Ok, so that problem solved, but here is my dilemma. The presidential race is making me ill - I can't stand the stress of who will win the democratic nomination. I can't stand the stress of the idea of McCain as president. I can't stand the idea that this country may never recover from the damage done by Bush. These are thoughts that keep me awake at night. And I'm becoming addicted to keeping track of every blip on the screen about the elections.
How do I save myself from myself?

Move to Canada? I'm being sarcastic, but there are days it has its appeal.

When I get to that point, I have to cut myself off from the news cold turkey for several days sometimes. Read or listen (something light), get outside, just chill and try to remember that it will pass. :)

I basically do what tiffany norris does. I rarely watch television news (it's so inflammatory anyway, and I'm not just talking about "Decision 2008"), and there comes a point where I even limit my online news. I used to be much more politically plugged in, but I found I was getting too angry and I was having trouble processing the rage. In the name of self-preservation, I had to start limiting the amount of news I could expose myself to.

I also don't pay attention to the news. It's way too depressing. The damage Bush has done? How about the damage of Bush, Bush and Reagen? I don't know how I'm going to cope if we end up with another Republican in office. If it was that easy to move to Canada, I'd already be there.
