Anyone else notice people saying their memory has been bad?

My wife and I were over our friend's house the other day and they were all saying that they feel like this past year their memory has gotten worse and are having a hard time remembering things at times.
I also feel like I've heard a bunch of other people say this as well.
What's weird is that I don't feel the same. My memory seems to be the same as it was before "Covid times".
I wonder if this is because I've worked from home for over 6 years now and other people aren't used to not having their day broken up with commutes and such? Or, and I hope not, it's a lasting side effect of a possible past Covid infection that may have been either asymptomatic or very light.
Wife has "pregnancy brain" that she's recovering from (baby #2 is here!).
I won't say it's not a side effect of covid, but I will posit that it's an effect of the new routine. Remember back in school where a month used to take forever, but now it's gone in a flash? In school, you'd have constan... more

When my wife was pregnant, she was craving anything sugar. The only problem was that she got really bad gestational diabetes and was taking a ton of insulin shots (first time ever in her life) just to keep the numbers down.
So of course, the one thing she was craving the doctors said she couldn'... more
all been negative, so we haven't had to do anything (and haven't had to retest) with these two pregnancies. I wonder if there's something sugar-like that would have satisfied her cravings without being sugar?
She still drinks diet soda even after the fact. Probably just as bad for you with all the artificial stuff but at least it didn't have sugar in it.
Glad you guys didn't have to go through that. It was a nightmare for her. She had to finger test multiple times a day and use the insulin pens I thi... more
