COVID 19: Some people have developed psychiatric symptoms after experiencing COVID 19 (especially those who have been in ICU or on ventilators). Far more people have been emotionally impacted by the COVID 19 pandemic in general and the lifestyle changes & health concerns it has imparted. Consider a psychological assessment to better understand and deal with this.

Post COVID: In addition to Dr. Fowler's excellent response, pelase keep in mind the fact that COVID can produce neurological symptoms that we don't have much research on yet. I just read an article that said many of these clear up in a few months but please do see your doctor or a neuropsychologist and work against the OCD, which feeds on concerns like this. Peace and good health.
