Election anxiety

The mental health community reported a rise in stress disorder cases long before Donald Trump was elected 45th president of these United States of America.

Doctors saw a spike in stress-related phone calls the morning after Trump was elected.

There are different levels of stress disorders ranging from mild anxiety, Acute Stress Disorder (ASD), to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Election anxiety

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that is triggered by a shocking or traumatic event, such as a death in the family.

Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) is usually a short-term response to a perceived threat or a shocking traumatic event.

Stress disorders can disrupt your life and make it difficult to concentrate or complete tasks at work.

Many people suffering from election anxiety are experiencing a mild form of ASD.

Black people, illegal immigrants, and the gays feel especially threatened by Trump’s election.

Symptoms

Symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder (that lasts for several days) Include:

  • Intermittent crying
  • Easily upset
  • Tension, startles easily
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Irritability
  • Scattered thoughts or emotions
  • Insomnia, trouble sleeping
  • Pacing the room, unable to sit still
  • Reactive (short-term) depression
  • Avoidance behavior
  • Feeling suicidal
  • Panic anxiety (rapid heartbeat, increased respirations, excessive sweating)

  • Treatment

    If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, call a mental health hotline to find a doctor in your are who can evaluate you for ASD or PTSD.

    Short-term counseling or psychotherapy may be necessary to help you see that the threat is not real.

    Treatment also includes relaxation therapy or cognitive therapy.

    You may need short term medication, such as anti-depressants or anti-anxiety meds, to relieve your symptoms.

    ASD usually resolves in a timely manner (usually a week to 4 weeks).

    If your symptoms persist for more than a month, you may be diagnosed with PTSD.

    Approximately 50% of PTSD cases are resolved within six months.

      Chile these people are taking this mess too serious. I wonder how many of them ended up in the hospital. I wasn’t invested in either candidate, so I don’t even get where these people are coming from….crying and carrying on and what not. You win some, you lose some.

      nah this applies to the white women who had a chance to be represented in the White House, but failed becuase they dont even have the confidence to stand on their own. so how could they feel empowered to vote for their interest…

    • nucynu25

      I think ppl hve a genuine reason to be hurt or upset.. shidd I was last night but I had to gather myself & put some things into perspective. Trump created a campaign based of fear & bigotry so I do believe the response is fitting .. logical maybe not but fitting.

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      Shout out to everyone in here who chose to be igronant and not vote. From the very bottom of my heart,F yall. F yall. F yall. And don’t yall say SHIT about the government and how yall don’t like it for the next four damn years. Yall asses are a dis damn grace.

    • PettyEyezPrime

      My timeline for the things I know I need to do, school, businesses etc. just got pushed up like crazy. I now how to live with a completely different mindset. I already know they are like “you can’t sit with us” so now we must build our own seats and sit together. We’re stronger that way anyway. I only wish people realized this sooner ?

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      This. People are legit scared.

    • hi-liter

      So many white folk out in front of the WH after Trump’s win. I thought they was gone try and break in and put Obama and Michelle azzes out before January.

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      Like fools. Because Trump is not for women. He is trying to have yall locked up for having abortions. Quite as it’s kept, some are using abortions like birth control so good luck with that shit. Smfh. On our way back to the 50s.

      About 4 years ago, I started talking to my friends and family about recreating Black Wall Street. I looked into buying a town, Toombs, GA. It’s still for sale :coffee:

      zactly…then we loss congress because folk thought hillary would win, so as a measure to keep her in check they voted R.

    • Yoni

      RIGHT! LOL

    • Hmmm~?

      We were screwed either way.

    • Incog-knee-gress

      These folks were at the top of my damn list this morning you hear me? Bc if they would have voted and the folks who wrote dumb shat on their ballot and/or voted for OTHER woulda stopped being silly as FAWK woulda got in Formation? This would be a different outcome this morning. Im still floored by the amount of folks in Florida alone who DID this dumb mess. 250k! 250 THOUSAND YO. Voted for other. Why in the WORLD would you DO that? And if it was like that in Florida…imagine how many votes coulda turned out different OVERALL? My GOD.

      Old negro spiritual logic
      Clinton: 59,413,445 v Trump: 59,229,191 votes
      So how the hell is it our fault she lost?

    • PettyEyezPrime

      We must really start to think of “for self” but as Blacks as a whole. I will admit, I am not where I want to be due to life but I know that THIS is the time that is necessary to change and push for greater. I have a child and even she was off today. We need to have a come to Jesus about a lot of things and Black Wall Street might just be on that list. I’m tired of “them” telling us what’s for us and what we can have. It’s time for us to decide for ourselves and make it a reality. With or without “them”.

