This seems the only applicable word for my current state of mind.
Maybe it’s the lack of sleep since my twins were born nearly a year ago.
Maybe it’s the prolonged emotional and mental weariness of being asked the same droning questions, questions which should be hypophoric at this point, in such a rhetorical manner.

Whats it like living in an echo chamber all your life?
Who does Daesh kill. Christians? Jews?

I guess my point is: If you are afraid, we have more reason to be so. If you feel threatened, so do we.
We are all in the same boat.
We all fear sinking.
But, you can no more save yourselves by drowning us, than you can use our blood to keep the sharks at bay forever.
