As the holidays draw near, the popular notion of a “stress-free Holiday Season” seems more and more amusing to me. With gifts to wrap and food to prepare, decorations to hang and events to attend, stress is, well, omnipresent.
For most of us, this added stress can mean we say or do things that aren’t exactly in the ‘spirit of the Holidays’.
But for women living with abuse, the added stress can mean life or death.
