Robackrman, your anecdote about the woman you know who seems "different" after being vaccinated really upsets me, because I have been seeing a lot of cognitive decline in people I know after they have had the shot. I am mainly noticing it in the smartest people; they can't think as they used to (perhaps the less smart people are driveling more, but I've always tried not to listen to them much, so I can't say). By any reasonable standard these intelligent people are okay, but not compared with how they were. They were really, really, really smart before. Now they are just really smart.|
These are people who were far smarter than me (and tolerated my drivel, no doubt). But they are going downhill. I don't want this to be the case; I would rather not be smarter due to their decline. This is not a gift to me. I feel like I am going to be the genius from Idiocracy.
I have always had a horrible memory; just terrible. I do very well on standardized tests and can reason, but I can't remember anything. I have a friend who is 72 y.o. who has an astounding memory. Until now. Yesterday I was able to recall a religious term that he couldn't. He told me, "don't grow old!" I wanted to scream. It's not his age; it is almost certainly the vaccination.
In the case of people who are less smart, what I am seeing is that their facial expressions are different after being vaccinated. They look blander, and slightly fearful. There are also people whom I see on zoom, who don't say much, so I can't tell how well they are mentally. They look terrible, just awful; their faces have aged tremendously.
It is possible that these effects are due to people being infected by covid itself, before or after their vaccination. I can't rule that out. I don't know enough people who haven't been vaccinated to have a comparison group. But even if it turns out that this is due to infection (rather than vaccination), it is clear that the vaccination is not preventing it.
I was hoping I was imagining this, so I am not happy to get confirmation.
