#LongCovid Gestern am Weg zum Arzt. Eine ältere Dame um die 80 geht am Gehsteig vor mir. Ich hätte sie gerne überholt, weil viel zu langsam und es gab genug Platz. Ich konnte es nur nicht. Ich hab nicht genug Geschwindigkeit aufnehmen können, um vorzugehen. Atemnot. Und die Erkenntnis, dass in dem Monat exakt nichts (oder nicht viel) besser geworden ist. 😥
Versnel onderzoek naar behandelingen van #LongCOVID:
Dit is een unieke studieopzet waarin meerdere geneesmiddelen tegelijkertijd onderzocht worden, in een grote internationale samenwerking.
Met deze actie haalt Stichting Long #COVID geld op waarmee nu al 2 projectmanagers kunnen beginnen met administratieve voorbereidingen die nodig zijn voor het onderzoek. Zodra het geld vanuit de overheid vrijkomt, kunnen de klinische onderzoeken dan direct beginnen.
“The people suffering from long COVID need and deserved treatment yesterday”
Burnet Oration: Dr Ziyad Al-Aly urges action for long COVID treatment | Burnet Institute https://www.burnet.edu.au/knowledge-and-media/news-plus-updates/burnet-oration-dr-ziyad-al-aly-urges-action-for-long-covid-treatment/
@jmcrookston I’ll be frank; I was just waiting to see what would happen to his attitude after he finally got #Covid (in March?). Despite a case of #LongCovid that fortunately resolved (he’s one of the lucky ones) that at least got him talking about that more, I was disappointed but not surprised. I really think this virus does something to the human brain. (Maybe to his, maybe not, but attitudes change.)
Actually, I know it does. We both know. There have been studies showing it for 2 years now.
Gut microbes are key to our well-being, I believe. That’s one of the reasons why I choose to eat #plantBased whole foods.
I’ll leave this link here in case you’ve muted my boosts. This is hopeful news for those who suffer #LongCovid.
As @Dbdugger has been saying for years, now..
> A randomized, double-blind. placebo-controlled trial of modulating the gut microbiome is successful for symptom alleviation in Long Covid
Thank you Ziyad Al-Aly for all of your great work. His remarks to @BurnetInstitute :
“We looked at the heart, lungs, kidneys— we saw increased risk of diabetes, mental health disorders, & blood clotting problems. We saw increased risk for nearly every organ system.
#LongCovid seems to be the end result of #Covid19 damaged gut microbes ...
"The gut microbiomes of patients with PACS (long covid) were characterised by decreased microbial diversity and richness and reduced abundance of short-chain fatty-acid producing bacteria after SARS-CoV-2 clearance."

Good for you! Now #PutAMaskOnIt
If you feel the need to #BlameAndShame, look in the mirror.
#CovidVax is not enough.
Wisdom from Canada:
"It’s time for our society to admit that we’ve made a mistake and change course. The #COVID-is-mild experiment, despite the wishing and the hoping, has been a tragic failure. We aren’t just accepting ongoing hospitalizations and deaths to protect the economy, but also ignoring the social and economic costs of continuing high levels of acute infections. Worse still are more cases of #LongCovid ..." #CovidIsNotOver

Vergessene Patienten - Wie Kinder und Erwachsene unter #PostCovid leiden
Kleve: Die Schülerinnen Kathi und Rosa sind nach einer #Corona-Infektion (2021 bzw. 2020) schwer an ME/CFS erkrankt. Jetzt sammeln ihre Mitschüler:innen Geld für eine Therapie (Immunadsorption).
So, were getting these workshop because there's 300 patients on the #LongCOVID waitlist.
This is for one of the two hospital that deals with it here in Montreal.
2nd #LongCOVID workshop
Still very interesting but I'm a bit annoyed that the assumption is a 'default' health state. As in, some of what they says doesn't apply to ADHD brains. For example: stimulants don't have the same effect on us.
#CovidIsNotOver aber überall wo ich Menschen darauf anspreche, gibt es Schulterzucken,
dass in der Kita nur noch eingeschränkt Betreuung stattfindet, dass Unterricht ausfällt, dass jeder jemand kennt, der gerade krank ist, dass wir nicht genau wissen, wie viele Personen nachher #LongCovid haben,
es wird keine Kampagne für #FlattenTheCurve geben
ob es sich über die Feiertage und Ferien beruhigt?
ich glaube kaum.
wie schlimm es werden muss, bis jemand handelt?

