As I’ve mentioned before, I suffer from clinical depression.
I also have a lot of anger simmering just below the surface.
Reading the news lately has only worsened those conditions.
Therefore, for the sake of my own mental health, I will have to refrain from keeping up with current events for the foreseeable future.
I don’t like that; I try to be an informed citizen of the world, with at least some awareness of what’s going on.
But, the more news I read, or see, or hear, the closer I believe I’m getting to a complete breakdown. Seriously. 😖
And, no, the news I view is not fake, despite testimony to the contrary. Oh, if only it was.
Someday, hopefully, I can channel all this anger into some constructive, positive action.
But, at this point, it just channels into more anger. And I simply can’t take it.
I know I need help. I’m gonna see about getting some.
Wish me luck.
Hello, my loyal fans.
I know, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything original on this blog; I’ve just been reblogging posts from other people that I found interesting and wanted to pass along, or directing you to other websites, because I’ve been unable lately to come up with a single thing to write about.
That I thought you would find worth reading, that is.
When he was President, Jimmy Carter once famously addressed the American people about what he termed a “crisis of confidence.”
I think that pretty well describes what I’ve been dealing with lately.
Whenever I’ve started to write something, I haven’t got very far before convincing myself that what I was writing was worthless junk, so I just give up.
I don’t want to bore you with any more anti-trumpism; I believe you all know my feelings toward the man by now, and just a cursory glance at the daily headlines can keep you apprised of what he and his gang are up to that day.
Problem is, anything I write these days sounds boring. To me, anyway. Maybe I just have a boring life; I don’t know. Nor do I know how long this malaise will last. Hopefully, I will come out of it soon, and I will produce something worthy of your time.
I know, this was boring, too. Sorry.
