I've been angry since Nov. 9, 2016.
I'm not by nature an angry person.
But when you're fighting for your literal life, you're in constant pain & you have to fight a system dedicated to crushing sick/#disabled people, it's enraging.
Not artistic works or small films or books but
THINGS THAT WILL KEEP US FROM DYING.
Take that in, America.
Except we AREN'T all in this together.
That's why Trump is POTUS.
To this day it haunts me.
What happens in trauma, is there are too many and our brains overload and we get #PTSD.
I try never to write when I'm angry.
I'm angry that the #nytimes is highlighting people like Quinn Norton, Bret Stephens and Bari Weiss.
I'm angry that I'm SO POOR and that I am not alone in that.
That's not good for America because there are millions of us, most of us are women, and there's no one to speak for us.
And since no one speaks for us, our voices are suppressed.
Two nights a week she drives to another state to teach at a second college because she can't make enough money to cover our expenses working just one teaching job.
It's 2am and she's just getting home.
Sometimes you have to stand in the public square and scream out "Please help me!"
Just remember, it's not just me.
It's millions of us.
It's beautiful, so I am sending it to everyone who's gotten through this thread.
