Yes to brain fog. I’m barely getting by.

I had bad brain fog. It went away after about two weeks of testing negative. It came back very slowly, I’m still dealing with some around 4 weeks out.

Physically: I take lots of sleep, try to rest more, take it easy, eat well.

Mentally: I had no focus at all in the beginning. Then I gained the ability to focus for 2 seconds, 10 seconds, 20 seconds… slowly. I looked up adhd coping tactics. I now write my tasks down, break them into very very small and minute tasks. I also anticipate everything taking twice as long.

Good luck and rest up.

Yes, developed really terrible brain fog and other neurological issues from COVID. Some hospitals now have long COVID support programs, and even though it took a year and a half, things are more stable with the medications I’ve been given to help with it. Doctors seem to be taking the issue seriously. So I would definitely seek out help.

I had a severe concussion a few years ago. I thought I would have to take leave but I worked with my partners to reduce my work load for a couple of months and help me with deadlines and stuff. I mostly just needed a lot of extra time and hand holding, and had to be really open if an assignment seemed too difficult or if I was struggling with headaches that day.

What does the brain fog from covid feel like? I’ve had trouble focusing the past week, although I don’t believe I had covid (haven’t had any symptoms at least, so haven’t tested). I also have a lot of other random bs going on but my ability to focus has dropped considerably, so curious.

I’m sorry you’re in the same boat (kind of)! Please take care, stress is a killer too, and gl with the other random stuff
