Seasons Greetings.

To everyone @ the forums, especially anyone doing it tough this Christmas, big fat hugs. I'm having a "down" moment, but here's to 2015 being not just better, but brilliant.

Big fat hugs to you as well.  Kinda with you on the down moment, but maybe you should do what I did... turn on the worst arrangement you can find of "little drummer boy" and take solace in the fact that you're not one of those wretched souls who work at Macy's and have to listen to that all day.  (my apologies if there are any readers who actually work at Macy's).

Definitely a downer of a christmas here... I'm struggling in many ways dealing with my new dx, stress and work, and the holidays.  Hosting a big family dinner christmas day, and no one knows yet.  I know they'll all be supportive (my sister-in-law's brother, who will be here xmas day, has lived with HIV since 89) but I just feel like it's not the time or place... I want everyone to enjoy each other's company and not make it about me. 

Also, some very close friends coming over tonight... our daughters are the same age and have been best friends since preschool.  The mom was killed in a horrific accident this past summer... it has been so difficult and we are all still grieving.  Kinda puts my plight in perspective.

But worst of all, 3 feet of snow has fallen on Vail over the last 2 days, and I'm stuck at home working.

Happy Holidays
