Almost all of us either had COVID, or know someone who has contracted it. Most people recover and are able to resume their normal lives. However, a growing number of people are left with debilitating symptoms months after they have had the virus. The medical community is advising people with long COVID to rest as much as they can, as they believe that is the best medicine to regain their health. There are a myriad of long COVID symptoms, some of which are severe fatigue, memory and cognitive problems, pain and general malaise. Even the slightest exertion seems to aggravate these symptoms.
At present, Social Security Disability seems to be the only answer, but waiting for a decision can take months, if not years. Hopefully, the Social Security Administration can make some long overdue changes to the program that would help these long COVID strugglers, as well as anyone else who is unable to work a full-time job due to a medical illness, so they can receive disability benefits and Medicare in a more timely manner.
