Trump Stole My Brain

It really is just one thing after another.

I was walking from work to the subway today, and it occurred to me that for nearly the last three months, I can barely think about anything outside of Trump and just how fucked we are. It consumes at least 90% of my mental energy. I visited my doctor yesterday and told her that I've experienced pretty much constant anxiety since Election Day, and she told me that she has been seeing many patients with the exact same issue.

In some alternative dimension, I'm just about to resume a month of a self-imposed break from politics. I would not likely have started blogging. I would've continued my normal life, without constantly feeling dread in the pit of my stomach.

Instead, it just gets worse. I don't expect that pattern to change anytime soon. Which means that what's going on in my head is the best it's going to get for the next four years.

All I'm saying, I think, is that I want my brain back.
