    • I would think that if it was Corona-related, it would have shown up a long time ago.  I have similar problems with my tongue form a severe sinus infection that caused a hemmorhage in my eye.  At that point, half of my tongue was twice as large as the other half and it would go to one side when I stuck my tongue out. Hydration tends to be a factor with what I say.  Try drinking more water.
    • I am 47. This past May I had covid, not bad case. I notice more of foggy head at times and memory not as crisp at times, but not bad. But about 5 days ago I noticed that I felt moments like I wanted to say one word and another one that was similar came out. For example at store I said I would like to play instead of “pay”. Also, I think I am going to say “the kids went to the store but out of my mouth is “the kids have gone to store”….that freaks me out bc I think I was going to say the first sentence….That is happening to me more the past 5 days. I feel out of it too for periods when this is going on. I feel like my tongue is thick and heavy and that I slur a few words but my wife swear I sound fine. I also think of words in my head and almost worry that I will slur or not say them correctly. I feel super anxious during this and almost in panic and like brain fog. This past June I had fear of ALS with foot but that is better.  SO I am freaking out thinking I have early onset dementia, ALS bulbar, or permanent cognitive damage from Covid. I'm feeling very panicky. Sorry guys
    • Humans getting rabies is very rare but it’s a good idea to see a doctor just in case 
    • For the last week and a half we have been taking care of an injured squirrel that fell from a tree in our yard. This morning the squirrel was lethargic and ended up dying.  I immediately thought it might have rabies and I had been handling it and preparing it’s tiny bottle and syringe with my bare hands.  I have cuts around my cuticles where I pick and then and now I’m afraid some saliva might have entered these cuts.  Im freaking out!  I talked to a squirrel rehabilitation place and the guy told me that squirrels don’t really get rabies and I would be fine.  I’ve also got a call out to my vet and animal control.  Waiting on them to call me back.  My anxiety is through the roof and I want to go to the ER!  Does anyone happen to have information about squirrels and rabies or advice on what I should do?
    • In my room, caused by furniture scraping up against it for years. Getting scared that it could cause health issues in me, from asbestos or something similar. I know our house did have a mold issue but I’m not sure what else they checked for.
