Do you remember the time when the doctor changed your medication and you were nodding off in the afternoons?
I do. I was falling asleep at work in the mornings. Even though I am no longer on Olexar, I still feel drowsy at some times of the day, but not to the point that I will fall asleep while I am trying to work, etc.

Just say one of them is faulty and you cannot diagnose in the description. It's probably a capacitor on the motherboard, so some dude will take it off you and reuse CPU or fix the mobo, usually it's not that difficult to diagnose if you have some stuff to measure voltage/resistance to see what's wrong if you have a schematic.

If you're PE, if I remember correctly there's a lecturer at NUM that fixes them if interesting, you can also go to the IT department and just ask there.
I don't think people waste time on fixing anymore.

Anyone interested in a i3 8100 CPU? :D

Is this permanent? I was hospitalised after sustaining damage to my vertebral column, and needed help with walking for a while.
I've been improving. Saw the Specialist physician for 6 weeks check.
They told me to walk, had a timer. I Didn't ask how long the time was.
I walked and walked and walked....
When dr saw me he was happy. Says I walked 325m, and they were expecting 200m to show progress.

Checked lungs etc.

Physician says he's happy. I must go to GP in 6 months to check that all is well.
At that point it can be decided when I can have the vaccine should I want it.

I'm ALMOST ready to climb a TK rafter. :D

Covid usually leaves you with very heavy fatigue for at least 2/3 months after it if you get a bad case, usually ~4 month mark most are completely over it (though 5% of hospitalized cases are supposedly 6 months, 1.7% at 1 year so far, but those were stats from ~3 months ago).

Personally I was bad till 3 month mark, no energy, Tribble seems to be doing better than me. :p
While I do "go out of breath" as lungs are still weak I am not fatigued, though I was terribly fatigued prior to going into hospital.

Had a really wild ride and NEARLY pegged.

I am off all meds. Some 4 weeks, others 3 weeks.
Specialist is impressed with my progress,
In hospital already I refused painkillers most of the time the last 10-12 days of my 20 day stay.
Smell never went.
Taste went in high care. Sweet came back first. Savoury about 10 days later.
I went into hospital with covid pneumonia, visible on xrays, but never coughed, sneezed nor blew my nose.
Eyes - no issues.
No chest aches/pains.
No flu type symptoms that indicate "long covid"

I guess I don't fit into their square covid box.

I can't quite walk speedy if I want to not "go out of breath", but it's already improved a lot. I can actually walk stairs without getting "stuck"

Im sure the poor old dear should get a little better. Hopefully with a walking frame she should get back into walking a little further than across the room.

@Venomous Have you received your walker yet?
Nah, told them to re-address it to your place when the courier called to confirm delivery.

Kind of you to pay for it, you can keep it

I'll take it to a PC shop and ask them to test the motherboard, processor and memory. I'll keep you posted on what they say. :)
