Day 432 – It is exhausting. It is exasperating. It is ironic. Listening to people be intolerant while preaching tolerance. Ignorant of history while claiming some twisted intellectualized moral high ground.

Confounding. Politics is a nasty business. And I need to stay away from it. I can literally feel my chest tighten. I immediately begin to think about eating. Or drinking. IT IS CRAZY!

Content or under threat. The urge to self sooth is clear when I get stressed out. Eating my feelings is a reality I have had to face. When I began this journey it was what I refused to accept. There were a thousand other reasons why I was fat. Now, I can see it. I can watch it. Like an out of body experience.

I caught myself devouring political news tonight. Pun intended.

Politics and the news snaps me back and rattles my cage for sure. Months ago, my coach Bill Cortright strongly cautioned me to step away from my addiction to politics and news. And I did. Until recently. When the lure of watching a vitriolic national toxic temper tantrum proved too tempting to pass up. I can see and feel the result. #HallmarkChannel #PuppyVideos
