For many of us, it emotionally feels like we've been living under our current administration for years. However, in reality, we've technically just reached the milestone of Donald Trump's first 100 days in office. From experiencing not one, but two executive order travel ban attempts to the failed effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, there has been a lot of controversy and, for Republicans, disappointment in the first 100 days.

However, in order to get a more personal view of the size and scope of Trump's first 100 days in office, Bustle reached out over email to a handful of millennial women to see the ways in which the Trump administration has affected the lives of young women.

Based on the women Bustle talked to, the effects of Trump's first 100 days in office have run the gamut of range and reach: sometimes manifesting themselves in mental health symptoms; other times, taking a toll on finances, health insurance, or immigration status. Perhaps one of the most consistent themes among millennial women Bustle spoke to is the ways the new administration has strained relationships, whether with coworkers, family members, strangers or romantic prospects, Trump-related anxiety in the U.S. has been on a steady uptick.

Each of the women that Bustle spoke with was presented with one open-ended prompt question: What is the largest or most noticeable way Trump's presidency has affected your everyday life in the first 100 days? Here are the results.
