I had a really bad day at work today. I was tired, irritable, snappy, short tempered and actually lost my temper once today and snapped at a colleague. This is so not me and so not the way I want to be. I was thinking about this on the way home and it came to me-all these damn holidays I have to face alone. Easter with no one, Mother's Day with kids in other states, and worst of all, our wedding anniversary coming up on the 14th of
May with no Barry.
Barry loved holidays and always made them special in some way. He used to give me Mother's Day cards from the dog and cat since we had no kids in common. And of course on our anniversary he always managed to find iris or lavender roses and had them delivered to work so the whole world could see I was loved. Now the only thing delivered to me at work is more workload and headaches.
I need coping strategies for getting through these damn holidays. I'll welcome any advice.
