    @alafair I’m sorry to hear you will likely have lifelong complications but I’m happy to hear that things are looking up, both in your health and employment.

    Is it legal to lay off a worker who got covid19 at one’s place of employment? And thus kill their insuranced? You should investigate that a bit, I think…

    @alafair, i’m so glad the fog has lifted! I hope that although you currently are looking at implications from long-haul, that the research will continue to improve your wellbeing

    @alafair I’m so sorry that you’re having these complications. This group (which is networked with a bunch of doctors) claims to be having a lot of success diagnosing and treating people with long haul symptoms. They claim to have identified the underlying immune issues. It may be worth checking out.

    Yeah, did you talk to an employment lawyer about the situation with laying you off from a place you got Covid? And aren’t they obligated to offer you health insurance continuation (COBRA)? It’s expensive but at least you still have your insurance while you look to sign up for marketplace insurance. It may be perfectly legal to lay you off after you got Covid at work, but it might be shady and not okay.

    I always consult an employment lawyer when something happens at work. It has 100% always been worth the few hundred bucks because it has led me to be able to negotiate for more, or keep myself from getting into a precarious situation.

    Again, for people who are disgusted by the idea of consulting an attorney, this is NOT about litigating, it’s about advocating for yourself. Employers are only looking out for their interests, not yours.

    Anyway, so glad to hear you’re coming out of Long Covid finally. What an awful thing that is.

    I was curious to hear your thoughts on this, Kate. And yeah… I agree.

    Looks like if the company is at least 20 employees they have to provide COBRA. And typically with your severance, you’ll get some bit of extension of your health benefits before COBRA kicks in, or you can push for it.
