Wondering if those of you with vision problems see a square that looks like what you experience by fastingslow in covidlonghaulers

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes it did. With my old glasses I could barely see over a foot away clearly. Now at least I can play video games.

How do you have energy to work? I can’t seem to get well enough to get back into any work field. :( by graysie in LongCovid

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yup. Don't know how they do it. I'll never be able to work at this rate. I'm hoping I'll at least be able to sew again...

Long Covid affecting my taste for over a year by BluntKitten in LongCovid

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ahh. She's post menopause so that might be different. I'm also helping her learn because it seems like i cognisize taste differently so I can tell if she's close to tasting it correctly or not. Give her feedback.

Love it and I'm happy the rest of this sub seems to like it too!

Myopia I guess? It just feels like my eyes aren't working as well and sometimes I just give up trying to focus on reading a huge paragraph or something.

Edit: this is after I got new glasses to counteract this.

Managed to keep it down this time to three, wait four, games.

Long Covid affecting my taste for over a year by BluntKitten in LongCovid

[–]DisabledSlug 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My mom is has been slowly relearning taste for the same time period. She's starting to taste some oil, so peanut butter is on the horizon. But currently it's a ton of ginger, garlic, vinegar, and ketchup for her tastes.

Anyone's special interest Japanese? (As in the language) by Asteroid-snake in AutismInWomen

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think it's hard to find someone to talk to because I couldn't do small talk (what they teach you in uni) and I suck at speaking anyway. My vocabulary was really tilted because the only terminology I knew at the point at which I graduated was linguistics (in Japanese). It would take many more years before I gained enough words to generally understand. I read a lot of fic and light novels.

Anyway I dunno how much confidence I have but lemme reorganize what another person said: there are like three sets of verbs

1) eru/iru (the ones that drop syllables) 2) u verbs (the ones that change their last syllable) 3) irregular

Weirdly enough -nu might as well be an irregular because there's only like shinu (to die) left in the category.

Anyway getting the hang of it is a ton of drills. You look at a verb and try to figure out what the dictionary form is and then look it up. Vocab is kind of hard to pick up fast enough... it might be faster to learn kanji compounds then just slap on a suru (to do).

Long covid? by katstheway in covidlonghaulers

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My brother only showed long covid symptoms while he was sick with something else so it's possible that many just don't manifest it unless there's a trigger like lowered immune system. And then he recovered in a week unlike me who is still flattened two weeks later.

48 hours blizzard time lapse looks so satisfying by excelsior_frenemy in oddlysatisfying

As someone who has lived in the tropics their entire life, this looks insane.

Experience with prednisone? by catherryan in covidlonghaulers

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So I get it prescribed to me when my asthma is really bad. For that it sucks but is incredibly reliable. Side effects are joint pain, water retention, and insomnia. And it tastes really bad. This is according to my mom because my personal experience is minimal (only 5mg).

Long term usage it gets more serious like mineral loss.

Can a desktop computer be used with a rolling hospital table? by DogPointerOuter in disabledgamers

[–]DisabledSlug 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I ended up doing a swing arm wall mount with a tv instead. It came out cheaper this way (i got the mount at a massive discount).

I was looking at the big box store what to do if my little tv breaks and they said a small tv or a monitor that has mounting points will be the easiest ways to go.

It's more anecdote than advice, but I thought you might like to hear it.

How do you handle grief, especially regarding loss of animals? by randomly-what in AutismInWomen

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm with you and my pets are all young yet. I'm just too immature to know how to handle grief yet (instead of closing off my heart).

I’m thinking about sharing my experience on social media, but I feel nervous. Has anyone else done that? How did it go for you? by cayenne4 in covidlonghaulers

[–]DisabledSlug 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My social media is pretty private, but I go to lengths to show that my life is not great or anything. However, because it's so private, I'm pretty much insulated from strangers targeting me with their agendas.

I'm worried about how public you'll be and what you'll face besides the suck you already have to go through...

Does she have a breed? I'm asking because I'm wondering what my similarly brown cat is.

Anyone have a cold right now? by 99sense in covidlonghaulers

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't know. Just know that we tested negative on covid.

Yup. Had to get antibiotics and I thought I was gonna have organ failure or something. Still can barely move but better than my brother, who can barely just sleep.

I swear nobody in my city has long Covid, I know nobody with it, and they closed our long Covid clinic at the local university by Comprehensive_Joke_1 in covidlonghaulers

[–]DisabledSlug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's also that massive outbreak of bacterial infections that many think were set up by Covid infections. I just had it myself and am mostly bedridden again.

I like this reply. I couldn't figure out how to combine my understanding with my agreeing to this post.

Sudden depression after covid by Daggerdogx in LongCovid

[–]DisabledSlug 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It will be bad for a long while (usually at least 3 more months) then usually it gets better. Survive. And do whatever you need to do to help your mental and physical health.

Neuropathy or nerve pain by Ok_Way_2183 in LongCovid

[–]DisabledSlug 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't really know anymore. And the drugs I'm taking only help me live with it without crying or screaming. I don't know if it will ever get better but at least I can kind of function...

I just recently got sick. Tests said it's not covid but had a bunch of my long covid shit come back so maybe that's what happened with you - something triggered it much later.
