Trouble doing laundry. Anyone else struggling with simple daily tasks?
Does anyone else struggle with doing laundry? I struggle matching things up and overall brain fog. It seems so silly and simple, but it's a challenge for me.

I like his advice of giving yourself permission to recover. Easier said than done, I know.
Yes, even 18 months post COVID I had trouble with simple household tasks. I recently started using a heart rate reduction technique that my occupational therapist taught me. And I am starting to be able to do more each week now. I posted my cardio heart rate reduction (which is also my shortness of breath) on the Facebook group Simple Tools for Recovering Long Haulers. I wonder if the same technique might help you as well?
