Hi.

> Has anyone who has caught the wretched virus felt that it caused a worsening of or relapse of mood issues?

Depression and anxiety are common outcomes of COVID-19.

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=covid+covid-19+depression+anxiety&format=abstract&size=50

However, there is also the "long hauler" / "long COVID syndrome to take into consideration. I think brain fog is the most common manifestation. A recently discovered treatment for long haulers is a combination of two antivirals - nirmatrelvir-ritonavir. It has been reported that paxlovid is also effective for long COVID-19.

I would recommend comparing the "flavors" of the two conditions - your "traditional" depression versus your long COVID-19 symptoms with regard to mood, energy, and brain-fog. If you can identify a difference in how you experience your old depression versus your present condition, I think it makes sense to treat you as if you had long COVID.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
