Can’t think straight

I joke about this at work all the time. I put a label on a pill bottle crooked or do something similar and say: “I can’t even think straight”!

When I get anxious, I talk fast, often not making sense or saying things I don’t mean. My mind races when I get this way. Sometimes I run. I don’t mean I run away, exactly. It’s more like moving on to the next thing I have to do. I know it’s a defense mechanism, and I usually recognize it when it’s happening, but I have yet to be able to change my behavior. I will continue to work on it. I know this is one of my issues. We all have our issues, right?

Lately, I’ve been feeling stretched. There’s not enough time in the day and there is great conflict inside me as to how I spend that time. My heart is in one place, and my responsibilities are in another. Nuff said about that.

Life is much busier and more stressful than it was for our parents and grandparents. We go to work each day to earn money so that we can live. Providing is harder. Prices go up and we find it harder every month to make ends meet. The economy is not in a good place right now, and we have a president in office that we cannot trust who is self serving and refusing to protect his people. Us. Americans. We are the laughing stock of the world and now he’s tryng to put us in another war. WWI and WWII started off this way. Just saying. He is not doing the job of a president.

My biggest fear now is 2021, when my son graduates high school. Will he be drafted into the US military because of the president’s greed and stupidity? I think a lot of people are afraid of what’s happening and where the president is taking us. We are in a very dangerous place. If he continues to go down this road, he’s unwillingly taking all of us with him.

You may have noticed in some of my previous blog posts that I don’t mention his name. I refuse to. He will be a permanent stain on our democracy as it is and I will not utter his shameful name.

Okay, that was a rant I was not intending, lol. Forgive me.

I will end this post by saying it is of the utmost importance that we all vote this year. For the sake of saving what’s left of our democracy and doing what’s right. Our government is not doing their job. I’m not just talking about Mr. Orange hair, I’m talking about congress as well. How can our representatives and senators continue to ignore what is happening? They are more concerned about keeping their job than doing their job. Stand up for the people you work for. Of the people, by the people, for the people. Not for him….

It’s an election year here in the US. Make sure you are registered to vote! You can do that here: Find your state in the list and check your status. If you are not yet registered, you can register there, or get instructions on how to register.
