Bit of a Rant: Tired and Over it #CPTSD #Fibromyalgia

Poverty is traumatic. Living in your car and fearing for your life every night is traumatic.  Being brown in america is traumatic.  
I finally got myself to a place where I can (just barely, and with the help of dear friends) afford to live.  In Asia.  And I watch all these people on social media back "home" in the Divided States COMPLAIN about "getting fat" over eating and  over shopping during this lockdown/quarantine/work-from-home new normal we have going on... meanwhile, in the rest of the world - like where I live - people have lost EVERYTHING - from business to homes -  because tourism is shut down. We can barely afford to feed ourselves while the western world argues about wearing masks and binges on junk food.
Come the F on!
As if watching the news isn't bad enough, being worried that someone is going to attack my sweet old Thai mother just for BEING,  I then look at IG and see people complaining about having 'too much'.
Get an F'n Grip and check your privilege. #RacialTrauma #Anxiety #Depression #Compassionfatigue
rant over.
