Long COVID scares me more than COVID itself.

America threw mental healthcare out the window WAY before it gave up on COVID.

syrynxx: Long COVID scares me more than COVID itself.


Yep.
Long COVID and all the things we don't yet know about it are the reasons I still mask up religiously.

I have a cow orkers who have had covid multiple times. they are noticeably slower than they were mentally.  terrifying.  but hey, you know, brunch!

also, 2 of them died. it's very strange to me that we all just decided this shiat is over. oh well.

I'm vaxxed and boosted out the wazoo, but I'm gonna start blaming long COVID for all the stupid shiat I have yet to do.

This virus seems like both the test of, and the inevitable solution to, a culture of exploitation.

It has already brought down several psychopaths, shat on a few real estate assholes, eroded the massively inefficient office culture, brought increasing amounts of free healthcare to the masses, and culled an ever-growing number of irrecoverably Stockholmed exploitees.  Next up, the lie of "lazy workers," apparently.

Given enough time, we can simply convert some of those bars that COVID deniers insist on packing into dementia treatment facilities. The patients themselves won't know the difference.

We're apparently about to elect an entire political party's worth of psychopaths to Congress because gas prices, so I wouldn't be so hopeful.

There will still be the original psychopathy, but with extra dementia.

I've gotten the fatigue a bit since having covid, but the brain fog issues appear to be minimal.

Brain fog? Thank God it isn't a brain cloud as there is only one outcome for that.

syrynxx: Long COVID scares me more than COVID itself.


I'm a little worried. Didn't get it early, we first got it in January, then I got it again about 6 weeks ago. But I have ZERO endurance. I work for a bike company, and we ride a lot, for obvious reasons. I also had the pleasure of having lymphoma during the pandemic, so I was already expecting to have issues, but I did OK on rides last summer. This summer, if I push myself at all, I end up wheezing and hooting. I sound like the wind whistling through a cabin in the woods. I don't know if it's the cancer or the Covid. If it's the cancer, it's easy, I just rebuild my endurance and muscle. But if it's Covid, I'm afraid that means this is permanent. Luckily, the people I work with are super cool and our Wednesday rides are "no drop" rides, meaning no pressure, and nobody drops. When someone is done, we all turn back.

Not true. It was Ronald Reagan who got all those people out of those ineffective and abusive mental asylums.

I only got it for about a week after I got Covid. But it was farking weird. I had to cancel my doctor's appointments and had been waiting for the clinic to call back. They did, I met the new cancer study coordinator, we talked about the rescheduling, and why it was crucial that it happen soon, and he said he would call back. Half an hour later, the wife called and asked for an update, and I told her that I was still waiting for an initial call back. it was like 2 hours later when I remembered that I'd talked to this dude and was just waiting for him to give me new appointment dates.

I don't want dementia.  I mean, fark cancer, but fark dementia too.

Maybe I should start doing horrible things now, so if I get dementia, I will forget them.

So if long-COVID is going to render me a drooling mass of jelly on the floor of some third-rate "memory care" facility, what the f*ck am I doing putting 10% of every paycheck into a retirement account?

Not sure if double post due to weird internets, but I took the repost as being clever, hence the funny.

People reach a point where they reject a stressful situation if they don't accept it as a normal response and return to their own normal.

Avast ye Scallywag: /long Covid not funny


Depends on who has long COVID.

Essential workers (remember that phrase?), hospital staff, and other people who took as many precautions as possible and still ended up with COVID, then long COVID?  Not funny at all.

Idiots who refused to quarantine, mask, distance, and vaccinate, all because they have the right to be an idiot?  Not only do I find that hysterically funny, I hope they and their families suffer.  I hope their lives are completely destroyed, that they can't enjoy a single thing they enjoyed before the pandemic began.

Will there be a separate facility for vaxxed people with long COVID?

Long COVID risk falls only slightly after vaccination, huge study shows
The researchers found that vaccination seemed to reduce the likelihood of long COVID in people who had been infected by only about 15%

America has NEVER had anything approaching decent mental health care. As a matter of fact we're probably as close right now as we've ever been to it

God decided that we had increased our average lifespan too much and gave us COVID to bring it back into alignment.  Similar as to how prior to the great flood people could live for 900 years, but after the flood with the cloud cover gone, UV started aging people faster.  Since age is just corruption in DNA, the more frequent the replication errors acumulate the faster a person ages.

COVID causes microclots, which cut off blood to bits of your organs, those bits die off, making the organ less effective.  This does not heal.

Vaccines reduce the chances of this happening, and reduce the severity if it does.  Masks reduce the chances of this happening.

Yes, we're all going to get a tiny bit less healthy with every COVID infection.  Yes, that's going to add up.  But if you mask and vaccinate and don't have a pre-existing condition, it could be by a small enough amount you never notice.  We hope.

After all, nobody's done a 6-decade study on the cumulative effects yet.

It's far scarier than regular Covid.  A week or two on a ventilator before death is a mercy compared to euthanasia via neglect in a care home run by whatever maniacal entity replaces our collapsing government.

The virus is like a water balloon filled with a poison catalyst that drives the Complement System nuts.  Exercising increases the rate at which they virus pops.  You may want to try Berberine, Rutin, and Lutein supplementation.

Berberine is an antiviral.
Rutin inhibits the Classical Pathway of Complement, which is responsible for popping the virus.
Lutein decreases serum Complement components.  Think of it as less wood for the fire.

These may help you, and they may not.  It is definitely worth a try as buying all 3 will put you out less than $60 on Amazon.

Here's a video to introduce you to the Complement System, even if you know what I'm talking about, it is still good for a review:
