I’m in constant flux between wild hope and quiet despair; between devouring all the news and becoming a Luddite; from comfort eating to intense nausea; from wanting to argue with every Trumphead in my path to considering deleting my accounts. (On that last one, all I have to say is thank God for the mute/block/snooze Read more
