Clearing the fog : from surviving to thriving with long COVID--a practical guide / James C. Jackson, PsyD.

Summary:

"Early in the Covid-19 pandemic, the shocking mortality figures obscured the fact that death is not the only adverse outcome of the virus. Today, as many as 30 percent of Covid-19 survivors still experience symptoms long after their acute illness has passed, with cognitive and mental health problems especially prominent. In Clearing the Fog, neurp[sychologist Dr. James C. Jackson offers people suffering from long Covid, and their families, a road map to help them manage their "new normal". Focusing on cognitive impairment and mental health issues, he shows the ways in which those can manifest and disrupt, offers suggestions for how and when to seek professional evaluations, discusses science-based treatment options and strategies, provides information on navigating healthcare systems and disability insurance, and offers validation and hope as patients wrestle with their new diagnoses."--Jacket.
