My seven step program for getting over the election

I'm Down. I'm really down.
I'm down. Down on the ground.
How can you laugh when you know I'm down?
How can you laugh?

I've had a tough week. I admit I'm not handling the election results well. I took it very personally. I may be understating that. I'm handling the results bad...really bad...really fucking bad.

But after a few days of hiding out, not eating anything but junk, stressing and worrying about shit that I can't control, I realized that this crap isn't healthy. I need to start feeling better.

Yesterday, I started doing things to get me on the way to feeling a little better. Is it working? Not sure yet but at least I haven't been hiding in my bed under the covers all morning. Small steps!

Don't let it bring you down.
It's only castles burning.
Find someone who's turning.
And you will come around.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
