Plans for writing every day sure are thwarted when an election triggers severe anxiety and panic attacks and insomnia and fear. I’m not sure when I’m going to be able to fill in those days. I’ve tried to be reasonable and then every day comes a reminder of what America has really voted – and this desperate prayer and plea that the safeguards of our nation will really protect us.


I am terrified.

Me, too. It's consumed everything I think about. It pauses in the best and most interesting moments in my classroom -- and crashes back down when I look at my phone and find that someone else has been threatened or another appointment has been made. It's truly terrifying. I try to be hopeful, but it's hard, while we wait, and I just don't know -- none of us do, I guess.

Love, love, love.

I just deleted Facebook from my phone. It was becoming overwhelming. My mental and emotional health is literally on a thread. I need a break.

Love back to you.

I just hope it won't be as bad as it sounds...

I think it will be. And that's what concerns me. We've elected a guy who has no respect for government or our role in globalization.

And no clue. And is deeply corrupt. :(

If it helps, we manage with our president who is significantly more corrupt, more ignorant, and more criminal, and somehow we manage.

The long-term impacts will not be pretty though.

I'm considering deleting my Facebook. I'm tired of blocking people.

Someone on DW is creating a post-election community. Instead of posting at FB or even my journal, I might join. It is all I can think about.

I deleted facebook from my phone and I've only checked in a couple of times since then. I do feel so much better - still appropriately concerned, but not breaking into tears every couple of hours. And no more panic attacks.
