I think folks are feeling shell-shocked and numb with the post -election results; all the hijinks and tomfoolery that occurred have folks reeling because our security has been violated. We feel we have been hoodwinked, robbed of truth and lied to.
Half the population feels we don’t matter at all and as a result I believe folks are experiencing various degrees of a syndrome called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
(Note: Before I go further, I need to say that I am not a Psychiatrist but I have been an RN for 35 years with a specialty certification in Psychiatry.)
PTSD can occur because of trauma, life threatening events or perceptions and rarely needs intervention unless you are extremely depressed and unable to function. Since the election, there have even been some reports of attempted murder and suicide in the news directly related to the election.
