"What Covid-19 Long-Haulers Want You to Know"--one doesn't always recover from COVID-19 :(

One of the scariest things about COVID-19 for me, as a 71-year-old, is not only that I might die from it, but that I might have to *live* with it for the rest of my life. 😢

I've heard rumors and read tales of trouble from former COVID-19 patients, and now I've seen this article.

Here's more evidence:

"In a Facebook post on July 4, Glosser said: “This morning my mother, Ruth Glosser, died of the late effects of COVID-19 like so many thousands of other people; both young and old. She survived the acute infection but was left with lung and neurological damage that destroyed her will to eat and her ability to breathe well enough to sustain arousal and consciousness. Over an 8-week period she gradually slipped away and died peacefully this morning.”

Some people think that COVID-19 is just another mutation of the flu, but I'm not aware of any version of the flu that can cause lung and neurological damage, not to mention heart damage, chronic fatigue, Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children, and heaven only knows what else. An old friend's son suffered from headaches for several months after having had an allegedly-mild case of COVID-19. At this point, I not sure whether there's such a thing as a mild case. A Facebook friend of mine never had to go to the hospital, but suffered from the aftereffects of COVID-19 for several months.
