What has long COVID taken from you?

Andrew M Zuba: When COVID has taken my, uh, sense of independence, uh, my sense of, uh, safety, I'm not able to travel really outside of my city at all. Um, I can't go anywhere. I can't travel. Um, II, I really can't count on these, uh, systems that, that have been set up to, to help people and I've become, uh, probably much more cynical, uh, because I've always thought that people would always do the right thing and that I've always felt prior to getting on COVID that things would always work out. Um, I don't feel that way, uh, anymore and I would say I'm much more, um, uh, disappointed and, um, a little bit more gloomy, even though I, I have AAA good sense of humor to get me through. Um, I'm just a little bit more, um, cautious, a little bit more afraid of the future, uh, than I was previous.
