It's only January 29 and I've never felt so tired.
The year hasn't even started and it's hard to find a person who doesn't feel completely cooked.
If you're one of what I suspect is a small, outlying group of people who have come back bouncing with renewed energy from summer break, then go and stand over there. The rest of us, feeling more wrung out than we did at the end of Pandemic Year II, don't want to hear a word out of you.
I have absolutely no right to complain, of course. I recently came back from holidays — something that hundreds of nurses and doctors in their suffocating, bruising PPE or their frightened patients haven't managed to do. They're the ones with first dibs on official exhaustion.
And yet utter malaise, mental emptiness and a very strong feeling that I need a … holiday seem to be my vacation achievements.
