We didn’t attend the Christmas dinner this evening at mom’s community. It’s the first major event I haven’t gone to. While on one hand it feels shitty, not taking the risk of another blow-out with my mother feels pretty OK. One cannot set boundaries with a demented person, so you have to set those boundaries with yourself, even if it tugs at you emotionally. Mom will have ample opportunity to push my buttons on Christmas itself 😜!