    • PettyEyezPrime

      Completely different mindset this morning.

    • NegroHummus

      hillary somewhere boo-hooing, couldnt even face the crowd last night…excellent example of an elitist, narcissist white woman.

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      I do blame yall. Listen, people died for us to have the right to vote. And for us to sit home and not vote is disrespectful to that lost life. And as woke as some claim they are and then did not vote?! It’s a bunch of bull shyt. Total bs. And of course I will deal. What you though that was a read? No it was not. I will continue on as will everyone else. But all that crap people talk about the government needs to stop. Yall didn’t do yall part so kindly SHut the entire fluck up.

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      Which needs to be looked at. If they vote against he popular vote that’s dead ass wrong and f them too

    • NegroHummus

      NegroDamus aint yo man #TrumpDidThisShit

    • Buttercup

      We’re never going to have their support or acceptance anyway. We are always quick to overlook their wrongdoings against us and forgive them with open arms, but when the tables turn they suddenly became Helen Keller. I agree with you 1,000%!

    • nucynu25

      I voted but am always alittle shocked when ppl act like we really choose. Am also equally annoyed when ppl say our ancestors died for this right.. this is the easiest form of detachment push a button & put another puppet in. I just feel like the blame game isn’t effective. Just as ppl choose to voters others wont. What happens when the person you vote for is elected does that make you responsible for their policies, their moral or ethics ..I think not

    • Incog-knee-gress

      I dont believe this. Bc at least we woulda had a Dem President. The last time we had a Republican President, House, and Senate this thing happened called the Great Depression. But the last time we had a Dem President and Republican House OR Senate was when Clinton was in office and folks flourished. And he was elected to a second term. first Dem President since FDR to do so.

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      No. we get it. Hillary was no great prize. But she was a much better choice out of the two.

      Starting today, I want to keep track of….
      How many vacays the trumps will take.
      How much each dress that hoelania wears costs.
      The expression of the faces on his liter of kids when he’s speaking.
      If he doesn’t wear a suit jacket in the oval office.
      If he wears a light colored suit somewhere.
      If he has one or two umbrella’s while speaking in the rain.
      What type of dog they decide to get and how they should care for it.
      How many times he’s threatened online and what how the person is dealt with.
      Remember all the petty things that ppl were in an uproar about when President Obama did or didn’t do. I need to start keeping track right now.

      O’an can somebody get me a banner with a pic of hoelania sprawled across it, so that I can hang it from a building when he’s entertaining guests from other countries.

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      Why?! Did they not die so we could vote? Is that not true? Annoyed at that fact? Why?

    • ShelbyMoore

      What are you talking about?

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      She said she is annoyed when people say our ancestors died for us to vote. That’s what I am commenting on.

    • ShelbyMoore

      You know this how?

    • SpillyNillie

      Everything he won’t accomplish or can’t accomplish, he’s going to blame Obama. Watch!

    • Yoni

      What do you say to the folks that DID vote and the “favorite” still lost?

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      You want to argue I see. Ok. Resume to resume she was better. Very much more qualified for the job. If they chose by resume, Trumps would of been in the trash. No call back. No interview.

    • 88

      Ppl didn’t die for us to vote they died because they were following MLK crooked ass. Stop playing the victim I told you voting does not matter you did it anyway now you see what I said was true but instead of facing the facts you looking for excuses.

    • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

      Nope

    • nucynu25

      Bc we only bring it up as if they soley died for the right to vote..they died for so much. IMO it becomes very trival when so much affects us but we ride the coat tails of their death only to push a button and in the end we still aren’t the determiners. I voted tho Keya .. I just genuinely understand why some don’t . shidd Malcom X didn’t believe in voting. But you know am fine with agreeing to disagree. Lol I talk to much ish to not vote even though I do believe it doesn’t matter.

    • nucynu25

      election shouldn’t have been this close anyway. Obama lost independents and still won handily with a 51% lead. Gary Johnson only picked up about 2 million. So Hillary should have still carried the addition 2 million and would have won anyway.

    • Hmmm~?

      Trust me, she wasn’t. I know that’s what we’d all like to believe, but we dodged an enormous bullet by not electing her. Besides, Trump’s assassination is likely already in the works. Everything will be fine.

