Anyone else need a break from politics but feel like they can't because so much shit keeps happening and if you turn your back the world the nation the world is just sort of going to explode?

In other but not unrelated news I think I finally don't have a migraine, which is significant since I've pretty much had one (low grade) since the inauguration. Literally. It started Friday morning, went through Saturday and the March*, kinda eased up Sunday evening, started in on the other side Monday and went through last night. Like. Trump taking office gave me a migraine.

Might see about editing some fic today, though, because I need a break.



*Just a tip, but please do not burn sage or anything else in a crowd, you do not know who among the many around you might have respiratory problems or sensitivities. In this case it was REALLY NOT HELPING THE NAUSIA AND HEADACHE. I appreciate the sentiment but please, just don't.

Very glad to hear the migraine has abated.

Please do enjoy your fic break, and get at least a little reprieve from the shit. *hugs*

Thanks ^^. Hopefully I can get at least a little bit of a break - if this isn't stress-induced I really have no idea what I'm reacting to.

I've been contemplating a FB break because I just can't with some of the people in my life anymore since the election. I weeded most of them out but unfortunately there are still mutual family members so I'm finding I can't escape the ignorance when they decide to comment on other people's posts and start debates. It's been very stressful. The whole state of our nation has been a source of stress for me lately. I fear it won't get much better, though.

Trump taking office has been a traumatic experience, and sadly it doesn't shock me at all to see people suffering physically. :(

FB arguments never seem to come to anything, either, except for getting all involved more and more aggravated. And right now it seems to be a lot of the same doom repeated over and over with very little of what to do about it. We need a FB that filters out all the politics and news and only has the actual genuine updates from people.

I follow and renember reading what hans Christian Andersen says about politics of my view too.


"Yet I did not wish to speak of politics, they stand far from me like a strange, distant cloud; but now they have spread over all Europe, and their sharp mist penetrates every member, and one breathes nothing but politics"


Not something I would get involved to think, speak or listen too. Its always bad than the good why bother depress your existance in it. my life to short for that I enjoy it well I can with the good left of it.

I wish I could just ignore it. But when I'm in very real danger of losing things like health care and reproductive rights, not to mention protections for minorities, LGBT, and others - it's a little too immediate and real.

Yes, to that whole first sentence. So sorry to hear about your evil migraine. If you're open to homeopathic remedies there's one by NaturalCare that is called Migraine. I've been using the same company's NerveFix remedy for months and it's made a HUGE difference in my pain level, so if you're interested it might be helpful. Hope you have no more migraines for a very long time & hang on for the stress from all these crazy politcal moves.
