Are you “sensitive?”

If so, you know too well how rough it can be to get through a week of challenging, and sometimes horrifying, news.  Reasons for being a high-stress personality are myriad, starting in the womb. Was Mom stressed? Then she passed those nasty stress hormones on to you. Generations of trauma* flow through our collective DNA. It manifests in a variety of personality traits, from irritability, abusive behavior, and paranoia, to addiction and depression. My departed mom is a good example.

When that happens with Blogger, forget about getting help. Frankly, Blogger is worthless in that department. It was never great, but now it’s nonexistent.
