Bin ich noch dieselbe Person wie vor der Pandemie?

Nur zu gut erinnere ich mich an den Moment, als der erste Lockdown – wie sich später herausstellte, war das der erste von mehreren – öffentlich angekündigt wurde. Kurz darauf erhielt ich eine Nachricht von einem Freund, der schrieb: „Ich fühle mich nicht wie ich selbst. Ich weiß nicht, was mit mir los ist.
