Headaches and America’s Headache 

Because of lack of sleep Monday night because I was awoken by a headache, I ended up going home from work early yesterday. I wasn’t going to write about this headache because I think I write too much about my headaches and depression. I’d hoped that as the depression seems to be easing some and I’m happier (or at least not unhappy) more so than I am sad that my headaches would ease up and get better. Sadly, that hasn’t been the case. The good thing is that this cycle of cluster headaches has not been nearly as bad as last years cycle, though this one has lasted longer. Only once (Monday night) have I been woken by a headache. Last year that was happening on a nearly weekly basis. I do think that the depression and the headaches are linked, and I also think that the daily medicine they have me on for cluster headaches has helped lessen their intensity.

And speaking of headaches, what the hell is wrong with Republicans voting for Donald Trump? He is rude, he is crass, and he is a fascist. I feel like I’m in Germany in the 1920s and early 1930s. People are supporting him because of his xenophobic rhetoric and his crassness that makes him appear to be an outsider. Yet, Trump treats this whole thing like a reality show and we all know how much America loves reality shows. With Ted Cruz out, he’s pretty much guaranteed the Republican nomination, which means we have to get behind Hillary no matter what. She is our last hope for a free America.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
