As an aged care worker of 30 years, the COVID vaccine became a pre-requisite of the job. This also included the hepatitis, tetanus, and flu vaccines. When aged care workers were mandated to have the COVID vaccination by the Prime Minister and consent was requested, this set the alarm bells off for me immediately. I researched but couldn’t find information about this new vaccine and went to my GP for advice as I had suffered adverse reactions to the flu vaccine and have several other allergies which have been lifelong.
My GP dismissed any concerns and told me they were irrelevant and not important and the best he could do was vaccinate me. This was a concern, so I found a new GP who was less dismissive but who gave me the same advice. My workplace asked every day about my vaccination status and despite making several appointments to have the vaccine, I cancelled all of them. The coercion and intimidation were constant and overwhelming. I did not meet the time frame to have had the first COVID vaccine and was not allowed to enter my workplace.
As my job was the only reliable source of income I finally succumbed and had my first Pfizer vaccine on the 21 September 2021 at 6pm. It was one hour later when I felt a build-up of pressure in my head, no pain though, and tingling and cramps throughout my body. All I could do was lay down and sleep. I told my husband to check my breathing and I was out for several hours. When I woke the pressure had eased but my head was foggy and felt like I was drunk or on something. The cramps and tingling continued for several hours but the next morning I felt a little better.
Day 3: I was okay in the morning but by afternoon things turned bad. I had heart palpitations, my blood pressure was 174/144, I had tingling and brain fog and my right arm started jerking uncontrollably. The ambulance was called and I was taken to hospital. I was given anticonvulsant to stop tremors as they had been going for five hours, and this gave some relief. Testing began; pathology, heart, CT scan, MRI, and other tests, with everything coming back normal except for the MRI. They found a mass in the meninges, the protective layer between skull and brain and a white mass on both sides of my brain. They assumed it was a small tumour but were not definite that the seizures were caused by this as I had right arm seizures and the mass was also on my right side, which is inconsistent. I was kept in and monitored overnight and sent home next the day with nothing, except advice to follow up with my GP.
Two days later I was back in hospital, monitored, given Valium and a referral to a neurologist and a neurosurgeon, prescribed Keppra for seizures and sent home. The anticonvulsant’s side effects were atrocious. I felt suicidal and unable to function at all. The visit to the neurologist resulted in a diagnosis of mental health issues, no neurological problems and no further follow up required and I was advised to see a neurosurgeon within 12 months.
My treating GP had a meltdown and screamed at me when I questioned why doctors were dismissing my symptoms, ruling everything out but not addressing the symptoms which were obvious since my arm jerking around uncontrollably. I walked out of his room traumatised, and two days later went back because I wasn’t going to take this lying down. Something was very wrong here. It was only when I requested a service that they provided it. I was referred to another GP and this is where I found out that my injuries were vaccine related. I have a brain trauma from build-up of pressure, and there is definitely neurological damage. My new GP explained the results of my tests and exactly what is going on in the medical fraternity.
My injuries are constant, but some days are worse than others, the right arm seizures have become more aggressive but not as frequent, the brain fog is either bad or not all. The brain fog and neck pain are the first indicators of a bad episode which usually happens within a few minutes of pain.
My whole body feels as if every injury I’ve ever had is now back with a vengeance, and where prior to the vaccine I took no regular medication, I now am needing regular pain relief.
I can no longer safely drive, no longer work and life is very different for me now. I’ve learned how to deal with my seizures when they happen, but it doesn’t get any less scary. I experience new symptoms often, but they clear away and then come back. However, the more serious ones are everyday occurrences that are mild to full on, can last minutes or hours or all day.
I’m on a wait list to see the neurosurgeon but am now afraid to be anywhere near medicos let alone under their care, and will probably be lied to again anyway. I’m using CBD oil to help with the seizures, as the prescribed medication with such horrendous side effects and which was inappropriate for my condition, leaves me no other choice. I placed myself under the care of a psychologist because I now do have issues with my mental and emotional health.
These vaccines are poison. It was never about health and the fact that so many of us now live with injuries show these are crimes against humanity. The statistics of injuries needs to be exposed to the world and this is why I share my story.
