How do you handle the holidays?
I haven't posted much, though I lurk weekly on the board and your posts have helped me understand and maintain an often lopsided friendship.
My friend, who probably can be categorized as having moderate SA, lost his father earlier this year and is naturally still having a hard time coping with his death. He and I both abhor holidays, particularly Christmas. My question is since he'll probably be having a more difficult holiday season this year, it is best to leave him alone or try to spend more time with him?
Naturally, I don't expect an EXACT answer, but not having SA myself, I always have to flip a coin as to what he really wants/needs in terms of close interaction. You guys have been so helpful in the past, I thought you could give me your opinion now.
