Not Much To Say [Nov. 11th, 2016|08:33 pm]
Beemer
I don't really have anything to say about the election that hasn't been said by everyone else. It's horrible and depressing and it makes me worry and I hate that. I took a mental health day on Wednesday and persuaded Jerry to stay home and keep me company; I was coping alright, but I just didn't have it in me to cope with other people's emotions.

I have a whole post about the trip to Boston that just needs editing, and maybe another one brewing, but tonight we are disengaging and watching happy escapist fluff, so that's all I got right now.

Going in to work one Wednesday was creepy. The whole place was silent. No one was talking, it was like being at a funeral. I was so jealous of my sister who stayed home, mostly, because she had just gotten out of the hospital. SO, yeah, good call on staying home.

I came this close to taking a mental health day on Wednesday myself. Probably the only reason I went in is because I had someone else's mental health to take care of, and (a) that's important to me, and (b) I knew it would take my mind off the election, whereas staying home - or just working on writing reports at work - would just have me ruminating. I have a lot of writing to catch up on this weekend now.

It certainly has been a drain on my emotional fortitude. I'm out of town next week, which is a blessing in disguise I think.