    • SpillyNillie

      The sad thing is, trump and his supporters were banking on the ignorance of Blacks and them not voting. While I love my people, we can do and say some real pathetic shit at times. This was a time to unite as a community and foster CHANGE!

      No, she’s not the best candidate. But I think she would’ve been a lot better than trump.

      They died so so much. That I 100 percent agree with. But I feel like people don’t get that a life was lost for that too. They don’t care about voting and then talk all this crap. And that’s just not in here. That’s people all over. I’m just irked. I know people who did not vote talking about for what. Smfh. Annoyed is what I am. But I can respect your opinion. We don’t always see eye to eye but I do like your font. It’s not hateful. Love your shade and petty. ?

      Right. Also my ancestors died so I can make any flucking choice I want. I’m grown. So many people tried to convince me to vote yesterday and before that. My own mama couldn’t. And i agree… our ancestors fought for so much more for us as a people. They would be disappointed that we spend time online gossiping about strangers and watching Black people make a straight azz out of themselves on NATIONAL tv.

      when people vote, the popular vote in each state matters. if you’re popular in a state, you win the electoral college votes of that state.

      she just so happen to win in counties or states that had more people, then some of the states she won had a low number of EC votes. She lost in the major states that had a high number of EC votes…. aside form California, but that states takes up damn near the whole west coast.

I hate when black say this bull like we weren’t ish before yts bestoyed us with so called rights. America is RACIST! SO THE TOOTHLESS REDNECKS CAME OUT OF HIDING TO VOTE FOR THEIR LEADER . Jokes on them because Trump doesn’t give a shat about them and they too will soon see the writing on the walls. They put Trump in office for a reason.

      The Civil Rights Bill(s) did nothing but make the so called white rich and a small percentage of blacks got to move to the middle class. Look at the facts we have declined since integration. We are #1 in abortion, unemployment, incarceration, single parent households, high school dropouts, poverty, STD’s and homicide. We own less than 2% percent of the land in this country We don’t own any food market chains, we don’t have our own textiles industries, we don’t have our own water industry, heck we don’t even own the beauty suplies that in our communities so what benefits are you talking about?

As I said downstairs this was the black lash of Amerikka responding to a blk potus. Thiis is poor uneducated whites taking their country back.

      This was not just a couple of votes ahead making it typical circumstances. He got the votes very quickly. And as we sat looking at how much Red was on the map so quickly, I’m sure she was totally flabbergasted and probably could not speak due to the emotion of it all. Now yes, you’re supposed to be built tough if you want to be president- she’s been through the ringer, so I give her a pass to keep her dignity and not have come on stage last night a total mess so that those who weren’t “with her” could ridicule her further

      Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that is triggered by a shocking or traumatic event, such as a death in the family.

      Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) is usually a short-term response to a perceived threat or a shocking traumatic event.

      Stress disorders can disrupt your life and make it difficult to concentrate or complete tasks at work.

      Many people suffering from election anxiety are experiencing a mild form of ASD.

    • SpillyNillie

      And we had the same things you listed before the MLK era? Working in the fields, yes in the 60s still, and cleaning homes? We had a few small black businesses but how were they expected to grow if income within the community was stagnant? Pay was not equal. We were being educated by our own, yes, but do you really think that our education would have been equal to that of our “peers.” Blacks that were college-educated wouldn’t have received the same jobs as our “peers” because they didn’t receive the same education.

    • Incog-knee-gress

      Shift some things. Yes. But what did they want to shift? I was always under the impression it was about their right to vote and register for the right to do so without harrassment. It was a result of a failed voter registration campaign in Dallas County, Alabama. And that the voting league are the folks who caused the original rukus. Bc after the act was passed they were still getting oppressed to exercise their right.

    • NegroHummus

      Im all for President Michelle Obama, cuz we get a woman and Barry back baby lol…I think a lot of black folk are woke and would rather have an in your face racist, than a so call liberal lying to them…thinking of them as super predators, mass incarcerations etc etc. then only pandered to us via our celebs.

      Part of the failure is people who don’t vote, therefore they don’t get called for jury duty, which limits an accused person’s chances of getting judged by a jury of his/her peers.

      Ohhh. I know I’m technically a stranger, but reading your posts, you’re a friend in my head. I wholeheartedly agree with your decision. And I pray your constant courage and protection. Some days just don’t feel like dealing with illiterates. I totally understand. Sometimes, you gotta call in “sick of” and not just “sick”. ??
