Michelle Obama is opening up about suffering from "low-grade depression" amid recent current events. On the most recent episode of her new Spotify podcast, "The Michelle Obama Podcast," the former first lady, 56, revealed, “I'm waking up in the middle of the night because I'm worrying about something or there's a heaviness.” "There have been periods throughout this quarantine where I just have felt too low. I've gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels where you just don't feel yourself," she said in the new episode, that featured award-winning journalist Michele Norris as a guest. "Sometimes, there's been a week or so where I had to surrender to that and not be so hard on myself... It is unusual and it is a direct result of just being out of body, out of mind. Spiritually, these are not fulfilling times."
