    "The difference between what we thought the situation was and what it is creates a kind of horror in me that's hard to face and hard to process and hard to work around.

    So I click through because I can do that without much effort. Is this any way to live or do activism? No. But I've got to pull myself together somehow and be able to work rather than being paralyzed by horror.

    I haven't figured out how to do that yet. There's no therapy for stuff like this." ........describes my sense of horror and terror as well.

    I have been afraid to say so out loud to anyone. Thanks.

      It's hard to talk about the monster you see, because if you do, you have to admit it exists.

      I don't like that any better than anybody else; I just don't think denial is going to get me anywhere.

      But paralysis is no good either.

      Thanks for being there, and for acknowledging my comment. That matters.
