Lovelies,

I. Am so. Tired.

No, tired isn’t right. A good nights sleep fixes tired.

I’m fucking exhausted. Mentally, emotionally, and physically. I am just drained!

We’ve been sick off and on for a month and so that’s been brutal. On top of that my brain hurts from thinking about/dealing with all the news around Trump this past week. My anxiety has definitely been affected and it’s emotionally exhausting to reign that in all the time and not just run around screaming “the sky is falling”. Which is pretty well how it feels a lot of the time.

I am battling with the idea of stepping away from my computer/social media for a while as an act of desperate self preservation. That would probably help me stay more present in my real life, in Canada, away from Trump, with the babe. It would probably free up a lot of time that could be used meditating, or drawing, or working out… all of which would help me immensely. But I fear disconnecting. Which is probably a bad sign in and of itself, but I’m so wrung out it might be necessary. I shall report back. For now, salutations.

Be well,

The Chicken

    I feel the same way. The way I am staying online is to only read/react to information that comes from one of five sources: WashPo, NYT, CNN, NPR, or BBC. No memes, no Medium, no HuffPo, etc.

      Mel,
      That’s a good idea. I also think I’ll turn off my notifications from Facebook and only check 2 times a day. I need more self preservation than info atm.

    I feel like you- tired, getting over sick, and horrified with Trump news. Wish I was in Canada with you!

    Ugh, at least you get to be in Canada.
    It’s weird how much my anxiety is triggered when I see stuff about him. I have so many people I’ve unfollowed recently, it’s insane. I don’t mind people posting well-researched articles and giving their commentary. It’s the vast majority of people who just share things left and right, whether they’ve been verified or not, and the more shocking the headline, the better. I can’t do it anymore. So friend, or family, if you are posting these things repeatedly for the sake of drumming up drama or for shock value… you’re getting yourself unfollowed.
