pandemic exhaustion 

I'm so exhausted after this pandemic. I feel like I'm spending most of my time just kinda trying to cope, you know?

I miss my friends, my family, etc. I miss going out to do things.

My creativity and initiative have been very low. I just wanna go do things and chill.

@pandora_parrot this; all of the ways we usually cope with stress have disappeared or been revamped, but the stress is still pouring in.

And it’s not like I was a model of great emotional health before that. I don’t know how universal this has been, but I’ve been scrambling on trying to patch my issues out of self preservation, which is great, but that’s still a huge energy sink, y’know?

re: pandemic exhaustion 

@pandora_parrot Very much agreed. I don't go out or socialize a lot, but spending two birthdays unable to go out and do anything different than I do every week... I'll be so happy just getting to eat at my favorite restaurant again, or take the bus downtown just to chill out and read a book.

Looking a lot forward to socialization, travel, and cuddles again too, but it's the little things that I really miss.

Fortunately only a few more weeks until everyone in the country is eligible!! :D
