21. I, too, am having a difficult time holding it together.
Cried on and off last night, woke up with a mondo headache.
I realized at about 8:00 last night, that my main issue wasn't sadness (my usual empathetic response to innocents dying), no I was MAD. FURIOUS at all the repukes who not only allowed this war, but are behind it 110%. I see these *holes driving around in their SUV's with their Murikan flags and I want to puke. Literally.
It's like they're living in a fantasy world, where other people's deaths and maiming and starvation and desolation don't exist.
I'm a basically happy liberal and realist. Repressed anger just was NOT part of my psycological make-up.
I am in sales, and I'm finding it hard to get out and smile and be positive (a requirement, when you're selling something people can really live without).
I know that repressed anger afflicts men more than women. Any suggestions on how to deal?
