I’ve been trying to volunteer more as a way to manage my anxiety. I got the news about RBG yesterday while at the post office to mail letters encouraging people to vote. I sat in my car and cried before marching in to buy more stamps. I don’t know if it’ll do anything but it helps me.

Fwiw, NPR’s All Things Considered had some really great coverage of RBG today, too. Read more

Hey everyone. I feel like I haven’t been here much lately. Between watching my beloved Angeles National Forest burn for nearly two weeks and grad school, I’ve been preoccupied. I nearly fainted when the news broke into fire coverage to announce RBG had died. Then we had an earthquake. It was moderate, no damage, but Read more

I just found out I have Covid. I feel a little funky. Headache, sinus stuff, tired, but not too terrible. I’ve done everything I was supposed to do. Mask, isolate, no eating at restaurants, in public only to walk the dog or exercise with a mask. I’m now in quarantine until 9/26. I’m really scared that I’m going to get Read more

I told my husband that I want a trial separation yesterday afternoon, so I was all cried out by the time the news about RBG came in. Needless to say, neither of us is feeling great today.

Not great! I cried a lot last night and my husband made us blackberry whiskey sours. Today, I’m just numb.

I'm no stranger to nightmares and I got woken up by a particularly nasty one this morning and I've been in a funk all day

Once again during this administration, I find myself considering taking a weekend trip to Arizona, and buying something from a guy in a pickup truck in a Wal Mart parking lot...

Trying not to give in to despair (or fear, anger, or sadness) today. Fortunately (I guess) I have grading to do today to distract me.

Thanks for this post. I cried last night, out of grief and terror. This morning I am numb again. I haven’t been able to do anything I had planned this morning, and I’m letting myself off the hook for that. I have plans to see friends this afternoon, and I’m looking forward to it so much.

I feel very strange. I’m angry on an intellectual level but my body feels very detached from the anger. Physically I feel sort of numb, but also sore all over, as if I’d been beaten.

I actually just talked to someone at the Verizon store. Apparently these wireless pads aren't as fast as plugging them in, even though they want you to use them. Idk, i hate all this shit. It's a racket. I'm going in to exchange them. New phones shouldn't work worse than old phones.

I’m trying to read the positive posts about RBG & her phenomenal life & legacy. As much as I want to feel like this, it’s not working yet.
