Yeah, I know him. DarkSektur, right? He was one of the first people I saw who reported struggling with debilitating mental symptoms, like inability to find words and inability to read a book without having to re-read the lines over and over again to get some sense of progression. The fact that it took him so long was very depressing to me at first, but I read other people's accounts and realized that everyone is a little bit different when it comes to recovery. For example, I suffer all of the crippling cognitive complaints, depression, numbness and social anxiety, but I don't suffer panic attacks or PIED (which feels like a curse rather than a blessing). Another user, areborn27, suffered for 14 months, and he had pressure/tingling in his head on top of that. Also, DarkSektur said that he went to bed one night feeling 100% shitty, and then woke up the next morning feeling 99% healed, which doesn't sound like areborn27's experience, in which his symptoms melted away over two months after around a year of struggling. And Big Lebowski, while reporting to have healed a lot, is still experiencing some symptoms after two years (I think?). So, our stories vary quite a bit. The main thing we seem to have in common is that it takes time. A lot of time. We don't have all the time in the world, guys. We can't keep wasting days, months, years on reboots. We have to embrace all the discomfort that comes with denying ourselves instant "pleasure" and do what we can to prevent this mind-numbing disease from spreading, because this shit right here? This is the bottom of the fucking barrel, the darkest corner of the human experiment. And it can all crumble in a matter of seconds because you decide that your hand feels better than living life to its fullest. Always be vigilant. And ALWAYS deny urges, because even if they come back, they come back weaker.
