For those who had COVID and lost your sense of taste, did you lose it completely or were the flavors just less strong?

Lost mine 6 days ago, tested positive, last couple of days I’ve started to smell if I really concentrate and put something right by my nostrils! Hoping it comes back fully soon...

I lost my sense of smell for a few months but it slowly came back and now I can smell fine.

It didn’t completely go away. Things were muted and I couldn’t taste subtle flavors (like butter on toast), but I could taste if something was sweet/salty. My smell completely disappeared for a day or two and very slowly started coming back. 7 weeks later.. smell is still slightly muted and comes and goes. I think that is impacting my taste slightly too.

Lost taste and smell really quickly, like a switch just turned off. After about a week, started to come back s.l.o.w.l.y. After two weeks it’s at about 80%. I have seen that burning an orange with the peel on, the eating the insides, after taking off the charred peel of course, can help boost the senses to come back quicker. Don’t know if there’s anything to that, but may be worth a try.

Always thought I would be with a NYC guy on fun, fancy dates in my future.

It feels like I’m settling and I’m so jealous of the people who do have the fun, exciting life in the city I dream of.

Do you lose maternity benefits if you make partner? I’m up for partnership this year and my firm doesn’t know I’m trying to get pregnant. I’ve heard people say in the past they lost all of their accrued vacation when they became partners because they are no longer employees. Do partners get paid maternity leave where you are? Would I be entitled to FMLA protection? I’m our breadwinner so losing 24 weeks of paid leave (mat+accrued vacation) would be a big hit.
