I'm so sorry. I am a very optimistic person in general and have struggled to stay positive for the past few months. But today is difficult. We are in a massive Covid spike and the people who are supposed to be protecting us are doing nothing and accusing us of being concerned.

And that was all avoidable. I look at the Covid cases and deaths in other countries and it feels like they are in another world. Are you dealing with the same disease that we are? I think that's the difference. You deal with it. Were not. We have politicized every repression.

Sleepless nights, because what happens when the person lying next to you in bed gets sick is a sign of weakness. Science is a sign of weakness. We could have done so much more to prevent all these losses. But it's not his fault. It's China's fault. 8 months and we're still here.

I don't think I have anything constructive to say. Just be careful out there. I'm afraid we have a bad few months ahead of us. And I feel hopeless and helpless today.

In fact, pls reply with worthy organizations we can donate to.

I will try to get back to optimism now.

"Wearing masks is a sign of weakness," he writes. “Protecting your friends, family and neighbors is a sign of weakness. Getting your heart broken by increasing cases every day is a sign of weakness. Worrying that the next text will contain unthinkable news is a sign of weakness. Sleepless nights, because what happens when the person lying next to you in bed gets sick is a sign of weakness. Science is a sign of weakness. We could have done a lot more to avoid all these losses. "

"But it's not his fault," he tweeted, apparently referring to Trump. "It's China's fault. 8 months and we're still here."

When Nanjiani found that he is usually more optimistic, he also acknowledged the aftermath of the pandemic and the prospect of a harsh winter that has affected his mental health.

"I feel like I'm working (really) hard to keep all of these doors closed on my head and trying to keep all of these scary / sad / devastating thoughts out of my head," he says. “Focus on the positive. Donate to charity. The people out there are doing a fantastic job. Most of the time it works. But not today."
