It's another day of fighting symptoms. Also, fighting for survival for many. Time to break our no progressive politics content rule. Why? Because here in the States nine millions little kids have no health coverage. It's called CHIP (Child Health Insurance Program). Congress stopped funding it. Now, millions of kids could die without it.
What the politicians don't understand (or just don't care about) is that health is both physical and emotional. Not two seperate things. Many are multimillionaires who will get an enormous tax cut. They see health as not a right but as a business investment. What's in it for me? What's the return? Politicians automatically get the best health care. Why? Because they're rich and powerful and they should have the best. As for the rest, the government has NO RESPONSIBILITY to save anyone else's life. If you get sick or injured, just shut up and die. Millions of right wingers actually support this. They'll fight to the death for the right to have as many guns as possible. But a safe home, a good job and health care for everyone? Fuck that. That's goddamn socialism. We can't have that shit. These people still say if you don't like it here, go back to Russia. Uh, I've never been to Russia. I was born here. Get the fuck out!
The pain of trauma never goes away. For a while today, we've struggled with suicidal thoughts. Lots of pain (both physical and emotional). Do we have a death wish? No. Is this trauma pain, cancer or something else? We think it's trauma pain. It never goes away. But we'll never ever go back to a psych hospital ever again.
Protect your well being.
