I am reaching out for some guidelines on the Holidays and general with 180. Tomorrow is Christmas, friends, family will make it tough. I just started it yesterday.
I have the 180 list. I guess I need more specific guidance on how things should go. Of course I was in panic mode and I did all the wrong things up until this point.
I am a long time BH now with the a faithful M for 6 years and now this newest A. D Day was only one week ago. This is my first post on SI since.
Please post so help/advice or what I can read. thank you and bless you all.

Well, here is a quick review:

Vaguely friendly, but distant. Think being polite to someone your parents invited over, who you don't know very well and don't have anything in common with. Non-commential or feeding comments back. "Didn't MIL give DD the best gift ever? - What a nice gift (said with a vague smile)." Friendly, but distant. And make spaces for yourself to get away, when needed. Lie-down for a headache, etc.

Best of luck. Just keep thinking of the time when everyone goes home and you can take care of business. (((hugs)))

Thanks. It has been only since Monday that I am trying this. She is living here until after the first of the year. Then she needs time away "alone?" to sort things out in her head.
I still need advice in implementing this then next few days. Letting friends and family get through Christmas before telling them... I want them to have a Christmas without this.
Please keep the responses coming. thank you
