      My focus IS others! My animals are others. I love animals and all I can do is care for my own. Please stop trying to lay the guilt trip about people on me. Helping my animals helps me and I am doing the best I can now. I am taking a break from this forum now.

      I think it is great that your caring for your rescues. My cat Molly was rescued by one of my wife's friends from work. She found her near a dumpster along with her sibilings. That is her hobby to rescue animals and find new owners for them. She actually paid for it when we had Molly fixed so she can't have kittens.

      Thank you, it's a full time job to care for my rescues. I love them so much.

      Now that I'm older, I get depressed around the holidays. We used to have family members over at my house for every holiday and we'd make a big celebration out of it and it would last from morning to night. Now, my family barely comes together anymore. Everyone is older, everyone has their own little families, everyone just has their own things going on. I still live at home though so I feel the absence the most. My girlfriend tries to cheer me up during every holiday and she does a great job, but it would nice to get the family back together for at least one holiday. Christmas was my absolute favourite time of year. Now, it's just another day.

      I left Mexico thinking I would be able to visit back every couple years, prior that I was pretty much a stay at home kind of person. It is going to be a decade without seeing them face to face. We can Skype and text but the passage of time has definitely taken a token. Relatives I left healthy have passed away. My brother was just becoming a teenager and now he is an adult. Cousins my age now got their own families and kids that I haven't seen as babies but are now part of their daily days. Many instances where the image in my mind doesn't correspond with the reality there.

      Winter holidays really hit me hard. I tend to get a lot of difficult time sleeping, tons of dreams and I am prone to try to deal with things by withdrawing myself rather than reaching out. I think it is good I am now better able to see the pattern and question some of my own actions so I don't just let myself fall into it. Last year, after I told a close friend I was basically procrastinating going to bed each night, I made an agreement with him and he'd stick with me by text and try to make sure I was heading to bed at the time I was supposed to. It might seem dumb, but it really helped me. I will probably have to have another Christmas in Australia, but hopefully next year I cn get to see them and that can help me.
