This is my story. I hope this helps someone to make an informed decision. I never intended to get the COVID vaccine but did because of relocation. I am currently living in Victoria and was planning to move back home to Darwin in September.
Twelve hours before my flight, my area became a hotspot and Northern Territory closed borders. Then Northern Territory stated that as of November, if coming from a red or orange zone that unvaccinated people would be banned.
So on the 1st October I had the first Moderna vaccination. I have done some seriously stupid things in my life, but this decision tops them all.
On days one and two I had fevers, chills, shaking and teeth chattering, but I was okay because I expected some sort of immune response.
On day three I felt better. Day four I woke up and knew something was very wrong. I was lying in bed and felt like I had been hit by a truck. I walked to the kitchen and my heart was pounding and I was out of breath. Within a few hours I had intense chest and heart pain. It felt like someone sitting on my chest squeezing my heart and ribcage.
I called nurses online and they phoned an ambulance. They started treating me for a heart attack and were giving me too many drugs which were making me black out and vomit.
Once at the hospital I had blood tests, ECGs and an X-ray. The doctor said that the vaccine had affected the muscles through my chest and to see my GP if the issue continued.
Once home during the first week I thought I was going to die. I was fainting every day. The extreme chest and heart pain continued and my heart felt swollen. I would wake during the night like my lungs were on fire. Many times I wanted to call an ambulance. I was so weak, beyond fatigued and out of breath.
In the following weeks the muscle and joint pain everywhere started, hands, feet, eyes, spleen, and stomach. I had nausea, affected vision, headaches, brain-fog, and I had loss of feeling in the left side of my face and left side of my body at times. It hurt to walk and use my hands. I couldn’t raise my arms to hang washing on the clothesline because of sore ribs.
In week five the fevers and chills came back for a week and my neck and glands started to swell. I did a 36-hour zero calorie electrolyte fast which helped somewhat at the time. I am taking 20 different supplements every day to detox. I saw my GP and she won’t give me an exemption. She says my chest pain is anxiety.
I am a naturopath, so I requested a whole heap of blood tests and they are showing several abnormalities which indicate an autoimmune condition, so my body is now attacking itself. The doctor has referred me to a rheumatologist next year in March.
On week eight I got up and felt fine, did some stuff on the computer, then started having severe stabbing pains in my heart. Pain that felt different from the ongoing pressure across my chest. I went to get up and collapsed, I was blacking out. I managed to grab my phone and called an ambulance. I was tested for troponin, had a d-Dimer, ECG and X-ray. All results were normal. I am on a waiting list to have a heart ultrasound.
On week nine I got up and was walking into the lounge room when I looked down at my legs and they were considerably swollen. I literally started to freak out and faint. This time I called a friend to take me to the hospital. Again, all my tests were normal. And again, the nurse said it may be anxiety or an underlying issue. She also mentioned that I needed to get the second vaccination.
The doctor said that the swelling could be related to the autoimmune problem. Importantly, while I was in there for the day, the guy on my left was admitted for chest pain after the vaccination and the woman on my right was also admitted for chest pain after the vaccination.
I have not worked this whole time. I still can’t travel because of the risk of clotting or a heart attack in the plane. I struggle every day. This morning I walked my dog on the beach and I walked into the water up to my knees, within a few minutes my body was going into shock from the cold water.
There is something profoundly wrong with what is going on here and globally.
I understand that if someone were to catch VociD-19 it is unknown how severely they would be affected. But this dangerous alternative that the government is pushing is not the answer nor a safe solution. Most importantly it should never have been mandated, but should have been a choice.
