More Covid advice: I learned from a little research that Covid affects the lymphatic system, and this may account for the symptom of fatigue. If you catch Covid, work on lymphatic recovery, and don’t pay much attention to comparisons to the flu. Covid seems to last about three times as long, for one thing. In my case, the fatigue has been much more debilitating than any respiratory symptoms.

Here’s a good daily tonic: One part Kombucha tea, to two parts pomegranate juice. Kombucha is a fermented drink that restores balance to your bacterial population. Pomegranate has Vitamin C and potassium. Fruits and juices are generally good for your lymphatic system, along with leafy greens. For exercise, do light weights, and slow stretches, as in yoga or tai chi. That type of exercise releases the lymph, while a jog or long walk might stress your lungs and isn’t as beneficial for fatigue.

It looks like a rough season of winter illnesses ahead, so best of luck to everyone, and take good care of yourselves! 


On Monday, The Folly, a sample from the Battle Stations arc. Tuesday, The Mirrors, with Charmante and William learning one of the island’s secrets. Thursday, Catastrophe, Senator Knight and his political enemies at odds over versions of events.
Images on my posts sometimes have a link to related information (click first image), sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
