Growing evidence suggests that the coronavirus causes ‘brain fog’ and other neurological symptoms through multiple mechanisms.

Do you think the damage is too big? Like for example will it affect me visibly from now on? I got Omicron and I don’t feel like the cough is going away plus I’m worried I’ll be super stupid now. It’s so depressing.

I got COVID after a year ago and my already less than stellar memory has been senile levels of bad ever since. Same thing with my attention spam. Results may vary from person to person, but it’s pretty bad.

The human brain is pretty adaptive and can recover from a lot of things. I had what could be best described as brain fog from another serious infection some years ago, and it slowly subsided over the following months/years to the point where I think it is totally gone now (but part of it might be getting used to a low level?).

oh no I am sorry to hear that.

Thanks for the concern, it’s bad, but I totally see treatments starting to show up in the future, like how people treat Alzheimer and such. Sure they won’t undo all the damage COVID has done, but at least it’ll be something.

Yeah there is hope for sure.

How do you feel about covid conspiracies? I think it’s scary how widespread they are.

You mean like with vaccines and stuff? I mean, I live on Brazil, the president (yeah, that one) has been spreading crap like “COVID is just a small” flu, “chloroquine totally works, guys” and “vaccines bad” from day one, and that took no small part on our road to 600.000 deaths and counting, I’m pretty sure. Just a few months ago he pretty much said on a Facebook live stream that the vaccines cause AIDS, without a care in the world.

Thankfully Brazil was not already a nest of antivaxxers and conspiracy theorists before 2020 like USA was, otherwise I’m sure we would be even far worse than we are now.

This may not seem like great advice at first, but if I were you I wouldn’t worry too much about what you can’t change. Take comfort in the fact that you aren’t alone with this matter and I am sure there will be more insight into your problems in the near future.

Also I still have to get covid so maybe I’ll suffer the same fate, who knows.

I hope at least I can still keep practicing martial arts, if I’m too fucked up for that I will cut my anus until I bleed out.

Maybe a bit more words is required. I’m going to hope you meant “I hope you you will be able to still do Martial arts” rather than the other option.
