The holidays aren't always so happy for everyone.
Do you dread attending parties and gatherings alone? Do past memories of a loved one who is no longer around make you feel sad and depressed? Maybe you just don't feel like singing carols, hanging decorations, or shopping for gifts. Maybe it's just all too overwhelming.
For many, the holidays only intensify the grief and pain inside, and it can be difficult to be around others or to connect with the joy of the season.
If that's you today, tune in as we talk to Greif Counselor/Educator, Tonya Cunningham, Founder of Tonya Cunningham Ministries. Hear her story of grief, loss, and finally, redemption. It will give you hope!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Well... maybe not.
The holidays, with all their goodwill and cheer, may incite unpleasant memories and uncomfortable feelings for you. It's often during this time of year when the focus is all about giving, celebrating and togetherness that you may become more acutely aware of the voids in your life. Perhaps you've experienced a recent loss, such as the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of a job or an opportunity. Maybe it's not loss but loneliness that you feel, and no matter how many parties you attend or how many people you're around, you still feel disconnected.
If any of this describes you, then you need to tune in today. There is a way to unplug yourself from the dread of the holidays, and my guest, Licensed Psychotherapist, Nettie Jones, is here to help you learn to cope with the voids in your life, particularly during the holidays.

Welcome to Dance with Bipolar with Meg Dog and Doc Reimers, psychologist in NJ. Dance With Bipolar disorder is a talk show that views bipolar from a positive perspective. Meg Dog and I believe that you don’t have to fight your diagnosis or your family. The next few episodes are dedicated to helping you and your family members better manage emotions during the crazy holidays. Holidays force family members to interact with each other, sometimes re-igniting old family dynamics. It’s as if many of the feelings we have about our family lie dormant until the holidays hit us. We may feel like we are in a boxing ring with family members and relatives taking jabs at us. Don’t be knocked off your feet in “round 2” of the holidays. Call us and share what your family is like or any problems you believe you may encounter this holiday season. We will teach you a little about “emotional shadow boxing” so that the left hook won’t hurt at all.
