I was talking to my friend M not too long ago and mentioned how depressed and anxious I’ve been feeling. I think I’ve realized that living in the UK was a vacation from some of the economic problems. When we were there I was pretty choosy about the news from the States I paid attention to thinking hey I’m not living there right now. I was also pretty choosy about the UK news I consumed because I just didn’t feel as invested knowing. I get back here and turn on the news, start reading the newspaper and I want to jump out the window. My friend M confirmed that the economic news has been bad for some time. No wonder we’ve become a Prozac nation.
I think I need to go back to burying my head at least half-way in the sand.
