@Aeiou I am sorry we are having a boring Christmas as well no tree and we can’t get to see the family we normally see because the fires are closing roads all the time. We are also getting smoke and I feel like I am constantly on standby because we have quite a lot of pets so I get worried that we have to get them out but it is all making me very anxious and sad and I feel very hopeless because I can’t do much to help. I also keep getting so angry at the government and I am getting to the point where I can’t keep listening to the news or going on Facebook because it is too much. I am sorry I don’t know how to cope either I just keep trying to remember that there is only so much I personally can do and that we just have to do what we can.
