I am 41 years old, a husband, and father of two young children. Prior to the vaccine I was working hard and doing double shifts. I enjoyed fishing, working, and spending time with my family. I was very active and rarely sat still. I had a full blood analysis taken days before getting the vaccine which showed that I was very healthy and had no issues (except a slight elevation of cholesterol).
I watched from the start of the crisis and knew mandates would be implemented. My wife has a history in the health industry and is clinically minded. When the mandates came in, she sent comprehensive information to my employer as a warning against mandating vaccines for work. My employer then said that they would work around it. The mandates then came in state-wide, and I was told I must get the jab so I stopped working for five weeks to avoid getting it.
I did not want to get it at all and stayed off work for as long as I could. I wasn’t the only one – many in my team said ‘no’ and eight employees were stood down. I am the provider for my family and couldn’t stay off work any longer. I resigned myself to getting the Novavax jab when it arrived. I still didn’t want it at all but thought it might at least be the better vaccine option, as it was supposedly the type that we have all had before, a known science and hopefully the lesser evil.
On 21 February 2022 I had the Novavax jab (left arm). I had no symptoms on the first day, and none for the following three weeks. I had to get the second jab three weeks later and went in for my second Novavax shot on 14 March 2022. That morning my three-year-old daughter put her hand on me and said “Daddy I’m so sorry you have to get the needle.” This is when things changed for the worse.
Straight after the jab, I had a dead arm. I could feel a nodule under the skin where it went in. I went home and lay down for an hour as I felt tired. Three hours later I went outside and then came back inside holding my chest. I had huge pressure in my chest and couldn’t catch my breath. My wife did a manual blood pressure check and spoke to my doctor. At first, I put it down to anxiety as we had had a lot of friends injured after getting their vaccines and I thought maybe I was worried something bad was happening to me. I decided to go and rest again, and I slept right through dinner.
My wife was monitoring me and when I woke up, she said that I looked like I was in a state of shock. I was crying and in a confused state. I felt terrified. I was having night terrors about having to frantically fill barrels quickly, or that clowns were going to hurt our girls. I and others in the dream were being forced to do as the clowns said for fear of injury or death to our families. I was trapped and couldn’t get out of the night terror – it was so vivid and real that I woke up traumatised from the nightmare. I was so thirsty; I went to get a drink but I couldn’t pick up the cup. I became unsteady as my hands weren’t working so I went back to bed and slept until midday the next day. My wife was crying and so upset seeing me in this state. She works in aged care, and she said it was like watching someone with dementia.
When I woke up, I was talking about the night terrors again as I was so disturbed by them. We know three people who had the same Novavax batch and experienced the same night terrors. Over the next few days, I kept resting as I had no energy. I was out cold and not able to be roused. I was also still experiencing chest pain, my blood pressure continued to increase, I had migraines, shortness of breath, disorientation, and burning in my arm.
Three days later, on 17 March, my wife called my doctor as I was in severe discomfort. I went in and saw the doctor who confirmed that my blood pressure was elevated noticeably higher than normal (but not too high for him to be too concerned). The doctor advised me to rest, not to panic and for my wife to keep monitoring me and to come back in a few days if my symptoms persisted.
The next day, I phoned the medical centre as my pain was even worse and my blood pressure was rising. I went in and the nurse triaged me and did my blood pressure (because the doctor was busy and had been bombarded with illness from the vaccines). She was concerned that I might have myocarditis. She said that they were seeing so many of these injuries from the vaccines and that it was common in males. I was then sent straight to the doctor who checked my blood pressure which was high, and he prescribed medication for suspected myocarditis (Ramipril 1.25mg) to ‘protect from any further heart damage, prevent strokes and to prevent renal damage’. He asked me to return in a week.
Four days later I returned to the doctor as I was still in pain and having symptoms. My blood pressure was 143/91 P 82 on rising. My wife demanded a full blood analysis, but the doctor refused and said he “wasn’t allowed”. Over the following days I continued to have chest pains, severe fatigue, shortness of breath, and irritability.
On 2 April 2022 I went to emergency with chest pains and headaches, all of which had been occurring regularly since the second jab two weeks prior. We saw lots of people in emergency who were experiencing chest pains, shaking, tremors, and hives. I felt partially heard by my doctor, but I knew that he was gagged and could only say so much for fear of repercussions. I am angry because there is a knowing, but no one is saying anything beyond those walls. Even in the hospital, the nurses, GPs, and emergency staff all said they suspected I had myocarditis. I have been diagnosed with hypertension and a ‘suspected vaccine adverse reaction’. I have had a stress ECHO test and endo cardiogram test and they all came back as clear. Why do they come back clear if I am injured? None of the health staff offered to report my injury to the TGA, but my wife has documented everything and has reported it for me. We know several people in our circle who have had the same vaccine batch and five others that we know had adverse reactions too.
Currently I have weekly GP check-ins, my blood pressure is steadily coming down, and I feel a bit better. I have been working reduced hours when I can, and I must take many days off as I’m still not fully up to it. I am adamant that my wife and kids will never receive this poison. I still have a heavy chest, breathlessness, and migraines. I can’t even walk without trying to catch my breath. Everything has changed. I am always tired, I sleep more, I am agitated, my patience for my family is reduced, I am on edge and very irritable. This upsets me as I love my family so much. I am no longer myself and I feel like I have been violated.
I wanted to share my story as I have been reading the injury stories of others and hearing them in my circle of friends and I want to bring more awareness. These are not crazy people. They are being censored, dismissed, ignored, and misrepresented by industries and Big Tech platforms. My message is – don’t get it. I wish I could take it out of my body.
