Members Popular Post Gail 8588 Posted September 19, 2020 Members Popular Post Report Share Posted September 19, 2020 I appreciate that on this forum we keep the comments non-political. I want to keep it that way too. But I just want to acknowledge how deeply traumatized I am by the political situation in our country. It's the 100 pound sack of concrete breaking the camel's back. I struggle with the loss of my spouse, the loss of my identity, the loss of our future together, the fear of growing old alone, the vulnerability of living alone, the stress of having to take care of everything myself, the isolation of covid-19. I am barely functioning. Barely holding on to a reason to keep trying. The whole political mess our country is in, is just too much for me. Each side claiming that if the other guy wins - life will be terrible. Both sides saying there won't be a peaceful post election period. The stress of all this chaos is more than a feather breaking the camel's back, it's a sack of concrete. I feel I am being crushed. I told my friend I just want to be put in a medically induced coma until February. I try not to read or watch the news, but it's everywhere. I tried watching football today, but so many of the adds are political. Emails are political. Radio . . . It's everywhere. Sorry for the long rant, but sometimes I feel I am losing my mind. I can't live in this constant state of anxiety that is being heaped on my already fragile existence. Gail 5 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
