My hands are shaking

Trying to drink a beer and read DU on my Nexus Galaxy. My hands are shaking, my heart is racing. I wasn't this nervous for my first job interview, my first lay, my wedding day or the birth of my first child.

Shit I need to calm down. Don't want to stroke out.

3. I found myself unexpectedly shaking in the voting booth.

Odd because it's the same place I've voted for thirtyfive years. Nothing unusual about the scene. But I started to shake and had to re-focus and check carefully that I was filling out the right oval.

10. I'm a nervous wreck.

I simply cannot go through what I went through 5 years ago. My business was ruined by Republicans. I don't know how anyone in my business could vote for a repug after what they did.

12. A) Calm down. B) Change your priorities.

And C) Do not tell your wife this is more emotional than marrying her or the birth of your first child.

16. Ha! I may be nervous...but i aint dumb.

My point is I never get nervous for anything. I love public speaking, performing, had a radio talk show...

But the thought of that fucker Romney as a president is downright nauseating.

24. My heart was racing after 2 minutes of CNN/MSNBC

I had to turn it off. I can't risk a panic attack. The most I can do is read DU for updates.

27. Me too.

I'm not even the nervous type, but egads, tonight is just doing me in! I just turned off the TV and I'm going to try to do something and come back when more states have been called (for Obama that is).

I can't take this. There'll be little sleep tonight.
