Thank you for the kind word and gift. As for the election, I don't even know where to begin. I'm lost and feeling incredibly let down. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.
I'm scared. Literally.
Everything this country gained the past eight years is going to be destroyed. The healthcare my mother and I came to depend on is going to be dropped, which means I will no longer be able to see my doctor for my GAD or afford the medication for it. My mother has her own heath concerns; chronic pain, high blood pressure.
As a woman, I'm stunned.
As an American, I am ashamed.
Bigotry won. White supremacy won. Misogyny won.
I bawled my eyes out last night until I was numb.
I cried again this morning, again numb.
I really don't know what this country will become over the course of four years.
