I have a knot in my stomach and I’m hoping you can help. As you may know, Christmas is right around the corner. Given that reality, I’m finishing up finals and getting ready to fly home to be with my family for Christmas. This is the problem. My relationship with my family is, to put it mildly, strained. Yet I have a plane ticket and will be going into the lion's den for a week, and I’m sick about it. How do I deal with this?
