Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Did they have Covid-19?



The ones I am thinking of? ABSOLUTELY!

But some others

That prob has more to do with quarentene than COVID

Oish. May I recommend some therapeutic treatment?

I just heard a recording of the Klausenburger Ruv (his yahrtzeit is today) relating how he refused to eat Treif when he arrived at Auschwitz, and how desolate he felt when all of a sudden someone came looking for him with food and he came to the realization that Hashem was with him even there in the camps of death.

I found his way of expressing himself so candid and honest. It was very refreshing after living in our times when we are all surrounded by so much deceit and lies, all we hear on the news is more dumb politics, and more dumb politicians.

ETA: I really shortened the story. Here is an audio clip of the Klausenburger Ruv Zatzal relating the episode (with English subtitles). https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fUyfVMnV5qPjiKiR-JGG3NLN6I74tHWz/view?usp=drivesdk

Have you had Covid? I've found that when people find others edgy it's a sign that they are edgy.

covid can have an affect on the central nervous system. (no smell, for example)
Having a brush with death can have a mental health affect.
Long term fatigue, especially when it seems like you're the only one, or you wonder if your fatigue is real, can be very frustrating.

If anyone here is knowledgable on the havoc wrecked by the Spanish Flu, you'll know that beyond a % of survivors developing schizophrenia, and beyond the fact that babies born to surviving mothers were shorter and weaker than those born earlier, later, and to non-infected mothers, there were also many cases where patients developed CFS/ME.
Regarding those who are edgy- it's been documented that Woodrow Wilson was increasingly irritable and edgy after his brush with the flu (although he suffered a stroke as a result of the flu so I'm not sure I'd blame the flu- I'd rather blame the stroke).
At this point we can still blame quarantine, but as more time passes we'll have to start considering the possibility that yes, it's possible some of us have developed chronic illnesses/conditions that are here to stay.

Since there's been some talk up thread about how few of you know people personally who have lingering (hopefully not long-term) effects:
My parents both claim that they've not regained their strength and tire easier than before.
I myself, who had a borderline serious case (oxegyn was in the 86-90 zone for a few days but I managed to stay out of the hospital) have noticed a  definite change. Walking up a flight of stairs now means taking a rest. I will point out that it's been harder to work out due to restrictions, and it might be an effect of me being more sedentary than usual, but I've also never been out of breath when climbing a flight of stairs, regardless of my current workout schedule. I'm not ready to draw conclusions at this point, although I do plan to request a chest xray at my next annual checkup to confirm that there's been no damage (there are a few more symptoms I've noticed so I'm pretty sure my doctor won't deny my request).

Maybe s209 can write up a survey asking for all the data points. Are you more edgy, did you have corona, do you have other stressors like loss of parnosa, kids not in school or camp, having lingering weakness, getting frustrated with thickheaded fellow DDFers etc and then we will know if it's caused by corona.

Personally I am probably more edgy but besides having had corona (not seriously) I also have/had most of the other stressors

I haven’t (AFAIK).

Good point, but you know what else causes you to find others edgy? Others being edgy ;)

I know this is weird and purely anecdotal but some of the people I know who’ve had moderate cases of COVID (sick in bed, high fever, some with lower oxygen, but not hospitalized) have seemed very nervous and on edge since. They’ll get angry at very little provocation, get annoyed with little things that didn’t seem to bother them before, more anxious, etc. As I said, very weird. Anyone else find this?

I know some will say this is due to quarantine but I’m specifically referring to people who’ve had moderate cases of COVID. I’m not sure about severe cases but I haven’t seen it in people who haven’t had it or had very mild cases.

I wonder if it's tied to the shortness of breath and lack of stamina people seem to be experiencing. Maybe it's causing something similar to sleep apnea, where the sleep cycles are interrupted. This can cause fatigue, irritability, jumpiness, anxiety, and the like. It can also by cyclical, in that the lack of sleep impairs the lungs or respiratory system to repair themselves, causing more interrupted sleep patterns.
Please wear a mask.

Interesting that it's marked enough for you to notice.
I attribute short temperedness on the internet to quarantine.  Not enough purposeful things to do.
