Filling out my timecard…

I took Wednesday off from work. I was so sickened and depressed from the election that I couldn't face the world. And even though my coworkers are the best people I've ever worked with in my life, I couldn't face the conversation I would be having all day. I just couldn't. So I stayed home.

Now I'm filling out my time card for the week and recording the time off, but I have to pick a category. I could categorize it as sick because I was completely heartsick (not to mention a little hung over).  Or I could categorize it as bereavement — which is defined as "Suffering the loss of a loved one" and I feel as if I am suffering at the same level — having suffered the loss of my beloved liberty and citizenship, if not personhood.

So which do I pick? Hmmmm…