"Almost half of all #COVID19 survivors in Africa have long covid; The first three index cases of complete #LongCOVID remission reported; China resumes masking, distancing, mandatory hospital/airport testing; Data: exhaled covid infects “in minutes”; Over 20% of infected infants “classified with neurodevelopmental delay” and much more.
Stay apart, stand together, mask up, & stay strong."
Rekord beim gelben Zettel: Noch nie waren Arbeitnehmer so oft krank
The brain as target of the #longCOVID symptomatology seems one of the most evident sequelae among the survivors. On the other hands, the gender seems to influence the severity of the #SARSCoV2 infection, with higher protection in males during the early phases of the inflammatory reaction but with higher mortality in male patients over the longer time…
Take action to protect people from airborne infections in health & social care settings
- Improve air quality in health & social care settings using ventilation, air filtration
- Reintroduce routine Covid testing
- Ensure staff manuals fully cover preventing airborne infection
- Support ill staff to stay home
- Provide information on use of respiratory masks & #HEPA air filtration against infections

Apparently nicotine patches are a treatment for Long #COVID!!! Gotta get me some NOW! 😂
@BroGle Yes, those were the days before the discovery of antibiotics. Flu, TB - you were taken outside into the sun.
Weird that this important information has been lost. Nowadays many consider that to be nonsense - only a few scientist and medics know that that is not the case. They call on people to spread this information.
I have been trying to do so here on Mastodon. 😃
I myself experienced more energy and less pain (I have #LongCovid ).

#LongCovid #CovidIsNotOver #WearAMask #getvaccinated So I guess that's what Pfizer is doing. They're looking at their losses because of the shitty job public health did getting people to vaccinate, and they're taking out ads everywhere with pictures of unmasked kids saying "Covid Loves A Crowd". And I bet they leaned on their own friendly neighbourhood German Health Minister to say "Hey we're finally going to admit Long Covid is real, and it's actually something to fear, so go get vaccinated because that's all we're willing to do for you and we need to stem these billions of losses Pfizer is dealing with." https://www.fiercepharma.com/pharma/pfizers-groton-connecticut-site-next-line-layoffs-amid-global-35-billion-cost-savings
What a timeline we live in when we are having to actively avoid healthcare settings because going there might be the thing that kills you.
My partner has an eye infection thing, again. Had it in the summer too. And his rash is back. This has been a thing for some time now, along with fatigue, forgetfulness, pains and aches. He also had severe back pain this last week for two days, the week before it was knee pain. He probably has #LongCovid. He is high risk. He is also my everything.
Going to the plague filled local clinic just feels so risky. There are no masks, no vaccines, no social distancing, no ventilation. Nothing. There also seems to be no help or sympathy for this.
I hate it that this is what the world learnt from this. That we can't even protect the vulnerable at all?
This is a friendly reminder that any muffin recipe can be easily made into a loaf recipe. Just extend your baking time.
Most loaves/quick breads take around 50-70 mins, but paleo recipes may take a little longer due to density and moisture. Toothpick test works for all.
This drastically shortens on clean up and prep on both ends. You can also break your recipe up into stages. Mix your dry ingredients, then take a rest before you do the wet and bake.
Hang in there long haulers and tired warriors. You deserve a tasty treat.

New study confirms that swabbing the nose AND throat increases the sensitivity of covid tests https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2812586
"Our results indicate that the throat plays an important role in the initial phase of SARS-CoV-2 infection and that throat specimens should be collected together with nasal specimens to improve sensitivity for rapid antigen testing in both health care and home-based settings."
Hormis quelques très rares potes 💙 et ma compagne 💘, TOUT le reste de mon entourage se contamine du COVID en pleine conscience. C'est-à-dire ces potes me disent qu'iels savent très bien, mais que les loisirs priment (chorale, sports, soirées festives…).
Je pense ne jamais avoir atteint un niveau aussi violent à être témoin que des personnes que j'aime s'en foutent de
1) devenir très durement malades chro #LongCovid #pwEM
2) surtout contaminer des inconnu-es. 💔
I'm reading this letter (2/24/22) to #Democrats for the 1st time 🤬
"Taking the win over #Covid"
"We have the tools..."
Remember when they all started saying that?
"It's time for Democrats to take credit for ending the COVID crisis phase"
So... we're no longer in crisis?? Take a look around. We damn sure are!
"Push for feeling and acting more normal."
NONE OF THIS IS NORMAL!!

