Pandemic Fine — noun — A state of being in which you are employed and healthy during a pandemic but you're also tired and depressed and feel like trash all the time.

I'm really tired of feeling pandemic fine. I'd be okay with it if there was an end point, even a distant one.
There isn't one. I don't even know when the vaccine will be available.
In moments like these, I remind myself that I have much to be grateful for. I have a home, a job, and a pantry with plenty of food.
In moments like these, I find it important to acknowledge when things suck. In this moment, things suck.
It won't always be like this. Things will get better, even if we don't know when.
Until then, please, I'm begging you -- wear your mask.
