April 19, 2021For more than a year we’ve upended our daily lives and altered our behavior to avoid contracting the coronavirus. Post-vaccination, why are we uncertain and even anxious about taking off masks around other vaccinated people, sending our kids back to school, and returning to the office? For many of us, the transition back to life as we once knew it is marked by trepidation, an emotional response that Dr. Lucy McBride has coined FONO, “fear of normal”. In this episode, we speak with Dr. McBride about pandemic anxiety, how we can confront and overcome FONO and why she believes mental health “defines our health and humanity”.
