How are people feeling during this festive season?

Hello everyone. I hope you are having an easier time than I am! Hope you don’t mind me sharing my woes with you. I had planned to visit my mother (who has dementia) and my sister who lives with her as her carer on Boxing Day. I was in tears Christmas Day evening, dreading Boxing Day, because I find it SO hard to make the journey and see them in such distressing circumstances. Boxing Day morning I just knew I didn’t have the physical or emotional strength required and so had to cancel. Now my sister has been in tears, saying that the only thing that got her through Christmas Day was the thought that she was going to see me on Boxing Day - now I feel even worse and under even more pressure to see them! Help! Thinking of you all. Willow X
