I have PPED:
Post Presidential Election Depression.
It’s a very serious condition and not very pretty.
Apparently, an estimated 57,956,347 other Americans also suffer from PPED. My doctor tells me it usually goes away in four years, but can sometimes last for up to eight years. Cures and treatments vary greatly. Looking at old Ronald Reagan photos may bring temporary relief, but sadly, it is just that–temporary. Adding to the problem is most of the 57 plus million suffering from PPED have no idea how to get food-stamps, free cell phones, or even where the welfare office is. Those who are not suffering from PPED will have to explain to us how to get those things. And since the PPED crowd were raised to be self reliant and to “ask not what our country can do for us but what we can do for our country,” we’ll need advice on how best to flip that around. I’d write more, but I’m too depressed.
If you have discovered any cures for PPED, please let me know.
