i deleted the "news"
I feel a lot lighter...in spirit...these days. Three weeks ago I deleted all of the major "news" apps from my iPhone (except for NPR). It was second nature for me to read the news between patients, surgeries, in line in the cafeteria...whenever.
Except...I couldn't deal with it anymore. The stories started to make me sick...physically...emotionally. The horrific accounts of violence against children, women, mankind...political incompetence by our government...terror constantly in the middle east...hate hate hate from every direction of our globe...ugh. I can't take it. Maybe it's the hormones? I don't know.
Oh, and I quit watching the news at home too.
And you know the saying, "ignorance is bliss" - for me, it is true.
