I went to bed pretty late last night, for me. Probably close to midnight. I didn’t sleep all that well. I was waking up every hour or two all night but it was ok, because I knew I could sleep late this morning. It’s a cloudy morning, there’s rain around. It’s really kind of lovely. But some guy who I met once, decided that 6:30 would be a good time to text me. I didn’t really like him then, (thus one meeting) and certainly don’t like him any better now, lol. I’ve blocked him now, but who does that? Texts someone they don’t know very well at 6:30 am to tell them to have a wonderful day? Grateful he doesn’t know my last name! So now I am up, and tired, and could have probably slept til 8 since there is not bright sunshine coming through the windows! Oh well, it is what it is.
Then there is this tRumpcare bill that passed the house. I can only shake my head, it’s overwhelming to me that it passed. That we have 217 men in the U.S. House of Representatives that think it’s great. Except of course, that it’s not great enough for them to be covered under it. Of course, they are exempted. Of course. We all need to cry out to our Senators to please stop this bill from becoming law.
What scares me more though is this article from USA Today.
I have said so many times how tRump is so much like my ex. This psychologist describes tRump as having the same disorder as my ex, along with “malignant narcissism” and describes it in detail. The difference being, of course, my ex does not have his fingers on the nuclear codes and his next psychotic break won’t cause a war to ensue. That’s a real possibility for tRump. He’s quite capable of a psychotic break. He is as close as my ex was a few months ago. It’s a terrifying reality, as described by a Harvard psychologist. tRump is much more narcissistic than my ex ever was (and he was, for sure, a narcissist). They share these similarities though.
- “A delusion is “a fixed false belief that is resistant to reason or confrontation with actual fact”
- “He lies because of his sociopathic tendencies,” Dodes said (the Havard psychologist, Lance Dodes). “There’s also the kind of lying he has that is in a way more serious, that he has a loose grip on reality.”
- ‘flight of ideas.’ It’s a formal thought disorder in which ideas tumble forth through a disordered chain of associations. One word sparks another, which sparks another …”
We’re talking about the President of the United States, the leader of the free world here. Not my inconsequential ex. He’s terrifying. I hope and pray that the Universe will somehow create a path to get him out of the position of power he’s presently in, before he has a real psychotic break as my ex did, and pushes a button that should never be pushed.
This article by George Will in the Washington Post is another articulate piece on tRump’s obvious mental illness.
I can’t say it any better than these two articles did, so I’ll stop talking.
Love and light to all.
