Michelle Obama, our First Lady Forever and Queen, mentioned recently that she is suffering from a low-grade depression.
Off and on since the start of the pandemic really hitting here, I’ve felt waves / phases of just overwhelming fatigue. At first I was convinced it was a COVID-19 symptom that hadn’t been discovered yet, but a friend of mine pointed out that it was probably depression, and yeah, he’s probably right?
It feels like being trapped in very dense cotton. I have things to do but my body and my mind won’t cooperate. It’s frustrating, or really should be, but instead of the feeling of frustration, there’s just a big ol’ void of nothing.
I feel extra empathetic towards anyone I’ve ever collaborated with or worked with who has gone through this, and still pushed through. This is…not great! These waves usually pass, though, and that’s something to hold onto.
