Post Whatever You Are Thinking At This Very Moment

i just remembered something else that makes me think I for sure had the corona virus. apparently another symptom of it is loss of smell/taste. i don't think I lost my sense of taste, although I didnt have much of an appetite in general when I was sick, but at Camden market me and swedish guy were smelling candles or soap or something, and I remember pretending that they smelled really good because the vendor was right there and then afterwards telling Swedish guy that I couldn't actually smell them. I hope I didn't give corona to Swedish guy.

it's weird thinking about all those people i met in london only a couple of months ago. some living in london at the hostels, some planning trips to other places, some studying abroad. i wonder how this has affected them, where they are now. I see now that it wouldnt have worked out if i had managed to find a job there and overstay my visa, because i would probably be out of a job now. when i first got back to canada i thought what a mistake i had made, but actually it was quite lucky that i got back just in time, before i had to quarantine myself.

i heard about anosmia being a symptom, too. i wonder whether it is that special, as losing one's smell and taste when having a cold or flu is quite common. i would say it is just one of those general "cold" symptoms that dont really help in pinning down corona.
not saying that you didnt have corona... ;-)

my corona symptoms continue to bother me. no fever, but permanent respiratory problems, nose blocked regularly out of the blue, and a cough that has turned dry over the weeks, so that yesterday i thought i have a so-called "cold pneumonia", as my upper back was hurting so much, especially after coughing, and it felt like an iron clamp pressing on my lungs.
i hope it is just a very severe muscle ache as a result from shoveling and shifting the compost heaps in the garden. had to dig out stinging nettle root works 30 cm deep and bigger tree roots as well.
while there is life, there is hope.

What has your doctor said about your symptoms ? They don't sound great ...

thanks for asking, especially bc my doctor doesnt care, as suspected corona cases simply mean more work for him. so, i try to sweat it out here at home, and next week i will have to go to the doctor again bc of another thing, so then i will know. i got through the worst three weeks ago, but my suspicion is that corona symptoms continue to show after the acute phase, sometimes for weeks, especially the coughing, which would also be similar to the flu.
i hope you are okay and free of symptoms.

My secret's my enzyme.
I have a spool of copper wire in my garage and I’m trying to invent like a paper clip or brush or something to run paper products through it to kill the virus. Apparently copper kills it. I’m developing a type of ocd I’ve never given a shit about. Germs is germs. They’re not all bad. We’re bleaching away so many good ones.

I'm fine and doing well during the increasingly restrictive lockdown period. I'm sorry to hear your doctor is so indifferent. I had no idea corona symptoms could hang around for such a length of time. Hopefully , there'll be good news when you see your doctor next week ...

it's not snowing for a change, meanwhile p. is listening to 'what kind of people live in these houses?', tentatively lowering down on a freshly cleaned blanket in his luxury kitty basket, and i'm gettin ready for the uneventful home office.

Did you watch Mr. Klein?
in case you can enter mubi usa via proxy, they have 'second time around' available which deals with oscar masotta..


Dora García intertwines politics, psychoanalysis and performance into Segunda Vez (Second Time Around). This staged documentary orbits the figure of Oscar Masotta—a pivotal theorist in the Argentinian avant-garde from the 1950s to the 1970s, whilst not being a biopic about him. Masotta’s ideas on Lacanian psychoanalysis, politics and art (happenings and dematerialized art) changed the artistic landscape of that 1960s Buenos Aires preceding the dictatorship and with it the end of the avant-garde.

i was just thinking that i'm gonna watch "threads" any minute, a british 1984 post-apocalyptic movie dealing with a nuclear attack at the end of the cold war.

if this film was an inspiration for edils, i will hopefully still be able to relate after watching.
