Getting Past the Sixth Month Wall

 About a week ago, I stumbled on a Twitter thread by Dr. Aisha Ahmad, who said, "I *always* hit a wall 6 months into a tough assignment in a disaster zone."

She noted that we are six months into the pandemic, and "at best, we are only 1/3 the way through this marathon." She then offered suggestions for how we can get through this:

It's all very reassuring, especially since lately I've felt - not depressed ... more weary. Now I have hope and faith that in a few weeks, I'll feel more like myself. And hopefully you will, too!

Thanks for this. I've really been feeling it. So I've found myself reading a few entertaining-but-decidedly-light "cozy" mysteries in a row, setting aside the more "worthwhile" books that I "should" be reading. I'm not even beating myself up about it, just sinking into them.

Glad it helped - let me know what you're reading, I need some fun books too!
