Christmas, et cetera

12-25holidays_720.jpg

Your DGB for today is to reach out to someone who might be hurting during the holidays, or for help yourself if you need it.

The winter holidays can be a tough time for lots of people. Madison Avenue is peddling impossibly perfect holiday memories, stress is high, money is low, families are deeply imperfect, and the daily news from the Trumpocalypse doesn’t help at all. For those with mental illness, suffering from loss, or just in a bad place in life, it can be excruciating. Do you know anyone like that? Is it you?

If you know of anyone who might be struggling, please give them a visit, a call, or a text. If you’re struggling and don’t know who to call, try one of these hotlines: http://www.buddy-project.org/hotlines

You’re not alone. None of us are. Hugs and hot chocolate from the Daily Grab Back crew to all of you. Happy Holidays and hopes for a brighter New Year.
