Long COVID is a real thing, but a whole constellation of differing and horrible issues. So far it has cost me 2.5 years of my life, meaning I have yet to return to pre-COVID ability, with 5 or so waves of remission and recurrence over 2.5 years, probably auto-immune driven.

Brain fog, fatigue, and other Long Covid symptoms affect the lives of many people who have recovered from COVID-19. It is generally believed that healthy young adults can recover to a large extent after contracting COVID-19.
However, a new Swiss study found that 10 months after contracting the covid, they still have some persistent sequelae, especially Increased BMI (body mass index), high cholesterol, and lower physical stamina, which is suggestive of a higher risk of developing metabolic disorders and possible cardiovascular complications.
...The results of the study found that people who tested positive for more than 180 days had a significant trend in metabolic disorders, including increased BMI, cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein, compared with those who tested negative. They also exhibited lower physical stamina and increased risk of possible cardiovascular disease.
The research team said that even a mild new coronavirus infection should not be underestimated. These findings have social and public health implications and can guide treatment research and policy support for COVID-19 sequelae in young adults.
WIND: do the COVID Jabs prevent Long COVID? I have yet to see any serious study of the matter. Such benefits would have to be weighed against the risks, which are problematic for young people, especially young males, which our society deems expendable.
