I think the collective world mental health has taken a downturn with what various governments are doing to people and the overall fear narrative. For me things have been slightly worse but it's not all because of the pandemic stuff. It's just been another wasted year. I start each year believing that I can make some progress, but I can't totally blame the virus response for making zero progress. My job has been particularly stressful. I got a promotion I didn't ask for and am making more money than I have, but with that comes more pressure and consideration that I might make mistakes sometimes which hit me very hard.
