Embattled in Politics

A post I wrote last week was sent to my local paper in Texas as a letter to the editor, and thus this second writing. There’s nothing like jumping into a hornet’s nest expecting to escape unscathed.

Watching the news has me grabbing my bottle of antidepressants and gobbling a handful, hoping I won’t cut my wrist before they kick in to soothe my ever-growing anxiety about the state of our country. Force feeding the orange one truth pills would be a start to easing my concern, but that seems unlikely for… Continue reading More Zoloft, Please

What Game Are We Playing?

Brick walls, emotional breaks, letting go, and unleashed tears. I had one of those meltdowns yesterday, on the birthday of our country. And I’m not certain why.

Is There a 12 Step Program for Poli-coholics?

I need a 12 step program. In fact, before November 8 the entire nation may need more than just a Poli-coholics Anonomous program. We will need one-on-one counseling on anger management, truthfulness, sleeping disorders, and paranoia. That will be followed by withdrawal therapy after the election. You see, emotionally, I’m jagged, jarred, edgy, and cranky. It… Continue reading Is There a 12 Step Program for Poli-coholics?
