How I Ended Up In A Psych Ward On Election Night
A top Hillary fundraiser’s fall
11/29/2016 03:47 am ET | Updated 7 hours ago

I found out Donald Trump had won the Electoral College while midstream in providing a urine sample for the emergency psychiatric staff of a New York City public hospital. The unlockable bathroom door in this unescapable wing was ajar, and I could hear the victorious Mike Pence’s sinister Sunday-school baritone taunting me with the truth from the hallway television.

For the preceding witching hours of election night, I had lain in a fetal position amidst a cast of anonymous men nursing their own crises, my hands clasped tightly over my ears. It wasn’t that I minded the howls of the guy nearby who was shackled to his cot and monitored by an unimpressed brood of policemen. Instead, I wanted to spare myself any word of the far greater insanity unfolding beyond the hospital walls.

Drained of tears, too tired to sleep, I stared at the fluorescent ceiling lights —which, indifferent to our suffering, remained on throughout the night — and endured the passing time by willing my thoughts to vanish into the dull glow. For a second, I imagined someone would burst in and proclaim, “It’s all right, Hillary won!” and I would bound out of bed, awoken from this nightmare.
This was all just a dream, right?

A while before, during the final hour of November 8, I had committed myself to institutional psychiatric care.

I strongly supported Trump, but have friends and family who were upset over Trump’s victory. None were at the point of a breakdown like this guy was.

I could pretty easily “talk family/friends down off the ledge” (they never even came close to the ledge) by pointing out that their anxiety over Trump was fueled by the same left-wing fake news echo chamber media bubble that said that Trump didn’t have a chance of winning. If those media were so wrong about Trump’s chances, maybe they are equally wrong about how a Trump presidency will play out.

The author and similar troubled people (whether supporters of Hillary, Trump, or whoever) can and should get the help they need.

I confess to a certain amount of Schadenfreude in spite of my sympathy for the author and similar severely misguided, possibly mentally-ill, people.

It’s the Schadenfreude that this must see funny video immediately came to mind; GEICO Drill Sgt Therapist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxK1agIXKeM

I feared for the country when Obama won, but I didn't assume a fetal position or melt like a snowflake.

Wonder if Gerry ended up in a similar breakdown that kept him away from FFXUG for a while.

Gerry should give some consideration to this type of surgery. Trumpcare will cover it.

It was a pre-existing condition anyway and he supports that.
