06:06 am:  Trying not to scream. Was going to go to a demo downtown today (because if I'm unemployed I might as well make use of my time) against the travel ban, and then with the attack on a mosque in Quebec by fucking Canadian domestic terrorists the demo was going to be a vigil as well, but Andrew's falling apart again from his new mess that were supposed to help with the neuropathy and I don't dare leave him alone and I feel like I'm having to choose between him and humanity and there's no right answer. And I'm making it all about me, which I shouldn't and I don't know what to do. Will try to at least rouse the courage later in the day to call my MP. That sounds stupid but I fear and loathe phone calls.

ETA -- by 10:30am he was feeling better. Heading downtown now, better late than never.

Self-care has to come first; choosing to look after Andrew and to look after yourself does not mean you're neglecting your duty to humanity.
If you can manage to call your MP, great; otherwise, an email or a letter is good too.

Elsewhere I've seen a few people talking about how kindness can be a radical act when the world is becoming a very cruel place; I think that includes kindness to ourselves. So don't beat yourself up because you're stretched thin right now. Prioritise, do what you can, and live to fight another day.
