I got hit.
I am very lucky it wasn't bad but man this shit fucks you up.
It has been over 3 weeks. Medically i'm clear however I lost my sense of smell and half my brain functioning.
The worst part was that I quit my job in mid Jan to restart CubeB3 - my marketing company and a week later I got covid.
My clients are not happy and even after recovering I have moderate brain fog.

Shit mang, thats not good

Ive got brain fog too. I feel like its because the stress and anxiety of this year have just overloaded my mental capacity for clear thinking and made me subconciously lose communication skills. This year aged me 3 years. But i found out recently how to get a covid antibody test, so im going to be getting that asap because i want to know.

Hello how are you all? Did they survive the plague? Are you still playing pso? 😆😆😆
I'm pretty happy that an English-language version PSO2 is finally out on Steam.
I played on the Japanese servers for a little bit in 2014 with a bunch of patches after it was evident that a western release wasn't happening and it was a huge pain to setup. It finally showed up 8 years late but as a Microsoft Store exclusive. Fortunately(?) people ran into enough trouble downloading it from the MS Store that they just put it on Steam.
I didn't know that ... honestly, I've been away from the PSO for a few years ... yet wondering why the Japanese / Chinese haven't asked permission from -CRAB- to open a ship on the sylverant ... all this is very strange and confused ... at first I thought it was due to the fact that sylverant is not known in western Asia ... but after so many years online I don't believe in this possibility anymore ... so why ???

Brain fog sucks. I used to get it as a side effect of migraines all the time a little over a decade ago. At its onset, the sensation felt somewhat like a circuit shorting out. My memory would be intact, but everything my mind was subconsciously prioritizing and organizing around was "reset". It could make whatever I was doing at the time disorienting and even lose its sense of purpose or reasoning to a degree. The situation got bad enough that I started keeping a journal where I'd document everything I ate, drank, hrs of sleep each day I got one. I figured out my "trigger foods/drinks" by trial and error, but it was well worth it. I get them very infrequently now (every few months instead of multiple times a week) and I still get brain fog sometimes, but can usually snap out of it through either exercise, fasting, or both.

I wish you well in your recovery. Good health is the spice of life.

I'm happy to see how big Sylverant has become. I've seen it mentioned in places far and wide.
