I need to quit getting involved in political discussions. On Facebook… Twitter… Everywhere! Democrat vs. Republican. Whatever, wherever. Done!
Although I am getting better at arguing my point, I feel worthless and empty right afterwords.
This is to include the politics of mental health. And, of course, the concept of recovery.
I dislike the notion of recovery. It lasts for as long as you’re well, and doesn’t really properly account for the times when you are acutely ill.
I know, and if anyone else has any understanding on the subject, what I go through every day.
As someone with chronic schizoaffective disorder, I am ill. I am not well. I strive to be well, but I am not that.
I am also not able to withstand a lot of stress. Do a lot of things around the house. Nor can I engage in good self-care practices.
Resistance is futile. In terms of my passion for politics. All politics.
I just need to not care like I do.
Yes, I want Bernie in, to help us be the final major country to get universal health care. But, I am not going to be the one to head up that fight.
Again, I am going to try to be done.
