    I'm a 59 yr old female that was diagnosed with and in critical care for Covid-19 in March 2021. I had a very serious case, and looking to participate in any studies that may assist in determining the long haul effects. I am still on oxygen while sleeping, my oxygen dips into the 70s and rarely averages in low 90s for a 24 hr period. I also have some other lingering symptoms. Finally, however, after 20 months the brain fog lifted. The brain fog was very difficult to get through. I lost all of my hair which it still not mentioned in any articles I read, but there are thousands that have experienced this effect, my taste and smell is still off. Please contact me if you would like further information, thank you.

      I to got Covid 19 and spent 10 days in an ICU. Having seen the scans by rights I shouldn't come out of there alive. Consultant wanted me on a ventilator when my O2 sats were dropping fast. I asked whats the alternative? palative care was the reply. I demanded my B12 injection which I get monthly and was overdue and was given it same day. Within 24 hours my sats had improved significantly and 5 days later I was back on a normal ward. i was discharged a week after that. The following B12 injection was done at the GP's surgery and my sats went from 91 to 95 overnight. If they had put me on a ventilator the nitrous Oxide gas they use would have depleted my already low B12 levels further and I would undoubtedly have died. A lucky escape. I have developed symptoms of 'Long Covid' but having taken to self injection of B12 they have markedly improved since starting SI weekly.

      I'm a 55yo female who 1st tested 1-8-23. I remained positive for 17 days & although I've tested negative, am feeling just as many if not more symptoms now including now on oxygen at night,  but the brain fog is the one I'm most concerned with. Some days I can't even complete a simple thought like "I'm hungry. I need to eat." I've found myself in middle of kitchen floor not even being able to open a can of corn! This scares me beyond words. I wish there were more studies on brain fog because I honestly feel like I'm losing my mind but my Dr doesn't seem to be concerned with this at all.
