Women What Whistle

This podcast is about not falling in line or fading away. Stories of bravery, accounts of resilience and even tales of sheer bloody-mindedness. It’s about finding our voice, and sometimes our brave, through the stories of other women who’ve had to find theirs.

Why are we exhausted? Why are we not racing out of the gates now the restrictions are being lifted? Why are we feeling flat? Shouldn't we be feeling more excited and energised? 

We have longed for freedom and now that it is here, we don't have the energy for it. Why is that? In this episode we begin to talk about the exhaustion that comes from prolonged stress, trauma and shock management. I saw a car accident last night and after calling 999 and reeling from the shock, I went numb. I needed to recharge after a surge of cortisol flooded my body to deal with what had happened. It's a similar thing going on right now as we start to step back into life, we are exhausted from coping and there is still more to cope with as we are far from out of the woods.
