Family events

Postby Frangi » Sun Nov 21, 2021 9:59 am

Does anyone else struggle with family events? It’s my mums birthday today and I really don’t feel up to attending but don’t want to upset her. I suffer from severe depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue. I am mentally and physically exhausted today. I feel really low and my anxiety is through the roof. My family are very understanding but do get upset when I can’t make these events. How do I explain to her that I just can’t do it!

Just say you can't but will visit at the earliest opportunity.
