Usually Christmas is my favourite time of year but it can sometimes turn out to be just non stop family drama. My grandmother is staying with my family for Christmas this year. She can be very rude and I know she will likely comment on the fact that I have gained weight. I am not looking forward to Christmas at all. I wish my grandmother wasn't coming because I hate having to worry about what rude thing is going to come out of her mouth next. I suffer from chronic depression and anxiety. All I want to do is relax and enjoy the holidays but I feel I can't. None of my students are nearly as rude as she can be - and that is saying something. I know there are worse things in the world but when my mind gets stuck in a loop, it's stuck in a loop.
