and nausea as well.
    I also plan time into my schedule to rest. My family knows that the first day after travel I WILL be sleeping or at least curled up in bed with minimal exertion.

    Lastly I always travel with a pillow and my meds on my person and never checked! This helps decrease stress and the possibly losing them.
