US current events / psychological wellness / not exactly encouragement but affirmatino 

Hey if you are feeling REAL fucked up right now or unable to find balance, please remember that you've got 2 years of pandemic stress, all the other grief/rage/stress over ongoing injustice, and then in the last week we've been hit with a major medical/psychological threat to the wellness of half our population, esp those already at risk.

And we have an unacknowledged COVID surge happening.

feeling fucked up and imbalanced is probably the most normal thing you could be feeling right now.

another US crisis I forgot to mention 

Oh yeah and the infant formula crisis. Like. Holy shit. Even if you don’t have a baby it’s something that impacts our networks, families, AND just other people and therefore for all of us who care about others… like fuck

yet another US crisis I forgot to mention 

Also everything happening in schools and libraries right now and white supremacists acting even bolder in many ways

another US crisis I forgot to mention 

@platypus Dude someone in our building got formula sent to them. No idea who, cause the building structure is super confusing, so in the weird foyer there's just...formula.
And not going to give it away in case there's someone where who needs it, but like idk who needs it. The solution to this would be way easier if the people who live in the building I know didn't have opposite sleep schedules.

@platypus Thank you. An affirmation is what I needed. I get up and log on to work and it seems like everyone's trying to be "normal" while I'm dragging rear to keep up.

@nivex I feel absolutely awful today and was kind of having to sit down and think about it like "ah ok yep that makes sense"

US current events / psychological wellness / not exactly encouragement but affirmatino 

@platypus Yeah thanks for saying this. There is so much going on, COVID-wise and otherwise, and, in my mind at least, everything non-COVID is exacerbated by COVID in ways no one is talking about.
