Today I was going to meander on a couple of topics but I haven’t a clue what they where or what I was going to say.
In fact I’m not even sure what I intended to scribble now. Never mind; I’ll just scribble away and see what happens…
Brain fog is a regular if not permanent visitor these days. My thoughts are somewhat random and it has led to my being far more confused than normal. I suppose it’s a function of Old Father Time and there is little I can do about it. I know it was a lot worse a while back but I stopped taking some prescribed tablets and that worked a treat – the fog ceased to be a pea-souper and just became an ordinary fog.
I did read yesterday that many people with “Long Covid” are suffering from brain fog. Welcome to my world. They have also apparently become “problematic drinkers” whatever that means. A problem for whom? What kind of problem? They consume “concerning levels” of alcohol. I consume concerning levels of alcohol every evening and am always concerned that the level in the glass is dropping. I have to keep adding whiskey to ensure the level is correct at all times. Is that what they mean?
I have just had a thought [and this is quite miraculous as brain fog tends to kill all thoughts and turn them into mud]. “Long Covid” causes brain fog and “problematic drinking”? It also causes fatigue. Is it just possible that I have been suffering [and continue to suffer] from Long Covid all this time? I seem to have most of the symptoms.
My brain fog has been around for a while, my fatigue is an old friend and my habit of having a wee tincture each night has been going on for years, certainly long before Covid. So I must have caught Long Covid without ever catching Covid? Maybe the former gave me immunity to the latter when it finally arrived?
Damn! The fog is getting thicker.
Or maybe it’s just low cloud?
