I am finally getting around to writing this. I almost didn’t write this because I thought these posts were not entertaining to you guys but then I ended up deciding to do it because I love looking back on a post like this to see what I did and how it was feeling on this day. Let’s just jump into the story time on how my Christmas was.
Anxiety wasn’t too bad I had a few panic attacks but it was okay. Ended up waking up around 5 a.m and I had a lot to do. I was cleaning, I was wrapping presents, I was planning my outfit for later that day. Didn’t have much downtime. Around 10 a.m. I brought my dad and my little sister into our living room and we open gifts. I didn’t want anything for Christmas I wanted to give gifts instead so that’s what I did. Surprised my dad and my little sister was stuff and I used my Christmas gift from my friend which was an Amazon gift card to buy them gifts because I’m broke. And my dad couldn’t afford to get gifts this year so I decided to do that for him. After that, I had to start getting ready. My grandmother goes to church every year for Christmas and we always go with her. going to a different Church than usual. This one was amazing and I enjoyed it so much. The one thing I hated about my other church was there was a huge there was like 5,000 people there and for my social anxiety just wasn’t fun. Plus this church has kind of turned into more political views so we went to a different church. That’s when I was no more than 50 people plus the pastor was someone I knew. He was the pastor that did my moms funeral so I knew him! He was amazing. After that, we went over to my grandma’s house like they do every year and we had dinner and open gifts It’s just a super fun time with family as we played board games and watch movies. Didn’t get home until close to midnight. I didn’t go to bed until like 2 am.
I didn’t get up until like 9:30 in the morning. It was nice to sleep in for a little bit. When I woke up I had to get ready because this Christmas was a little bit different. We usually go to my grandma’s house open gifts eat breakfast and then just hang out. This year my sister’s boyfriend’s family was coming over and we were doing lunch at my grandmother’s house. I’ve met his family before at Thanksgiving and they’re so sweet and I just love them but I was scared I guess. I don’t do change very well especially with my anxiety and so I had a pressure of people coming over. When I got to the grandma’s house I helped with making lunch, cleaning, and dealing with my stressed out sister! Then I gave m sister and her boyfriend their gifts before everyone came! They loved it and I loved what they got me! Then it was time o eat. Once everyone showed up I started to get more and more anxious. But when we started eating I do what I always do when I get really anxious I just stared down at one thing and zone everyone out. That one thing being the food I was eating. After lunch, I started to feel better and we played board games and watch tv and then It was time to go home. I didn’t get home till about 5ish and I was so tired but I had a lot to do. Then around 9ish, I was out for the night!
