I had covid 12 months ago now and I'm still having long term problems, particularly with my memory. Booked in to see a GP to see if there's anything I can do. It's a nasty disease even if doesn't put you in hospital. It does worry me all these kids getting it at the moment, even if only 1 or 2% have long term problems it's a lot of people having to deal with some of the stuff I'm dealing with, it's not nice.
Good luck with the GP. Stay positive. Plenty of techniques people can use to help with memory. Mine went off a bit last year, but it seems to be more or less back to normal now.

Anytime I think I might be a bit off, I always ask myself what I had for my last few meals. Something about eating meals, remembering the taste and smell and putting it all at a specific time in the past helps anchor my recollection of recent days.

Where do we reckon the dotted line is for action being taken when we hit it? There must be a number somewhere that will trigger a reaction surely?

Sorry to hear.
I had memory problems this time last year after catching it in late March. If it's any help this problem went away after a year.
Catching Delta in July, with sniffles the only symptoms, didn't bring it back either.

Thanks, pal. I've heard if it does improve its somewhere between 12 and 18 months so fingers crossed. I guess as with lots of things related to the virus we are still finding out stuff about it.

Thank you!

I'm lucky really, it's only random words I seem to be forgetting, no long term damage (I don't think). But I couldn't remember the word for carrot the other day, very peculiar. Even more embarrassing I couldn't remember Ederson's name at the weekend!
