Rules for a healthy Christmas
Rule no 1. Setting healthy boundaries
Make sure to check all your contacts in social media and remove anyone the alienating parent may be using to stalk you.
Check all your contacts in messenger, whats app, skype etc and delete anyone who could cause you problems.
Remove anyone posing to be a friend but not actually being a friend.
Block any users that have several profiles under the same name, these are usually fake profiles.
Rule no 2. A healthy Christmas – Detox
Now you have detoxed your social media its time to detox your mind and body in time for Christmas.

Rule no 3. Don’t be alone on Christmas day

First go and seek advice from you regular GP and let them know what you have been going through. Hopefully if they are understanding they will refer you to recommended practitioner. You will need to make it clear that they will need to have a thorough understanding of PA.
If not, you can always contact the helpline (registered paid up members only) at NAAP for advice NAAP Helpline
