Hi snicolle54,

What a lovely attitude and approach to helping your wife get in the Christmas spirit! This can be a very challenging time for many folks, but it is also time for family and friends to come together to celebrate and share their love and special moments. You may find some useful info and tips from these UK links:





What do you folks here think? Do you have any suggestions to help folks get through this festive period?

Take care,

Best wishes.


Get drunk? This usually helps me get through it.

Enjoy your Christmas day! I hope she has a good day and your whole family enjoys the experience. If you are having problems with meds and | or side effects to the extent that you want to drop them down for a special occasion you probably should talk to the patient GP or practitioner about that!
