Our being gravely uncomfortable in the face of what is happening all over the planet is a sign of deep knowing, not illness…
Secondary to the brain injury in December I’ve now had raging hyperthyroid for months. It’s clear that psychosis isn’t something this body/mind does easily anymore since I do not sleep anymore than 2 hours a night and often less. The level of taxation on the body is through the roof.
