Self Care

I don't know how to do this. How do you wake up every morning wondering if today's the day that our president is going to blow up the world? How do you go to work, plan your child's future, plan next week's goddamned menu when you keep waiting for the world to end?

Everywhere I look people say that you have to take care of yourself. But how indulgent is it to take your eyes off the stage when the next act might be the last?

I'm trying. I really am. I collect recipes, I work on my Pinterest boards, I'm working on saving money to send Mollie to Japan. Maybe we'll all live. Maybe the man in orange won't destroy us. He might just destroy our democracy.

How are people doing this?


  1. Fuck if I know. Meds. Ignoring the news sometimes. Throwing myself into distractions. Some days I'm not doing it, and then I eat my feelings.

  2. My biggest help is my garden. It's something to take care of, and the beauty of flowers nourishes me.
