Dear AVENUE - Surviving Christmas With The In-laws

posted on November 30, 2017 posted in Blog

Dear AVENUE 

Every year I dread Christmas. Both my parents and my husband's are so demanding and outspoken. They tend to dictate what is going to happen, everything from arrival time to the brand of sherry to be used in the trifle. I bite my tongue and try to please because I don’t want to cause a fight, but I’m fuming inside. I’m afraid a time will come when I erupt. I should say something but I’m not very good at standing up for myself and they are such unreasonable people. Any suggestions?

Dear AVENUE - Coping with Anxiety and Depression

posted on October 30, 2017 posted in Blog

Dear AVENUE

For the past two years I have been having bouts of depression. I end up feeling anxious or worn out for no real reason and I find it really hard to communicate with people without lashing out at them. It happens even for short periods of time, like I might go from happy to distressed and angry from hour to hour. It’s affecting my work and I need to find a way to manage it before it causes major problems with my colleagues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear AVENUE - My Husband's Job is Stressing All of Us

posted on October 04, 2017 posted in Blog

Dear AVENUE

My husband has a very stressful job and he complains about it every day.  There’s a lot of conflict between him and one of his colleagues and he’s not good at managing it.  When he comes home, he’s in a bad mood, sometimes he barely speak to me and the kids.  It’s been going on for an age and it’s really awful.  I try to speak to him about it but he just barks at me, saying I don’t understand.  I see the children watching the clock, waiting for Dad to come home and they scarper before he does.  It’s all becoming unbearable, please help.
