Some people feel nothing when they get COVID-19; others die. And still others are maimed, possibly for life—dubbed "Long Haulers," they suffer from Long COVID, a series of symptoms that make life nearly unbearable. Natalie Lambert, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Medicine in the Medical School at Indiana University, is perhaps the country's top expert when it comes to Long COVID and she has pinpointed which symptoms that are the most common. Here are the 5 longest-lasting symptoms that are experienced by the most people who took her survey. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss the full list of Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 You Are Likely to Feel a Long-Lasting Fatigue According to Dr. Lambert, the majority of her subjects struggled with severe exhaustion, and couldn't kick it. "Fatigue was reported to last an average of over 99 days," she reveals. In July, Dr. Lambert published the ground-breaking Long Hauler Survey, detailing the struggle of long haulers as well as the symptoms they suffer. Fatigue was the most common symptom then as well. 2 You May Feel a "Persistent" Headache A headache is one of the first manifestations of COVID-19, and it is also one of the longest, per Dr. Lambert's latest survey. The long hauler headache is described as "persistent" and sometimes lasts all day and others are episodic. 3 You Might Have Shortness of Breath Shortness of breath, or "difficulty breathing" are also common ailments of long COVID that last for months on end, according to Dr. Lamber's survey pool. This symptom is one of the trademarks of the virus, which attacks the respiratory system. 4 You May Have Brain Fog Another severe symptom that surveyors reported to linger for months after an infection was brain fog. This severe type of cognitive dysfunction makes it difficult for individuals to return to work and function during daily activities. RELATED: 7 Tips You Must Follow to Avoid COVID, Say Doctors 5 You Might Develop a Cough A dry cough is one of the first symptoms that COVID sufferers report—and one of the last to linger, according to Dr. Lambert's survey. 6 How to Survive This Pandemic If you experience any of these symptoms, call a medical professional immediately. And follow Dr. Anthony Fauci's fundamentals and help end this surge, no matter where you live—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
Two major changes from Costco will alter the way you shop this year. All Costco Photo Centers will close for good on Feb. 14 and there's now curbside pickup at several locations in the Southwest, the wholesale grocery chain recently announced.In December, CEO Craig Jelinek said he thinks getting customers to physically shop in the store is still important despite store capacity limitations and other safety measures in place right now because of the coronavirus pandemic. He said that the store's emphasis on its brick and mortar locations is not going away. However, New Mexico members can now try Costco curbside pickup with a $10 fee and a minimum order of $100 through Instacart, but won't be able to refill ink or take passport photos during a trip to the store. (Unsure of what to order? Here are The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now.)Services the Photo Center is known for, like printing, enlargements, greeting cards, canvas prints, photo books, calendars, and blanket, plus business printing products will all still be available to order online and ship to your home at CostcoPhotoCenter.com. The home movie transfer service is also still available on CostcoDVD.com.To use the "easy and convenient" contactless Costco curbside service, customers in Albuquerque can select their groceries on the website and choose same-day delivery and then pickup. All fresh and non-food items are available to order, which is about 2,000 items in total. Customers then receive a text when their order is ready, and there is a one-hour pickup window. A Costco employee will load the car in a designated curbside parking spot.There's no news yet on whether curbside pickup will become available at other locations. But Costco currently offers same-day delivery on perishable groceries like meat, produce, and seafood in some zip codes, also through Instacart. For other non-perishable items, 2-day delivery is available nationwide, except in Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.To get all the latest Costco and other grocery store news delivered right to your email inbox every day, sign up for our newsletter!

