My name is Brent, I’m 31 years old from Sydney. I’m an electrician who used to love being outdoors whether it was fishing, hiking, working out or being in the water. I loved catching up with friends over food and wine as much as possible. I loved doing everything together with my wife and sadly I can’t do this anymore. Ever since I had my second jab, things have never been the same.

My views on this are probably not the same as most people, but I am heavily against a medical product that was fast tracked. I’m not against vaccinations and previously I’ve had many, including for travelling. With this one, I just wanted more time to see the long-term safety data. I was feeling under a lot of pressure from the government and also from society, to go out and get it. My site would make us fill out paperwork each week to state our jab status, something I thought was intrusive. My employer said they respected my decision but noted that many building contractors may be changing their policies, on allowing people who had not had the jab, to enter their site. This ultimately happened. 

I was listening to podcasts with very smart people at the time, about how amazing and safe these things were and started to question my intuition. So, I made the decision to just get it over with. I got my first jab in late August and had mild chest discomfort, but nothing bad enough to seek advice. I put it down to exercise and having quite physical weeks at work. On September 20th I went to get my second jab. I spoke with the two men at the check-in and the nurse about the chest discomfort I had from the first jab and asked if there was something to worry about. The nurse said that I’ve got nothing to worry about and if I had concerns I should just get the second jab and go to the hospital. 

I feel so stupid now looking back at this grotesque disregard for patient safety, especially when reading the safety guidelines for this particular jab. It says I should have been sent for testing before receiving it. 

Following the second jab, things took a turn for the worse. Within hours I felt a lot pressure in my chest and it felt like somebody was sitting on it. It was really starting to worry me and my wife started to worry too, so she booked me an appointment at her local GP on the following day. They ran an ECG which showed abnormalities and gave me a preliminary diagnosis of pericarditis. I was shocked to say the least, because I’d only heard about myocarditis before getting this. I went home and things became even worse. I started to get intense and heavy palpitations. I felt like my heart was stopping, twitching and essentially struggling. It felt like it was injured. That was the best way I could describe it. I was admitted to hospital where they ran all the tests required and I was admitted with ‘pericarditis secondary to the vaccination’. I was kept in hospital overnight. That was probably the scariest night of my life. I didn’t sleep at all, even after 5mg of diazepam. The pain and pressure was so intense and I thought I was going to die. 

They released me the next afternoon saying I was in no immediate danger. The next week was hell to say the least. I ended up in hospital again a week later with the same symptoms. Sharp pain in my chest, down my arm and up my neck, pressure throughout my entire torso. It hurt to breathe in deeply and I was having very scary palpitations. They did all the scans, blood-work, etc. and told me I was just experiencing the symptoms of pericarditis and it would clear up in a few weeks.

This is where my story gets very hard to deal with. After seven weeks I started to feel a lot better, not fully better, but it was manageable pain, with slight palpitations. My cardiologist cleared me at full capacity for work and exercise, saying I was only going to get stronger. Within a week I landed back at home with pain and palpitations, worse than before.

I was so upset and angry. I then started to seek out stories and guidance online. It turns out you’re not supposed to elevate your heart rate for minimum three months, something my cardiologist said nothing about and actually advocated the opposite! He even took me off colchicine. I then found out, through many people online, it was the wrong thing to do as their cardiologists have all recommended to continue taking it. He wanted to stress test me, which is the opposite of what should be done, according to about 30 other people’s cardiologists. I feel very disappointed in the advice that I received and worry it’s left me permanently damaged. 

I’ve spoken with an immunologist since then. He couldn’t really help me and explained that eventually it should just clear up, but couldn’t actually give me any concrete evidence this would happen. I’ve booked in to see another Cardiologist at the end of January. I hope to get some clearer answers and get back to at least how I was before I returned to work the first time. Then I will have to take it very slow and pray I get back to some sort of normality.

It’s been two and a half months since I’ve slipped back into this cycle of extreme pain and palpitations and four months since this started. I have good days where I’m able to clean the house. But those good days end up being the ones that produce the bad days. I get my heart rate up and pay for it the following days. It’s been just an up and down rollercoaster of emotions and pain. I feel better some days and can see a light at the end of the tunnel, but then it’s ripped away from me, only a day or two later. It’s unbelievably mentally exhausting. 

My wife’s mental health has declined having to watch me in pain most days. I can’t work, I can’t exercise and can no longer go out with my friends. I’m down to the last bit of my savings because the government provides no assistance and am probably going to have to move in with my brother, who lives hours away. My wife will have to quit her job, my brother’s life will be impacted by having to take us in. It makes me so sad to even think what this jab has done, not only to my life, but the lives of those closest to me. 

The reason I’m sharing my story is to hopefully reach people who either have similar symptoms, or are thinking of getting another one. The numbers are scary and the government uses words like ‘transient’ or ‘mild’ and the media and public brush it off as ‘rare’. A healthy male under 40 is at such a high risk of heart issues from this, that I now consider it to be playing Russian roulette. 

I appreciate anyone that has taken the time to read this and I’d like to open my page to anyone who is interested in following me over the course of my healing journey, I will leave more details about what is happening with me there, I feel like I have a long road ahead, so any support is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
