They'd better find this Brian character, if he really might be that dangerous.

Well duh?  Every COVID infection does some amount of permanent damage to your organs.  Far, far less if you're vaccinated, but not 'zero'.

This is why it's not crazy to say we should still be masking up and getting our boosters... because it's not a single round of COVID you need to worry about, it's the cumulative effect of all the COVID infections you'll have during the remainder of your life.

That would explain my moron of a son. No, wait, he's simply a teenager.

I'm so old I remember when we used to call it industrial disease.

Good new, everyone.  It might not be long Covid.

You can also get similar symptoms from jerking off: https://metro.co.uk/2022/10/12/men-can-be-allergic-to-their-own-orgasms-and-sperm-study-shows-17548518/

Is this how the human race dies? A slow fall into idiocracy? I mean, it could get worse, but I don't see how.

So what I'm starting to fear is that after about ten more years of everyone letting this monstrosity infect them on an annual basis, I'm going to be
- the smartest man alive
- the only one left who can run a mile walk up a flight of stairs without gasping
- the only one who can still achieve an erection despite now being in my 40s

By 2060, the idea that the majority of my grandparents lived well into their 90s will be dismissed as a fantasy. As will my claim that when I was young, yes people really did gather inside by the thousands without masks and nobody got sick as a result.

Hadn't thought of that angle.  I'm going to be in huge demand for stud services, even pushing 60 by then.

All those desperate 20-something women who want babies and will need a guy who can achieve an erection and last long enough to reach orgasm.

Finally, I'll make up for being terrified of sex during the AIDS epidemic!

Neither of those citations supported the above claim.  Yes, we know that some COVID infections can cause permanent damage.  The claim was that every COVID infection does so.

This is a better article: https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2022/09/long-covid-brain-fog-symptom-executive-function/671393/

I've dealt with this for many years, and it's no picnic. Can't remember most things, can't articulate the right words, random stuttering, barely any motivation to do anything. Everything is overwhelming, even making the most basic decision of what I want to eat. It's just easier to only eat one meal a day or not eat anything at all. The worst part is no one believes you, and even if they wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt there is no treatment.

The accompanying fatigue is the worst, just various degrees of feeling like shiat, all day, every day. I woke up about an hour and a half ago, had a cup of coffee, and I'm ready for a few more hours of sleep. It used to be so much worse, it was hard to even be awake for 8 hours in a day.

The only thing that's helped at all was weed, and even then I had to pair it with de-stressing my entire life and mindfulness to make any progress. It being illegal has been a major roadblock, let alone being able to hold down a job to afford it, but I'm marginally better than I used to be so that's neat.
