“I wake up in the middle of the night because something worries me or because I feel a weight,” she explained.
“I tried to do sports, but there were times during this quarantine that I just did not have the mental strength.”
56-year-old Michelle Obama she also revealed that she had “the emotional ups and downs that everyone feels. Moments when you do not recognize yourself”.
“This is not a time when we are flourishing spiritually,” he added. “I know I’m going through a form of mild depression.”
“Not only because of quarantine, but also because of tribal struggles.” And to see this government is its day-to-day hypocrisy heartbreaking. “
The United States has been the scene of widespread anti-racist protests in recent months, sparked by African-American George Floyd in late May by a white police officer.
In addition, the former First Lady told her podcast that it was “tiring to wake up and see a whole new story about a black man … who was beaten, injured or wrongly accused of something.”
“And it leads to a weight I have never felt at any time in my life. We are in a unique moment in our history. We are going through something that no one has experienced in their life,” he added.
