Man… there is so much shit going on that I don’t feel comfortable sharing. It’s taking up all my brain space though so I don’t have anything to say when I get here though. A friend of mine is having a divorce after 20 years of marriage and it’s been really tough on him. I’ve been very worried about it ever since he told me. I think he’s finally on an even enough keel that I don’t need to worry about him hurting himself, but you never can tell with emotional stuff like that. Major life changes, especially ones that come out of nowhere, are brutal to deal with. I’m glad that I can be there for him though.
The teen… I’m just gonna let that whole thing stew for a while. I don’t even feel like typing anything about her at the moment.
This health care thing with the republicans has got so many people terrified that it’s spilling in to everything. Even the economy on the internet. People are bracing for disaster and when they do that they spend a lot less on advertising and patreon pledging. My friend with the divorce is petrified that he’ll never have health care ever again because he has a pre existing condition and where his life is now he may not be able to afford being in one of those high risk groups.
All of this shit is totally exasperating and there’s nothing I can do but just live through it with everyone else. A month of no disasters would be really great. Just a little calm time so I can recharge and get my life in some kind of order. Everything happens so much…
