The problem -- how to survive the upcoming midterm "elections" -- is not as trivial as it seems, and therefore it will serve us well to remember a few things.
After the 2004 "election", many otherwise functional people went into deep depressions. I was one of them, and I remember reading about a doctor who had given a new name to our affliction. It had something to do with post-traumatic stress, but it was a little bit different.
Does anyone remember the name he gave it? Please help me out with this one, if you can. But don't worry too much about the name; depression by any other name is just as black.
And in any event, the name is not as important as the fact that many people had the disease, in one form or another. And it just about ruined some of us.
So ... your first step, if you want to survive the upcoming midterm "elections", is to join me in the realization that what's about to happen may be extremely dangerous to our health, and that therefore we will need to take all the precautions we can manage.
Tomorrow I will post the next item this series (Blogger willing and the creek don't rise). Until then, please take care ... especially of your immune system.
This is gonna be a tough couple of weeks, and we all need to be at our best.
