I feel really burnt out lately and I'm trying to be more honest about it. I don't have the energy to text my friends back a lot of the time. I feel isolated and want to sleep a lot. Work is ... hard. I've mentioned this to a couple friends, who said they feel the same way.
I feel like we've hit this point in the pandemic that's sort of just a perfect storm for feeling this way. We're six months in, this is just how life is now, and it's lonely and exhausting. Early on, I felt like it was constant trauma, and now I just feel so, so tired.
I don't know how to fix this. Weekends don't feel like time to recharge, but naming how I'm feeling and being open about it has made me feel less alone, so I figured I'd say it here in case it helps other people.

I’m back out tonight covering the #GeorgeFloydProtests in DC tonight with @ellievhall. A huge group of protesters are marching peacefully toward the Capitol as we head toward the White House.
The crowd is as far as I can see down Pennsylvania #DCProtests
National Guard outside the archives, plus lots of SORT (Special Operations Response Team) officers near DOJ. Almost every business downtown is boarded up.
