Do you have COVID brain?
But now, patients who have never had COVID are experiencing the same symptoms. Dr. Arthur Bregman, a psychiatrist at Bregman Medical Group, said many of his patients who have never had COVID are experiencing what he has coined COVID psych brain. With COVID causing everyone’s anxiety levels to be elevated, “People’s cognitive function are disconnected and they’re foggy,” Bregman said. Marco works with his therapist on his COVID psych brain and is feeling much better now. Bregman said people who already have other mental conditions, such as anxiety or depression are more prone to COVID psych brain.

2 tropical storms heading for double blow to US Gulf Coast
Two tropical storms advanced across the Caribbean on Saturday as potentially historic threats to the U.S. Gulf Coast, one dumping rain on Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Hispaniola while the other swept into the gulf through the gap between Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and Cuba. Tropical Storms Laura and Marco were both projected to approach Louisiana's coast at or close to hurricane force just two days apart in the next several days. The last time two tropical storms were in the Gulf together was in 1959, he said. But large uncertainties remained for that time span, and forecasts have varied greatly so far for the two storms. ___Associated Press writer Dánica Coto reported this story in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and AP writer Seth Borenstein reported from Kensington, Md.
Laura and Marco building in the tropics - Hurricane material???
2020 - The year of impossibilitiesIncluding the current hurricane season, where we have had 11 named storms, 2 hurricanes. The current seasonal estimate by Colorado State is for 25 named storms, thats 14 more! Worse, is that they are still expecting 4-6 major hurricanes. The season is likely to be one of the most active and possibly severe/damaging we have seen since 2017 with Irma, Maria and Harvey. Those three major hurricanes caused a combined $300 Billion in damage and thousands of deaths (both directly and indirectly).
