    First symptom of Covid for me: intensification of sense of taste. Things that were moderately salty became intensely salty. Items that had just a little pepper in them were almost unbearably intense. I could barely stand to eat anything because the tastes were so strong. I had loved to put salt and hot pepper flakes on everything, but suddenly I couldn't bear to add spice to anything at all.. Even milk tasted like someone had added brown sugar to it. The dietary part of it was minor, because the trouble breathing and the need for supplementary oxygen got in the way. Good thing I had the nebulizer and two different ways to increase lung function besides the supplementary oxygen at home, or I'd have been hospitalized. It's more than three weeks on and I'm still nowhere near 100%. Yeah, my O2 readings are often 95%, but if I sit up and take a step they're back to 86 or so. This is going to take a while.
    Glad to hear you're recovering. Was worried about you. Known a few people who didn't make it.

    What a weird virus. Such a wide range of strange repercussions. Read an article where some guys are suffering ED after having it.

      Wow, I hadn't heard of that symptom. Mostly I'd heard of the opposite (no taste no smell). Sorry its hard for you!

      • Here's a fun one: detraque, detraques, meaning someone who is dangerously deranged.

        Certainly, that's a word that most of us could find use for every day. Whether accurate or exaggerated.

        • I've yet to find Rutherfordium, but will settle for kurchatovium any day. (just love those k's)

          Adding an "s" was a bit unexpected. (Who in a lab ever pluralizes single elements?)

          but...

          Why not gamble?

          This game has so many unexpectednesses.
