Why I’m Not Going to Thanksgiving

November 27, 2019

My family ignores me. My aunt puts me down; my uncle wants me to drink. This is why I’m not showing up this year again. I am 10 years sober, and for the umpteenth time, I do not drink. Not even if someone asks me if I want to. I’ve decided not to go to places where I feel unwanted, disrespected, and put down. This is why I’m not going to Thanksgiving or Christmas. I’d rather stay in a safe environment if people were going to deny the problems in my family like them having untreated schizoaffective and OCD. Medication makes mental health problems that much easier to deal with. This is why I do not want to be in a gloomy environment. I’m reserving the right to keep my self-safe.
