This is the Time We were warned about: [redacted] Fatigue

2019-10-21

“[redacted] derangement syndrome” leads to “[redacted] fatigue.”

Jia Tollentino, the New Yorker:

Specifically, I feared that the [redacted] era would bring a surfeit of bad news, and that I would compartmentalize this bad news in order to remain functional, and that this attempt to remain functional would itself be so demoralizing that it would contribute to the despair and distraction that allowed all this bad news to occur.

   …consider how hard it is to understand right away that you’ve been exhausted into submission, especially when submission and endurance feel inextricable. It’s reminded me of how high I’ve let my own hideosity bar get lately, and also of the fact that no one can lower it again but me.
