    Default Christmas...

    What christmas used to mean to me;
    fun, family, good food and great conversations!

    What it is today;
    The most sad depressing time in my life.

    We always spend christmas with my mums side of the family but the last 10 years have sucked. My grandma passed away a week before christmas 10 years ago and when the funeral was all done, everyone decided to try and kick my uncle out of my grandmas house so they could sell it and get money...
    My uncle and my mum fought tooth and nail for his right to continue to live there. So ive hated them all for trying to force family out on the street for a little bit of money (not one of them is hard done by).
    My dps family hate me because I stood up for myself and called them out on not treating me like family (they are all about family apparently....)

    This christmas my dad is getting knee surgery for the 2nd time and my mother is battling lung cancer for the 2nd time. My mums sister hasn't even called her to say they won't be coming for christmas this year they'll be in new york.
    I have no christmas cheer this year at all

    Oh wow that sucks I'm so sorry your parents are not well... I'm sure you must really miss your grandma around this time too. And as for extended family well "you can choose your friends but..."

    Wish I could cheer you up hun.

    Im sorry you are going through such a tough time, I'm sorry your parents aren't well either.

    I'm going through the same, I have for the past 7 yrs. My family lives on the other side of the world. And DH family pretend they are all about family too, but so far they do nothing but exclude me in the important things. I don't bother any more. since I live in Aus I have not been able to spend Xmas with my family in all those years, his family dont give a rats that I miss my family. Im not even allowed to partake in the xmas cooking this year- again.

    it sucks it's so onesided.

    Default Christmas...

    Big hugs. It's amazing how death can bring out the worst in families. My grandmother passed away last year and the s$&@ fight that has come about from her passing disgusts me. My poor mum is stuck in the middle of it as she is one of the executors of the will.

    I hope the day isn't too awful for you xx

    I hate Christmas as my family has my ex and kids over and ignores me.
