syrynxx: Long COVID scares me more than COVID itself.
scumm: 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!
koder: 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.
covalesj: So if everyone in red states gets dementia...would we notice?
NateAsbestos: America threw mental healthcare out the window WAY before it gave up on COVID.
optimistic_cynic: I've gotten the fatigue a bit since having covid, but the brain fog issues appear to be minimal.

scumm: also, 2 of them died. it's very strange to me that we all just decided this shiat is over. oh well.
Avast ye Scallywag: /long Covid not funny
Fursecution: covalesj: So if everyone in red states gets dementia...would we notice?There will still be the original psychopathy, but with extra dementia./So they got that going for them,//which is nice.
isamudyson: Brain fog? Thank God it isn't a brain cloud as there is only one outcome for that.
Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: 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.
MythDragon: NateAsbestos: America threw mental healthcare out the window WAY before it gave up on COVID.Not true. It was Ronald Reagan who got all those people out of those ineffective and abusive mental asylums.
wage0048: 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?
Ravage: Similar as to how prior to the great flood people could live for 900 years
Mikey1969: 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.
backhand.slap.of.reason: 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.