Growing up, we never managed to go away with the whole family. My mother, Lesley, would take us to a seaside hotel in Devon or Cornwall with my grandma, and my father, George, would come down at weekends, as he was busy with work. I loved those holidays – the hotels were the sort of places where they had activities for kids – but I probably spoilt things by fighting with my siblings. I was the middle child, standing my ground, and there were five years between me and my older brother, Geoffrey, and younger brother, Roger. When I was about 11, we went to Italy, and then Portugal. Being the middle child, I lucked out, but it was never the three of us boys at the same time. Either Roger was too young, or Geoffrey was off doing his own thing, or it was too expensive for all of us. We did a lot of sightseeing, as Mum liked to shove culture in us, and we’d never stay in one place. We went to Rome, Naples and Pompeii. Neither of my parents were the kind to lie on a beach for two weeks. Italy was my introduction to Mediterranean life. Holidays until then had meant Mivvis, strawberry splits and pasties in cellophane, and suddenly here was someone asking, “Would you like pistachio or dark chocolate ice cream?” I was a bit greedy, and the food seemed to me the ultimate child’s diet – pasta and ice cream! I have this memory of seeing a family, with the balding old chap at the head of the table, kids running in and out of the restaurant and everyone clinking glasses. It was so different, from the way the adults drank wine to the relaxed attitude of the fathers, happily hugging their kids. My dad, who was of Romanian origin, had never been comfortable with the whole English stiff-upper-lip thing, and suddenly I could see other people like him who seemed to be more in their element than he had been in England. I’d look on with envy when I saw these extended families lunching in the sunshine, and it gave me a yearning for that kind of holiday.
Written by Clint Davis for Simplemost and syndicated with permission.Eggs and coffee are perhaps the most important staples of any breakfast—but I never thought to combine them in the same cup.Egg coffee is apparently a tradition in Scandinavian kitchens that dates back centuries. According to The Spruce Eats, immigrants from Sweden brought this unique way to make java with them to America in the late 1800s and their families have kept it brewing here ever since. Apparently, adding an egg to the coffee-making process extracts bitterness from the grounds and enhances the caffeine.I had never heard of egg coffee until one of my editors here at Simplemost pitched it in a story idea, but I was immediately intrigued to try it out. I imagined something akin to egg drop soup, where you simply crack an egg into a pot of coffee, but the process was more nuanced and appetizing than that.You can find several recipes online, including one that involves a French press at Myrecipes.com, but I used the method provided by The Spruce Eats for my test. The only tools it requires are a saucepan and a mesh strainer. To start, you pour 9 cups of water into the saucepan and bring it to a boil. I used filtered water because my tap water tastes like chlorine but it's not a requirement.While the water boiled, the recipe called for me to combine my coffee grounds and egg with another 3/4 cup of water in a measuring cup. I'm sure the coffee snobs reading this will bristle at the fact that I used Folgers Classic Roast for my test, but the only artisanal beans I had in the kitchen were flavored, so this was my best option for something neutral.Every recipe I found online said to use the entire egg, including the shell, in the mixture, so I mixed it all together using a whisk and it ended up looking like thick brownie mix.The whole mixture was then poured into the boiling water, where I simmered it for a few minutes until it all rose to the top in a single mass, as the recipe predicted. I then poured in a little cold water and let it all sit for about 10 minutes.I used my mesh strainer to sift the whole thing into a gallon pitcher. What was left behind was a sludge of coffee grounds and egg shells that could be added to the compost bin to help fertilize your backyard garden.Meanwhile, into the pitcher went a batch of coffee that was slightly more tan in its hue than the typical black coffee that I drink every morning. In the end, the whole process took about 15 minutes from start to finish.The VerdictI poured some of the egg coffee into my favorite Totoro mug and gave it a sip. I usually drink my coffee black, so this was the way I decided to drink my egg coffee and I have to say, I loved what met my tongue.I can't say there was a huge difference in the way it tasted but there was absolutely no hint of the aftertaste that sometimes accompanies a cup of black coffee. It was noticeably smoother and easier to sip than any cup of home-brewed coffee that I can remember having during the pandemic.I immediately drank two cups back to back, a rare thing for me to do, which is a further testament to this pot of egg coffee.If you try to make a batch for yourself, you might find that the people with whom you share breakfast aren't as adventurous. The recipe made an entire pot's worth of coffee, but when I asked my wife—who was watching me in disbelief the entire time I prepared this concoction—if she wanted a cup, she said, succinctly, "I'm not drinking that s—."Her loss!
