‘Trump anxiety’

7 posts in this topic

Psychologists and massage therapists are reporting ‘Trump anxiety’ among clients

To the catalogue of anxieties her patients explore during therapy — marriage, children, and careers — psychologist Alison Howard is now listening to a new source of stress: the political rise of Donald Trump.

In recent days, at least two patients have invoked the Republican front-runner, including one who talked at length about being disturbed that Trump can be so divisive and popular at the same time, said Howard, who practices in the District.

What had happened to Trump during his childhood, the patient wanted to know, to make him such a “bad person?”

"He has stirred people up,” Howard said. “We’ve been told our whole lives not to say bad things about people, to not be bullies, to not ostracize people based on their skin color. We have these social mores and he breaks all of them and he’s successful. And people are wondering how he gets away with it.”
-----
For some, Trump’s diatribes against undocumented immigrants, Mexicans and Muslims evoke unpleasant flashbacks of dictators. For others, his raw-toned insults conjure memories of high school bullies.

Type “Trump” and phrases such as “scaring me” or “freaking me out” into Twitter’s search engine, and a litany of tweets unfurl, including one posted two weeks ago by Emma Taylor as she lay in bed in Los Angeles: “I literally can’t sleep because I just thought about how Trump may actually win the Presidency and now I’m having a panic attack.”
-----
Ken Goldstein, a Los Angeles-based author and businessman who is a Democrat, recalled meeting with a business associate recently and feeling astounded when the man said he thought Trump would “be great for America."

"You just realize you have nothing more to say to that person,” he said.

Goldstein finds small comfort imagining Trump’s defeat, if only because his followers “are still there.”

“Who are these people?” he asked. “Are they at the grocery store, are they sitting next to me at Dodger Stadium? That makes me nervous.”

I think we should market paper bags as personal, portable, safe spaces for the liberals.

Really??? What a pathetic world we live in when a Presidential campaign drives people to the point of needing massages and psychological treatment.

If I was a shrink I would tell those people to turn off their TV's, pour a drink, turn on some music and dance like no one is watching. Life is short and there are NO guarantees. Hell you might have a heart attack and drop dead before you have a chance to cast your vote for President. Live your life and stop worrying about things that you have no control over!

Right? But psychologists make a living off allowing people to believe they're mentally ill for feeling normal emotions.
Not that I think Trump anxiety is normal. It's strange to be so sensitive about everything but that's what's happened.
People are triggered into behaving irrationally and it's not their fault they can't control themselves, It's yours or mine.
Bunch of wussies if you ask me. I really think we could make a killing on paper bag portable safe spaces.   :rJwJ7w9:

Are you offended by things you see when out in public?
Are you triggered by random conversations you overhear?
Do you feel you need some time to compose yourself?

The personal, portable, safe space is for you!
Just slip this lightweight comfortable safe space on your head!
You will be shielded from deeply disturbing sights and it muffles sound too!

The personal, portable, safe space comes in a variety of shades to match your skin tone!
When friends, family, or coworkers see you with your safe space on your head they will respect your need be be alone!

Order now.

Who has time to be a sensitive twit? They must be spending too much time on social media when they could be actually DOING something productive like gardening or actually creating a life for themselves........one that hasn't been created for them. But, that's the liberal way, isn't it?

Ironically, when the prez said "you didn't build that" he was talking to the socialists who contribute nothing but mayhem. I don't know much about Trump's business ventures but it seems he's a developer, taking raw land and turning it into something different. Some might argue that the "something different" isn't something better but it's certainly more productive than whining about your feelings on twitter or wasting your life in the shrink's office.

Stupidity is taking down America more efficiently than any nuke could.

I've had Obama anxiety for nearly 8 years and no one cares.
