WSB-TV’s Rikki Klaus spoke with licensed psychologists at Synapse LLC in Atlanta to see if their patients are also experiencing anxiety tied to politics.
"They are experiencing more stress, and we see that as well in the research,” said Dr. Janet Cox.
"For some, they are reacting as if their life is in danger,” Dr. Neal Cohen told Klaus.
Chris Hill, with the local militia group Georgia Security Force III%, said the new administration has been a relief.
"Not even a month into it, we have what I've always wanted: an outsider, an independent,” he said. "Every day, it's been like waking up Christmas morning."
It was a different story at a rally in Atlanta on Monday at which protesters called for President Trump's impeachment.
"We think there's possible reasons for impeachment,” one opponent told WSB-TV.
"The best I can hope is that marches like this will at least keep him under control and let him act like a Republican, instead of an egomaniac,” another opponent said.
Cox and Cohen recommended several strategies for coping with stress, including eating healthy food, exercising daily, spending time with like-minded people and practicing mindfulness.
