Your Symptoms Are Real

Lockdown fatigue is actually a thing. 

I believe that I have been feeling rather drained and fed up. I don’t do things that overly exhaust me yet I am still tired. 

Basically, our internal threat system has been switched on for almost one year and that takes a lot out of us. 

Being out of routine, trying to do more things than normal such as parenting, homeschooling etc, not being able to see friends and family, worrying about money and general anxiety all require energy. 

This is not a normal way of living but how you feel is. All forms of fear produce fatigue.
