Election eve mental health

#MentalHealthMonday⁠⁠It's election eve 2020. And I'm keeping myself calm by focusing on what I can control.⁠⁠I haven't watched, read, or listened to any news in more than two weeks. I stopped looking at the vile comments people somehow feel are okay to say to one another.⁠⁠It was all too much. My anxiety had reached nightmarish levels, quite literally.⁠⁠The months leading up to this election have been toxic like no other. And our mental health has suffered greatly because of it. ⁠⁠This is your reminder to take good care of yourself, avoid poisonous people, and focus on what you can control. ⁠⁠I will break my news-detox tomorrow to watch the election results. I pray we can once again come together as a country.⁠⁠If you are in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (TALK) or text MHA to 741-741.⁠⁠If you are not in crisis, but need to talk to someone, my partner, @mentalhealthamerica can help you find a warmline. Warmlines connect you with trained support staff who understand what it's like to struggle with mental health problems, and can help you address your current situation. Go to mhanational.org/warmlines to find a warmline near you. ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #b4stage4 #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthissues #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthwarriors #mentalwellness #mentalhealthawareness #therapyiscool #selflovejourney #seekhelp #youareimportant #healingtools #healingtrauma #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthhelp #mentalhealthcommunity #covid2020 #covid19news #coronaviruspandemic #coronavirusnews #lifeinthetimeofcornona ⁠
