snapdragon76: this is made of win and awesome (Default)
OK, I'm feeling a smidgen of rage right now, and I feel the need to let it out, so bear with me.

It might be a bit long, so I'll put it under a cut.

It's official. We, as a country, are truly fucked. Trump will be our new President (God, that makes me want to vomit just thinking about it). We have a racist, sexist, homophobic asshole as leader of the free world. How did things come to this? Are people so butthurt about Obama's policies of actually caring about the people of this country, that they had to elect the exact opposite? It's like if Voldemort or Emperor Palpatine were in charge of the country.

Yes, this pisses me off to no end. I may be pissed off for four years... provided I survive that long. I'm also scared. There is a strong chance that I may lose my health insurance because of this yahoo. And with that, I lose my medical treatment for my Crohn's Disease. I have no job prospects on the horizon, so Obamacare is so far the only way I can have any kind of coverage. My quality of life will go down considerably if I can't get my Remicade treatments.

Also, my mom's Social Security and Medicare benefits will be affected and she needs that to live. As do millions of other people. It's like the Repukelicans don't care at all about the poor, the elderly, or the disabled. They seem to think that people are poor by choice. Would you choose to be poor? Most of us don't. I know I don't. Some of us find it hard to find jobs, among other things.

The thing that baffles me the most, is that so many people who claim to be Christian, support this man! How?!?! Is it his “anti-abortion” stance? I don't believe he really is. He just says what he needs to say to get people to believe him. And so many of these “pro-lifers” say they support the unborn, but not the child after it's been born. Again, baffling.

I just hope that there will be some way we can survive this. We as a nation, we as a people and we as a society. Dramatic? Maybe, but fear and anger can do that to someone. I'm not going to be violent. I will call out wrongness when I see it.

My future career may also be affected, since the new Secretary of Education, who has no background in education whatsoever, is an opponent and critic of the public school system who wants to cut even more costs. It sickens me. I'm at my wits end!

I'm trying to remain calm, but as each day passes, my Anxiety gets worse and worse.

In other news, we will be moving. We were approved for the apartment, so all we need to do is pay the security deposit and the first month's rent and sign the lease and it'll be official. That's some additional stress. While I want to move and am happy about this, I dislike the actual process of moving. The packing, the physical transfer of our stuff from one place to another and the unpacking. Plus, we'll be doing this in January, and I'm not looking forward to moving in the winter. Hopefully things will go smoothly, but my Anxiety (once again) likes to rear it's ugly head now and then and give me stress. Nnnnnngggg...

We're holding off on making it public until we sign the lease and all of that.

That's it for now. Hopefully 2017 won't be a total custerfuck, but I'm not holding my breath. And sorry about the ranting...
