How hard is it

to put yourself in a self induced coma? I'm done being absolutely stressed to the point of breaking on a daily basis. I worry what is happening to this world with this insane far right ideology flying around. I never gave a rat's ass about punk ass putin, except for thinking he was a complete scumbag who thought too highly of himself. Now he's the puppeteer of this scumbag who thinks a little too highly of himself here in America. Too many white trash bigoted "Americans" are all too eager to go along with this garbage because it's easier for them to hate than it is to love. I fear Mueller's investigation is moving way too slowly, and that nothing will come of it regardless of what is proven. I'm concerned that even with a blue tsunami, the gerrymandering is too much to overcome. This country cannot last another 6 years under this crippling, stressful weight of daily horror. I'm already a socially awkward, anxiety ridden person and have tried to avoid taking medication for fear of side affects, etc. The coma thing may be too extreme, but maybe i can be partially hypnotized in the way Peter from the movie Office Space was. But on a lighter note...

I'm about to head over to the doctor to get this gauze packing taken out of this hole in my hand! Hooray!

I tune in to the WildEarth on line safari show and enjoy the humor and knowledge of the guides, the scenery, the animals and the action.

The other day an elephant was killed by a bigger elephant, and they put a 24/7 camera on the carcass to show what happens when such a massive beast dies. And, of course, as the elephant disappears to scavengers, I am visualizing that elephant as being representative of the GOP. It is mildly cathartic.
