Jacqui C

image000000.jpg

My name is Jacqui and I am a 54-year-old woman with two sons.
I have previously been diagnosed with autism and ADHD as well as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, an inherited disorder that affects my connective tissue. Despite this, I led a very full, active, and happy life as my conditions were well managed.
I loved horse riding and also did a lot of cross-stitch work. I have been working as a bookkeeper for a single client in a role that I found very fulfilling, and my two sons also keep me busy.

In June 2021 I suffered a bad fall from my horse, fracturing 12 ribs and two vertebrae, in addition to getting two lung punctures. This accident left me with only 75% lung capacity.
I spent five weeks in hospital, but by the time I was discharged on 3 July, I was feeling so much better and was looking forward to resuming my life as I had before.

I was not particularly keen to get the vaccine, but based on my existing medical conditions, recent injuries from my horse accident, and overall peer pressure, I felt that I would be “doing the right thing” if I went ahead with it. When my oldest son got his first vaccination he ended up having a major seizure immediately afterwards, something which left him feeling angry and betrayed. Despite this signal, on 8 August 2021 at 11.30 a.m. I lined up for my first Pfizer vaccination……

Immediately after the first vaccination I felt fine, but I woke at 4 a.m. that night with so much pain in my arm that I was unable to sleep for the rest of the night.
From that point on, I just became sicker and sicker. I felt like I had a bad case of flu or COVID, but all my tests were negative. I suffered acute dizziness, extreme fatigue, terrible sweating, brain fog, body aches, heart palpitations, vomiting and shortness of breath. I also developed huge blisters on my left foot and leg which no doctor was able to explain.
I could barely manage the basics in self-care and was struggling to get through every day. I did my best to keep up a normal life but it was extremely difficult and I do not think I was very successful in that goal.

Despite my deteriorating condition, I lined up for my second vaccination on 1 September 2021. This time I did not get the arm pain like I did last time, but the debilitating symptoms continued and in fact, got worse. I spent a week in bed unable to do anything at all. The only thing I forced myself to do, was to go and feed my horse, as that was critical. But the effort to do so absolutely wiped me out.

On the first of September 2021 I woke during the night to go to the toilet and as I walked through the house, I felt myself lose consciousness. I fell, straight-legged, flat down and hit my forehead on the wall causing concussion and a massive gash which later required stitches and plastic surgery. My son found me unconscious on the floor in a pool of blood and he called an ambulance.
The ambulance staff were terrific and they 100% believed me when I told them that I had lost consciousness as a result of my bad reaction to the Pfizer vaccine.
I spent one night and a day and a half in hospital receiving treatment for this injury.

In January 2022 I visited the specialist who has treated me for many years for my autism, ADHD, and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. He diagnosed me with high blood pressure which I had never had before. He was, however, unable to provide any advice on the other debilitating symptoms that I had been experiencing.

In February 2022, I saw a local GP. He was smarmy and condescending in his manner, and effectively gas-lit me for the entire consultation. In the end however, he did make a verbal statement to the effect that I had suffered a severe and unusual reaction to the Pfizer vaccine.

Then, also in February 2022, I saw a local family GP who suggested that I try the Long COVID clinic for assistance. This was in spite of the fact that I never even had COVID. He prescribed Micardis for my ongoing high blood pressure.

I attended the Long COVID clinic which was pretty much useless. They suggested a program of exercises in two-hour blocks, but said that my GP would have to sign off on the program due to my high blood pressure. Of course, my GP completely nixed that idea as the blood pressure issue was a show-stopper.

On 2 June 2022 I contracted a bad case of COVID. I was extremely ill for a full seven days. However, as all my other symptoms were still ongoing, all this did was add a lot of sneezing and a great deal of nasal mucus to the existing situation. In short, I was abjectly miserable!

In May 2023 I started attending a medical co-op where, for a small one-off annual fee, I could see a doctor any time for no charge. The first doctor I saw made me cry with distress as she was so cavalier about my symptoms and past medical issues, and said she doubted that I would ever be eligible for a disability support pension. The only positive about that visit was that she physically documented my vaccine injury. Via Medico-Legal, I have managed to get a copy of that document for my own records. The doctor has since left the practice.
I later saw another doctor at the co-op who was lovely. He thought that I might be eligible for a disability support pension after all. He has since left the practice also. The third doctor I saw has as yet, taken no action to help.

In February 2024 I saw a cardiologist. He did an ECG and said that my heart was okay but suggested possible dysautonomia or POTS as possible answers. He would not however, commit to either diagnosis as he believes that they are “too contentious”, whatever the heck that means….

I am fortunate in one way that my job allows me to mostly work from home and there is not too much pressure on me to produce high outputs. That has afforded me what I call a “soft landing”
Having said that though, I was forced to sell my house and instead purchase a small unit due to my reduced income.

Since my first vaccination in August 2021, my symptoms have pretty much continued unabated. I have enormous difficulty getting out of bed every day and spend most of my time doing absolutely nothing, as that is all I am capable of. I still suffer brain fog, dizziness, heart palpitations, high blood pressure, fatigue, terrible sweating, and shortness of breath.
I am able to work from home at a reduced pace and get out to feed my horse, but that is all. I can no longer ride my horse or do my cross-stitch, and I feel as though I am living half a life at best.

In summary, whilst I did have existing medical issues, I was definitely getting better until my first Pfizer dose. The gaslighting I received from friends, family and medical professionals was unforgivable. The “severe and unusual reaction to Pfizer” changed my life forever.
I will never give up telling my story, despite a lack of interest from many. My life will never be the same, which is a massive shame.
I was always pro-vax, but not now. I feel so guilty for encouraging my children to take the Pfizer vaccine.
If someone tells you they have post-vaccine symptoms, please believe them!
