#LongCOVID has similar effects on people and is believed to also be
caused by neuroinflammation.

Lead author Emeritus Professor Warren Tate, of the University of Otago's Department of Biochemistry, says how these debilitating brain effects develop is poorly understood”

“Emeritus Professor Warren Tate says it took two decades for #chronicfatiguesyndrome research to be taken seriously, yet after a decade of good work it is still a mission to secure funding.

Many with #longCovid are finding it difficult to describe what they are feeling. Those of us in the #MECFS and #ChronicLymeDisease #EDS community have had longer to think about and put these experiences into words…
Post-viral illness wreaks havoc on multiple systems within your body which of course are interconnected. The way I describe it is that you are losing your body’s life force — this is different from your soul. And it’s not just energy. It’s your actual life’s force.
In the beginning when you first get sick, you can still feel the healthy parts of you versus the sick parts — kind of like layers of an onion.

But eventually the sick parts seep into the healthy parts and you can no longer distinguish between the two.
