29. Worst fight of my 24 year marriage was election night 2016.

I’d gotten home a little late from work and was scrambling to get dinner going. My then 11 year old politically engaged son had called me on my way home and was very upset...he was saying that the people on MSNBC were acting worried that the MF might win. I assured him over the phone that it was so early and Hillary would pull ahead etc etc. My son was unconvinced and it was like a pall had descended over me, over him and over our household. My politically uninterested husband came home from work and the child and I were quiet and clearly stressed...husband said “what’s up with you two?” I looked at him with tears in my eyes and said “I’m a wreck. It’s happening. He’s going to win”. A-political husband laughed out loud and said “OMG you need to relax”. Yep. He said that....and let me tell you it was fucking ON at that point. Horrid night. I like many of you haven’t slept 8 hours in two plus years. I was back in therapy within a week and am still there. My now 13 year old son is still politically interested and engaged...I love him so much. Every day he gets home from school and asks what crap MF45 pulled while he was at school. We can laugh about it, thank goodness. I thank the universe daily for all of you here on DU. This place has saved my sanity and probably my marriage. I love you all. ❤️