See also the links/references below the video.
Michael White says there needs to be more specific #FinancialAssistance for those with the #PostViral condition — range of symptoms affecting some people months after recovering from a #COVID19 infection.
“I feel as though #GovernmentAssistance programs have not evolved to accommodate people like me with #LongCOVID who have no way of knowing when or if they’re going to make a complete recovery,” he said.
This article is well worth a read.
It’s long past time for media/public health to communicate about the significant risk of life altering events after COVID infections. Every time I see an article downplaying the risks of COVID by focusing only on hospitalizations or deaths (which are still a significant risk, to be clear)…I think there’s little wonder people aren’t taking precautions anymore.
[I’m 😷 and 💉x6]
“In this cohort study of 61 male patients with #Omicron infection, the gray matter thickness in the left precuneus and right lateral occipital region and the ratio of the right hippocampus volume to the total intracranial volume were significantly reduced in the acute phase. Gray matter thickness and subcortical nuclear volume injury were significantly associated with anxiety and cognitive function”
More evidence of brain damage following #Omicron infection

"These results robustly demonstrate pronounced cognitive slowing in people with PCC [#LongCovid] which distinguishes them from age-matched healthy individuals who previously had symptomatic COVID-19 but did not manifest Long Covid." https://medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2023.12.03.23299331v1
Pediatric staffing never recovered to pre-omicron levels. Rather, over one in six pediatric beds reported May of 2022: now missing.
PICU Capacity Level (not shown): 73%.
Weekly average ~95 PICU beds were covid patients.
We're failing our kids. The emergency is over.
Capacity Level has been elevated since independence from the virus was declared three summers ago—as fewer & fewer professionals have been available to staff hospital beds.
Critical Staffing Level, already at 2021 levels, has been further elevated for near a year—with over one in nine reporting hospitals at critical shortage.
The article also has a paragraph titled "The ME in the room" & argues: ".. if ME had been studied more thoroughly - or even just believed years ago, much of the foundational work of #longCOVID research may already have been achieved".

“#LongCOVID Research Is a Bit of a Mess”
On current status on Long #Covid research. 386 trials on #PostCovid are underway, but only 94 of those are interventional "...and only 12 trials were testing pharmacological interventions; the rest were testing the effects of food supplements, psychological support, acupuncture and other non-drugs"
Kijk zo kan het ook. In 7 min presenteert de Duitse minister van Volksgezondheid de stand van zaken #LongCovid gevoed door specialisten. In duidelijke taal, feitelijk.

NCHS estimates of #LongCovid—based on Household Pulse Survey—provide for volatile projections.
Census Bureau latest updated early Nov—still no word on next release date.
As more and more folk experience Long Covid, fewer & fewer have been staffing our hospitals.

*Call for contributions from comrades*
We are looking for contributions for a new zine trying to document what it feels like to still be #COVIDing, pushed into social isolation, while just about everyone else has normalized #COVID19. Whether out of caution or because of pre-existing conditions, disabilities, #LongCOVID, we think it is important to communicate how the current situation affects many of us living under the neoliberal system of individualised responsibility.
“the tremendous surge in respiratory virus infections relative to prior years does, indeed, have a scientifically valid explanation: Sars-CoV-2 infection causing immune system dysfunction.
As we face an early increase in respiratory virus infections and heightened severity of these infections “white lung syndrome” filling pediatric emergency rooms around the northern hemisphere in early December a full year later, finally, the hypothesis of “Immunity Debt” is finally falling flat.”

Something I don't see discussed often about #LongCovid is the slow decline path. My kid was just kinda tired & sick-ish for the first 5 months post infection. Then pain & extreme fatigue began. Another 5 months to wheelchair bound & unable to go to school.
Hello Fediverse, hello Bits&Baeume,
I’ve moved recently, time for a (re)introduction — and a heartfelt Thank You! to @ben
I am a writer, copywriter, online editor, and I generally write a lot; I design websites with plain HTML/CSS/JS or using WordPress and other CMS; occasionally I work as a speaker, podcast producer, sound designer — to mention the most important bits.
My blog: https://wernerprise.com/blog (mostly German, but I am considering making it bilingual at some point.)
Climate catastrophe is on my mind, degrowth close to my heart; capitalism needs a short leash!
Also, I still take SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 very seriously. Thus:

Article from Canada (Aug 2023)
Image from AMMES newsletter
ME/CFS Research Published 21 – 27 November 2023
There have been seven new ME/CFS studies and twenty-four new #LongCovid studies this week.
We have highlighted one of the ME/CFS studies in more detail
Three severe #LongCovid patients received monoclonal antibodies and "rapidly returned to normal health and previous lifestyles/occupations [...] still sustained to date over two years later."
"Long COVID Research Is a Bit of a Mess"
“For the past three years, much of the media and discussion around long COVID has treated the post-viral condition as an entirely new illness, a view that has been reflected in its research …
But if ME had been studied more thoroughly – or even just believed – years ago, much of the foundational work of long COVID research may already have been achieved."
