44. I am going through this, too.
I always feel alone when it hits me but I know there are others going through it too, like you. Now it's becoming a daily thing. I have had a sinus infection for 2 weeks that I couldn't figure out. It finally dawned on me that I cry freqently now.

I fell APART and SOBBED after watching Syriana recently. It was just too poigniant. I feel bad for my husband, because he's helpless when I'm this upset. All he can do is be my shoulder. He's a good one. But I feel I need more professional help now.

I've lost friends who are tired of me writing political blogs that they DON'T have to read. No one forces them to, so I don't get that. That in itself is pretty depressing. But then just tonight, the first time my mother mentioned the war to me, was just the last straw. She just has no ide what she's tlaking about.

To give some perspective, I consider myself a political n00b. It was the run-up to the 2004 election that got me to wake up. But still, it FLOORS me to hear my own mother simply repeat things that she has heard form other idiots. Things someone as ignorant and uninformed as she is has NO BUSINESS saying. Things that have to do with the LIVES of others.

"Iraq is against the u s a and Ireal has become corrupt and GOD said so." "There's too much crime in town. America should be better. If people want to shoot people they should go to Irag." WHAT THE FUCK. I don't understand it and I never will. I did what I could but I don't think she is reachable. I don't know if I could handle ever talking to her again (she wasn't the best mother, so it's not JUST this, but this is pretty bad in itself; I know most of you understand that).

Thanks for the thread, I needed to talk about this but wasn't sure where to start. Sorry I ranted in your thread, but you are not alone. I want so badly to give up and stop listening. But I refuse to be wilfully ignorant. That's what got us into this mess.
