Strategies for Surviving Thanksgiving

For some reason, I always feel bad for the millions of turkeys that are fed out the ying-yang to fatten them up… Treated like royalty till a few weeks before the holidays then everything changes…  Before you know it you’re plucked, stuffed and basted.  Then picked apart by your friends, family and loved ones… Sounds like living with Bipolar Disorder or a Mental Illness, right?

What strategies will work for surviving the next few weeks… Legal meds always seem to help… That reminds me, I need to fill my anxiety medications.
