The Impacts of Long COVID on Identity and Wellbeing

Welcome to our online discussion forum on the topic of “I am just a shadow of who I used to be—Exploring existential loss of identity among people living with chronic conditions of Long COVID.”

Our research team has recently published a paper on the subject of how the experience of long-COVID impacts on people’s sense of self and identity. You can find the full paper here - link.

We invite anyone who is affected by Long COVID to share their stories, experiences, and thoughts on the profound loss of identity that sometimes accompanies the condition. Additionally, you are encouraged to ask the authors any questions you may have about their paper.

Please be aware that this is a public forum, and any personally identifiable information should not be shared. The conversation will be moderated by members of the research team and information shared may be used in future research
