It has been a hugely gratifying and humbling experience to get the chance to set up the Longcovid Service for Berkshire and work with a great team from primary and community care. It has been 7 months now and we are still learning everyday about the condition of Longcovid and how it seems to affeect multiple systems. Right now we continue to offer them support, a listening ear, appropriate testing and treatments where available in a trauma informed manner.
In this episode, I speak to Dr Sabina Brennan. a clinical psychologist, neuroscientist, fellow podcaster and best selling author of the book on how to beat Brain Fog.
As we know, Brain fog and congitive dysfunction is one of the most common sysmptoms noted in Longcovid. Treatments are still emerging and I thought it would be a fascianting and hugely useful idea to hear it from a researcher and scientist and someone with lived exeperience herself on how to overcome this.
This is a cracking epsidoe and in fact I had to break it up into 2 epsidodes. I hope you enjoy the show.
