Man Goes To The Psych Ward Laying In The Fetal Position - Staff Realizes Why He’s There

A Hillary Clinton supporter was so devastated by the unexpected turn of events on election night that he says he ended up in the 'fetal position' in a 'psych ward.' He says he felt suicidal.

Benjamin Ryan, a Clinton fundraiser who raised nearly $200,000 in campaign funds for the former Secretary of State, was at the Clinton would-be 'victory' party in Manhattan. He and other guests gathered giddy with anticipation of celebrating the first female president, and the utter defeat of her opponent, Republican nominee Donald Trump.

As votes from battleground states began filtering in, the celebratory atmosphere began to change to that of a ‘wake,' Ryan says.

"For the preceding witching hours of election night, I had lain in a fetal position amidst a cast of anonymous men nursing their own crises, my hands clasped tightly over my ears," Ryan writes for an editorial in the Huffington Post. "It wasn’t that I minded the howls of the guy nearby who was shackled to his cot and monitored by an unimpressed brood of policemen. Instead, I wanted to spare myself any word of the far greater insanity unfolding beyond the hospital walls."

"For a second, I imagined someone would burst in and proclaim, “It’s all right, Hillary won!” and I would bound out of bed, awoken from this nightmare," Ryan recounts, but it was not to be. In the wee hours of the night, in the midst of manufacturing a urine sample, Ryan heard the news that Trump won.

Ryan credits psychiatric care with saving his life. In the face of a Trump presidency, suicide was an appealing option for the liberal. In the end, he was able to pull himself together and move forward.
