Michelle Obama Reveals How She Is Coping With the Effects of the Pandemic on Her Mental Health

Former First Lady Michelle Obama is opening up about her struggles with mental health amid the coronavirus pandemic and racial unrest breaking out across the nation.

In a new episode of her podcast released on Wednesday, Obama sat down with award-winning journalist Michele Norris to discuss the “relationship with ourselves” and racial reconciliation.

Obama indicated she has been struggling with “some form of low-grade depression.”

“It is unusual, and it is, you know, it’s a direct result of just being out of, out of body, out of mind. And spiritually, these are not, they are not fulfilling times, spiritually,” Obama said.

She added, “Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.”

She said she has experienced “emotional highs and lows” where “you just don’t feel yourself.”

Obama listed some of the ways she manages the difficulties of quarantine including keeping up with a routine, working out, going outside, and having a regular dinner time.

She turned her focus to how racial strife has caused some of her highs and lows.

“They’ve been real for me, and, you know I don’t think I’m unusual, in that, but, I’d be remiss to say that part of this depression, is also a result of, what we’re seeing in terms of, the protests, the continued racial unrest, that has plagued this country, since its birth,” Obama said.

She continued, “I have to say, that waking up to the news, waking up to how this administration has or has not responded, waking up to, yet another, story of a Black man or a Black person somehow being dehumanized, or hurt or killed, or, falsely accused of something, it is exhausting. And, and it, it has led to a weight that I haven’t felt in my life in a while.”

Obama is “heartened” by the “peaceful nature” of protests and feels the nation is making progress.

She explained she gets through the more difficult times by reaching out to her family and friends and staying connected to those that bring her “joy.”

  1. “It is unusual, and it is, you know, it’s a direct result of just being out of, out of body, out of mind. And spiritually, these are not, they are not fulfilling times, spiritually,” Obama said.

    So my advice is to go to Colorado, where the liberals made Marijuana legal and smoke a big joint and get Rocky Mountain High, hippie spiritual, flower child girl! My Lord!! You beau is the very reason this country is as divided as it is…we were all fine before he stepped in and pulled the race card out on everything imaginable!!!

  2. So a crazy person is speaking about mental health? Must be a Demoncrat.

  3. I’m not reading this irrelevant person’s story. Bye Felicia! What is with Democrats not leaving the spotlight? Obozo, Hillary?

  4. “Obama is “heartened” by the “peaceful nature” of protests and feels the nation is making progress.” More lies from an Obama. Over 60 days of riots across the country. Portland OR in constant riots, destruction, occupied parts of Seattle. Only in a deranged, racist mind could this be called peaceful. The Breathe Act, compiled by the Movement for Black Lives, would turn America into a criminals paradise (precisely what the black organizations want). It would eliminate law enforcement, all prisons, DEA, protections in schools, surveillance, facial recognition, border patrol, ICE, gang data base, juvenile detention, drug convictions and more. America would become Somalia. All the former funding for law enforcement and other departments would go to black communities, more free shite. This is what people like the Obamas want for America. That will make this smiling turd happy.

  5. The piranha mouth has been out of her mind for over a decade. She spews nothing but BS. She and the Obamanation are the biggest racists that have ever inhabited the White House. In 8 years and beyond they constantly played the race card.

  6. Poor Michele , can’t decide which room in her mansion she should summon her servants . Mental help? Think of all the suffering she and her husband placed the country under for 8 long years !

  7. She clearly is one of the bigger moronscon the planet. She and her corrupt husband getting a cut of the BLM exrortion?

  8. “Obama is “heartened” by the “peaceful nature” of protests and feels the nation is making progress.“
    Where is this happening? I want to be heartened too. Thanks IJR for giving me a huge laugh. Even though I didn’t care enough to read the whole story of nonsense.
