Democrats continue to experience a near-crippling depression since President Donald Trump took office, forcing mental health professionals to name the problem post-election stress disorder, according to a Monday report from CNN.
The news coming from the White House on a daily basis is so disconcerting to those who oppose Trump that they are experiencing classical signs of depression, and moving off of Facebook and other social media sites.
“It’s been crippling,” Clinton voter Waly Pfingsten told CNN. “I feel angry, really, really angry, far more angry than I expected to be.”
Pfingsten deleted his Facebook account, and tried to shut himself off from the news, but not knowing what Trump was doing also made him anxious.
Professionals report a large increase in office visits from former Clinton supporters who are angry, upset, and depressed about the news.
A New York City-based online therapist location service reported that traffic tripled in the days since the election, and demand continues to grow, fueled largely by gay, lesbian and minority clients.
“In my 28 years in practice, I’ve never seen anything like this level of stress,” said Nancy Molitor, a psychologist in the Chicago suburbs reported. “What we’re seeing now after the inauguration is a huge uptick in anxiety.”
“I have people who’ve told me they’re in mourning, that they’ve lost their libido,” Molitor said. “I have people saying the anxiety is causing them to be so distracted that they’re blowing stop signs or getting into fender benders.”
Liberals are so depressed and angry over Trump’s election, that they are taking it out on family and friends that supported the president during the election.
“There’s so much negative from all these stupid Facebook posts acting like the world is going to end,” an Arizona Trump supporter said. “And it’s false. And I can’t do a thing about it.”
“When you say ‘a bunch of idiots’ voted Trump in,” she said. “You’re talking about half of all Americans! We were hopeful at first, and now we’re angry and tired of being blamed. Nobody wants to listen anymore, and that’s where my sadness comes from.”
Democrats nationwide have staged a steady stream of protests since the election, with several groups storming Washington, D.C., on the weekend of the inauguration.
