Tell I am being unreasonable about Christmas

Who would spend 4hrs in the M25 Traffic jam and then 4Hrs in an old age peoples home? To have your disabled Autistic teen shouted at by your sister in law and have your snide brother in law comment on all the lovely family heir looms he has snaffled away. Really who would spend Christmas like this or tell I am being unreasonable about Christmas? My mother in law has dementia who only remembers times when they were poor. My father in law talks about subjects you have got the foggiest idea with a social communication difficulty. As you can I am not looking forward to Christmas and would rather stay home alone. Please discuss xxx

Your teen comes first
Visit the nursing home on a day that traffic isn’t a nightmare. Even offer to go twice in exchange for skipping Christmas Day. Spreading out the family visits so you don’t all show up on the same day and then they have no visitors for long spells of time is actually a good idea anyway.
