|Covid deaths: If you're feeling numb, you're not alone
Flat, disheartened, numb: Just three emotions you might be experiencing at the moment.
And if so, you're not alone.
When the UK Covid death toll reached 100,000, it was a devastating milestone. Now it's over 117,000.
But many of us struggle to process such huge numbers, which continues to get bigger by the day. Carrying on as normal seems inadequate.
But what else can you do?
"No-one is a bad person if they feel a bit numb. It's self-protection," says psychologist and author Dr Meg Arroll.
She tells Radio 1 Newsbeat that lots of us will be suffering from "compassion fatigue", after living through a pandemic for so long.
"Normally you would only see this in doctors and nurses. But because we have these Covid statistics every day and we hear the stories
of people who've passed away every day, feeling numb is a self-preservation process that stops things becoming overwhelming."
