Doctor. Thank You for saving my life.  Doctors need our appreciation and emotional support.

An article was published in a major Israeli newspaper, “Fourth tragedy in Soroka hospital.  In the course of one year and a half years four doctors in Soroka committed suicide.” Soroka hospital is located in the southern city of Beer Sheva.

The Real Culprits in the Trump Saga

I’ve tried really long and hard to figure it out. How did we get here? How did, we as a nation, arrive at this point of divisiveness, corruption, ineptitude, and toxicity at our highest and most prestigious office in the land—the office of The President of the United States?

Three years into Trump’s presidency, we have seen plenty to be concerned about. We have seen lies, hypocrisy, ineptness, coercion, bullying, obstruction, slander, racism, divisiveness, and abuses of power among others. Most disturbingly, we have seen signs of mental illness. We have also seen the very fabric of our democracy and the Constitution under attack from the executive branch. We have seen attacks on the free press. We have seen Congress threatened and controlled. We have seen abuses of the use of executive orders. We have even seen threats of riots. We have seen enough drama to make us sick as a nation. I’ve found myself going to emedihealth.com to find cures for nausea and stress headaches. I’ve often said that I understand people who are mentally ill, evil, lost, corrupt etc., but I’ve never understood the people that surround these individuals for allowing their behavior. Make no mistake, President Trump should be held accountable and is responsible for the current Constitutional crisis. But he alone should not shoulder the entire blame. It takes a system of enabling to allow one individual to bring so much chaos. So just who is responsible for our current crisis?

I’m in a Toxic Relationship with The President

I never thought it would happen to me. I never thought I would be in an abusive and toxic relationship as bad as this. I thought I was too smart. I thought I knew all of the signs. I thought I was too crafty. But I am in the middle of a toxic relationship and I can’t escape. I have tried, but he is like a stalker. He is everywhere. He has no boundaries. He has no conscience. “He” is the President of the United States.

To make matters worse, I didn’t ask to be in this relationship. It just found me. Well, maybe I did to a degree. I didn’t vote for him, but I also didn’t vote for the other candidate. My vote was a write in/protest vote. That didn’t turn out too well. I would have probably been in another toxic relationship if the other candidate won too, but this one feels SO bad.
