  1. This is what annoys me the most. People that say COVID isn’t a big deal don’t realize the damage it does to your body that you can’t see. Now imagine the lungs of someone who’s had COVID 10 times 10 years from now.

    I’ll probably never stop wearing a KN95 in public places like the grocery store, etc. I also haven’t been sick since December 2019.

  2. I understand that parents were forced to send their children back to schools and that authorization of vaccines was criminally slow for under-16’s, so this is not intended to blame anyone at all for doing what they had to. However:

    >All but one of the patients had been unvaccinated at the time of original infection.

    I feel like this is an important gap for follow-up, as well as needing to follow up about long-term changes/improvements/decompensations (this study appears to be cross-sectional).

  3. definitely feel like I’ve had some lingering effects myself after getting it in May. my cardio wasn’t impacted too bad but I have been couching up thick nasty mucus every day

  4. I sometimes feel like we don’t know anything more about covid than we did three years ago. Even as a scientist myself, when I try to do my own diligence with professional resources is either “it’s a cold” or “everyone who gets it is gonna die”.
    I know research takes years or decades, but the layperson’s communication from the medical community has been awful. This why people give up. I hate this timeline.

  5. I’m starting to wonder if 50 years from now life expectancy is going to drop back down to 50-60 due to continual damage from Covid. It seems to permanently damage almost every major system in our bodies.

  6. I also have covid-based lung damage, 4x vax doses, late 20s. I got covid around 6 weeks ago and have had a wheeze ever since. More recently ive had a minor amount of fluid on my lungs (about 2 weeks). Was told it likely isnt permanent but that itll be 6 to 8 months before the issue resolves itself if its going to
