Can't Make Sense Of The World Anymore:

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Every day I turn on the news something so terrible has happened. Won't get into details but I can say most definitely my stress level is worse than ever, depression worsening. All not good for those of us with HIV or anyone for that matter. Feel really overwhelmed
What helps me is to try in my own way to make a difference. Started really giving back to my community, and getting involved and partnering with national human rights, conservation, veterans, animal protection organizations for… read more

Unfortunately, from an active conservationist point of view, this administration has destroyed the EPA. The new director is all about fossil fuel and mining money. Yesterday Trump administration wants to lift protection on endangered species act. Also the administration plus the Alaska Republican Government are signing away Bristol Bay a pristine protected area full of beauty and extremely important for the survival of salmon part of the food chain. Of course this means nothing to this administration since in their view climate change is a hoax. My question is why destroy the earth just for monetary gain while probably by 2030 the landscape of the world could be dramatically change and by 2050 the world possibly uninhabitable.. I don't get it!

Things are getting complicated due to our social media issues and “fake news” crap. Donald Trump has told 12,000 lies since he took office according to the NY TIMES. He’s about as fake as they come. Makes you want to turn off the news and start enjoying your environment around you whatever that may be

this question has been raised in support groups throughout the country, politics in general has always been stressful, lately they've been more so..... I tend to turn off the TV and the news now, so that my stress levels don't get too high and I don't get too upset....perhaps changing venue and not being so immersed in the news, and when 2020 comes around we can all just vote and change this course in history. 🤗

Stress is #1 for me. Stress can do so much to ones body.. I try to keep busy. But living in Phoenix it makes it hard to do that. Try to to take time for yourself. Take a nap have a snack you enjoy. Hug someone you love. But I get it days turning months etc... Stay strong. Write me if you want to talk. Jeff

Politics is just people arguing over the same shit year after year without progress. The stress it causes is both useless and damaging. Care for yourself is #1.
