Nah.

Anxiety levels are the result of the Federal Budget. Basically, it's this topic that keeps triggering me. Other triggers for anxiety are floating around, but they're all ones that, prior to the week just gone, weren't causing this level of upset.

It frightens me because of both what it means in our country, what it says about our society's direction, and because of what it means to me personally.

In fact, those things are intertwined. These right wing, poor-blaming attitudes are going to effect me in very real, material ways. The sting of blame and retribution are the means to silence me and make me powerless to cope.

Nightmares about what's happening in the driveway: my world is not safe, my home is not safe. I am not safe. The outside world is pushing its way in and I'll be getting hurt.
