has anybody got this brain fog after covid? can you share your experiences? I’m having a hard time doing anything that requires too much mental effort. Feeling very confused.
Help me out, everyone seems to be having much milder symptoms with Omicron. Is the hospital capacity issue due to people panicking and going to the hospital despite having mild symptoms or because staff are out with illness? I don’t understand how the medical system is on the brink of collapse right now. Maybe I have a skewed view of Omicron based on anecdotal experience?
Anyone closed on a property during COVID-19 times? What was the process like? (And congrats!!)
Any current/future residents of NYC rethinking moving there as of recent?

Happy 2021 everyone!! If you stayed in town over the holidays and assuming no work, what did y'all end up doing in the last week? As someone who doesn't live with family, I haven't been able to find much to do here during covid times (which took out the causal City / nightlife / dinner outings with friends). I have been to several lakes and trails over my 3 years here but found them underwhelming. Arbor Hills Preserve is probably the only decent place. Suggestions? TIA
