In this week’s new Dustinland comic, I pretty much show you what it’s like to have a migraine. Although I did leave out the incredible sensitivity to light. Not the trippy sparkly light they call auras. That I covered. I mean like once the pain starts, you can’t even be in a room with the lights on without cowering like a vampire. I was out in the broad daylight for a few minutes and I really did feel like Nosferatu. It would have been embarrassing if I wasn’t in such agony.
Anyway, I’d prefer not to do that again. Man, do I feel bad for people who deal with this all the time! Brutal. It is NOT a headache. A headache is like a cool breeze compared to this.
Well, if you do deal with migraines and people tell you to “suck it up” or something like that, send them this comic.
Yeah… I mean, as this week’s Dustinland comic shows, it’s hard to sleep sometimes. Damn brain. Shut up! Shut up, brain! Perhaps some of this is due to my health habits of not working out ever, not meditating, etc… I should do some of that stuff. Also beer, coffee… all the things that make life fun… I dunno. I actually do everything in moderation but sometimes it feels like even that is too much.
Blech. I blame Trump.
I know this week’s new Dustinland comic can come off sort of first world problems / mo money, mo problems, but that’s how I feel. It’s like at every moment my job is to appease one person or several people, possibly with competing demands, and there is no end and no way to make everyone happy. And forget about what I want. Although you can say ostensibly that in doing what I want in the bigger scheme of things, I subject myself to this lifestyle where I am subservient to the wants of others. Which is probably correct. But still, even if you have it good, relatively speaking, you can still feel stressed out — and do.
It’s time for vacation.

I know this week’s new Dustinland comic can be considered irresponsible, but I’m not trying to convince anyone to do or not do anything. I’m simply saying, man, it really sucks to have to stress out over politics all the time. It would be so much easier to just have relatively competent non-corrupt people in place running things so the rest of us could go back to our lives. But of course it doesn’t work that way – we must be vigilant, even though it’s boring and stressful and shitty in every way. Fun times.
P.S. I bet money some Trump supporters say “You should go to Mars and take the rest of the libtards with you” or something to that effect. Just more of the boring predictability I’m talking about.
