This is going to be crazy to believe, but pychologists all over the country are diagnosing their patients with PESD. These patients are experiencing increased levels of anxiety, trouble sleeping, trouble focusing at work, and troubles with completing their daily activities. This phenomenon has been attributed to Trump becoming president. According to PsychologyToday.com, the common complaints of the patients include:
“I haven’t slept in two days…”
“I can’t stop sobbing…”
“I am having nightmares…”
“This reminds me of when I was sexually assaulted…”
“I thought I was over all of my past abuse but now it’s back…”
“I can’t sleep, can’t eat, can’t function…”
Give me a break. I don’t buy it.
I kinda of get it and have some empathy for the stress in people’s lives as a result of Trump becoming president, but there’s zero comparison of PESD and the horrors that our soldiers experience in combat. There’s a big difference between being slightly pissed off and what our servicemen encounter on the battlefield.
But in all seriousness, learn to have thicker skin.
