What's her point of reference on this? I mean we all know what a hydraulic millipede or a pneumatic scorpion feels like, but an electrical centipede?

I have electrical shock running through my body. It feels like an electrical centipede.

To be fair, that could just be part of a superhero transformation.

Artist: backhand.slap.of.reason: Chuck87: Is it possible that the COVID has been eliminated but that it damaged her nervous system?

It's possible that SARS-CoV-2 persists despite seroconversion.  It's also possible that the virus has been eliminated, but that the changes it made to her cells remain.  It's also possible that the signaling dysregulation that is a hallmark of Covid-19 shifted her body to a new hormonal equilibrium that is stable but suboptimal and ultimately injurious.  The CDC was created to figure stuff like this out, but with Trump at the helm it functions only to obfuscate the extent and severity of the epidemic-it's compromise is complete.

The only way Trump* might "understand" COVID, is when Ivanka gets it.


But if she gets seizures like the woman in TFA, it would make "Daddy time" that much more enjoyable.

Long Covid is super rare.  Only 1 out of every 5 PCR confirmed cases develops Long Covid symptoms. With 7.5 billion people on this Earth and only 20,000,000 cases that's virtually nobody.  Why you libs gotta fearmonger all the time.


Because they are libs.

Everybody knows that white people who aren't over a hundred years old just get the sniffles and are better in three days.

I'm pretty sure I had it back in February, while in rehab.  Laid in my bed for a week feeling like a belt was tightening around my chest.  I really thought I might die, that I had kicked heroin and was going to die of the flu.  Couldn't taste food or tell a menthol from a regular cigarette for a month.  Would see this repeating set of light flashes when I closed my eyes for several months. That was February and I am still inordinately tired all of the time. Whatever it was, it changed me. Thanks Obama!

I'm already blaming it for being overweight.

Watch the video at around the 1:04 mark.

They cut the clip short, unfortunately. It does look like she got everything conceivable except organ failure and death. And it didn't mention if she's is still positive, bu I suspect not or they would have certainly mentioned it.

Probably got a massive, short term exposure to the nose and it got in very aggressively through the olfactory nerves, well before it made its way into her lungs. The gastro symptoms have been most intriguing got me, and makes me seriously wonder if people experiencing that got infected through contaminated food or drink. Its hard to fathom it getting into the inner intestinal lining through the bloodstream unless you have extreme viral load in your blood stream, which at that point you'll be wishing you were dying of dysentery instead of covid.


I've had dysentery so bad I wished I were dead.  1/5 stars.  Would not recommend.

Legit question: Have you considered PTSD? I'm no doc, but it's what popped into my head when thinking of causes for "I feel like I have a massive temperature, but objectively I don't".

Dude, holy crap, I had no idea that was a thing with PTSD. I *definately* have some form of PTSD, as told to me directly by my Doctor. "You almost died, Znuh." She said. "You of course have PTSD from this."

As far as my non-medical understanding goes, PTSD symptoms can basically be anything that happened to you during the traumatic event.


Or, you know, completely made up

A medical doctor isn't qualified to diagnose PTSD

Defund testing! hashtag f*ck liberals

Bingo. I read TFA but it didn't mention whether or no she was actually still positive. But yea, extensive neurological damage has been done, and may, unfortunately, be permanent.
