The chaos of life and its collision with technology and tragedy has more of us feeling drained, frazzled and emotionally overrun.
Put simply: We are exhausted.
What’s to blame? The list is long — and growing, experts say.
Wildfires, terror attacks, rising tensions with North Korea, racist rallies, political investigations in Washington, the non-stop barrage of presidential tweets, more and worse mass shootings from Las Vegas to Florida, a tsunami of sexual harassment accusations, the role of Russians in our elections, climate change, red state-blue state division and not one, not two, but three of the worst hurricanes on record — including one that nearly blew Puerto Rico out of the Caribbean Sea.
Put together, and it’s understandable why exhausted Americans are limping along and running out of gas.
