Election coverage fatigue!

I am a complete news junkie.  I listen to CNN in my car all day and pride myself on feeling informed.  I was ready for the election to come because I was beginning to get tired of the coverage.  Imagine my horror when now that the election is over it still is the only thing they talk about. 

I swear if I hear another word about what Obama will do in his first day of office, will their be a bipartisan effort, will the stimulus that he proposes be enough, did Sarah Palin buy designer clothes, does she know where Africa is, etc I am going to SCREAM!!!!!

Ever the good psychologist, I have diagnosed myself with "Election coverage and economy doom and gloom fatigue syndrome."

Symptoms include:

  • A strong desire to slap your tv and/or radio
  • A lack of fingernails from overwhelming anxiety
  • A strong desire to close your eyes, cover your ears and scream loudly
  • A yearning for something alcoholic (even though in my case I don't even drink)

If you have noticed these and other symptoms then you too may suffer from this new but very common syndrome.

Treatment includes changing the channel to mindless tv or if in the car change the station to the sappy love song channel and sing along loudly.

Very funny, Stacey-Ann!  I could not agree more.  It's like now that the election is over they are stuck with nothing to talk about.  There has to be other news going on around the world right?

The last week heading up to the election I shut down on media. I too, thought that on the 4th that would be the end of it. Maybe we will have to endure till January.

I am elated that Obama is our President elect-and am an "Addict" or progessive talk radio, Amy Goodman's Democracy Now.  I could definaltely use a rest.  Listen to some happy music right now.  (Don't watch TV-have a 2 year old son)

Stacey-Ann - I agree.  I'm ready to listen to and talk about something else...  :)
