I got sucked into late, late night cable TV news after 9/11 and ruined my sleep cycle for years. Finally, around 2006 I went cold turkey. I couldn’t take anymore of CNN, MSNBC, FOX (once in a while), and the rest of the entertainment news stations creating news and breaking new out of the most trivial events. I have to be totally honest. 2006 was the year I was diagnosed with cancer and I found I had much more important things to worry about … like surviving and living with less stress in my life. So far, so good. And I have not gone back to those stations and their addicting candy stories trying to get us high on what is making us sick. It is liberating.
