I’m 35 years old. Prior to the vaccine I was actively running my own photography business and going to the gym five days per week. I was extremely fit and healthy and never had any health issues whatsoever.
I got the vaccine not because I wanted it, but because I have two nieces and a nephew in Victoria who are my life, and the only way I could see them was to comply with the mandates.
On December 23rd, 2021 I got the Pfizer vaccine. I had no reaction at all until I had my second on January 24th, 2022. Immediately I just started feeling tired. Three days after, I went to bed and my partner woke up to me making strange humming noises. Within minutes I started flinching, and then from zero to one hundred, I went into convulsions and a paralysis like state where I couldn’t move or talk but I could hear everything that was going on.
I thought I was having a stroke, because I had pins and needles throughout my entire body. This turned into being unable to feel my limbs. Everything was numb. It was about fifteen minutes into the seizure when my partner noticed that I was having trouble breathing so she called the ambulance. It took them about fifteen minutes to get to me and I was still having the seizure when they arrived.
When they got to me I was in-and-out of consciousness, my eyes were flickering and rolling in the back of my head. I couldn’t talk or move or breathe properly at only three breaths per minute, but I could hear parts of the conversations around me between the medics and my partner. The paramedics treated me like absolute garbage. They were telling me to wake up and to open my eyes and pushing me in my chest. They gave me oxygen and then told me to get up and walk even though I was still mid-seizure. I was able to get the words out that I’d just had the vaccine, and the paramedic responded by saying “Typical, everyone blaming it on the vaccine”.
On the way to the hospital in the ambulance I regained a little more consciousness. I couldn’t open my eyes, but I was able to communicate that my limbs were still numb. The paramedic next to me told me that I was doing this to myself by starving my brain of oxygen. They wouldn’t acknowledge that I was having a seizure, and persistently made me feel like I was faking it even though I was struggling to stay alive.
When we arrived at the hospital, they wheeled me off the ambulance and left me in a stretcher placed in one of the corridors. The timeline and the events that occurred are all a bit of a blur because of the state I was in, but a doctor came to me. While he was with me, I started having another seizure. My eyes started flickering again and the paralysis came on. I was still able to hear him as he said to me “What are you doing mate? You’re fine and there’s nothing wrong with you. Just wake up”. The nurse next to him said “This is getting awkward. You haven’t said anything for half an hour”. They gave me a bit of oxygen and left me.
It would’ve been around another thirty minutes later when I started coming back to myself. I was still really disorientated, but I was able to kind of move my limbs and get the blood flowing again. They had me strapped down in the stretcher, so I had to ask them to let me go to the toilet. Within half an hour I was feeling okay-ish, they placed me in a chair to be monitored for further thirty minutes before they discharged me.
They discharged me with absolutely nothing, and still to this day I have not been able to get anything from them on paper because there is just nothing there.
I caught an Uber home by myself at 8am. I was exhausted, so all I wanted to do was go to sleep, but as soon as I lay down I went straight into another seizure. It didn’t last long, only three or four minutes, but then I had another one three hours after that. This continued on with me having at least eight more seizures over the next couple of days. Some were quite severe and only two minutes in between (something which is considered an emergency). But because of how I was treated by the medical system, I just couldn’t bring myself to go back to hospital.
I went to my local GP and while there, had a minor seizure in front of him. He said I needed to go and get an MRI and a CT scan right away. He was blown away that the hospital hadn’t done that for me.
I had my MRI and CT scan. They found five cysts on my brain, carbon monoxide poisoning, whitening on the T1 and T2, and due to lack of oxygen and not getting the right treatment, they found I had some brain damage.
Since the results came through, and after many struggles to find someone, I finally got in to see a neurologist who dismissed me for saying the word seizure. I couldn’t get a straight answer, only a diagnosis that literally says, “The patient has funny terms”, and sent me on my way with Valium.
I got into a second neurologist who has since called me back, saying he wants to discuss something seen on the MRI. I’m yet to find out what it is, and this is where I am at currently.
At the moment I’m constantly twitching. I have an IQ of 142, but on a bad day I can’t even string a sentence together. I have short term memory loss, not being able to remember where I put things or what I have said or done ten minutes prior. I’m having seizures every two or three nights, and it could be up to two seizures per night.
The paralysis is getting worse by the day and is localised to the left side of my body, which is the side I received the vaccine on. Lately I have been forgetting how to breathe, a rash resembling welts has appeared all over my back, and I’m experiencing tightness in the chest and heart palpitations. I have poor circulation and yellow skin, I’m eating but I’ve lost 15kg (and all my strength with it). I get exhausted quickly, am fatigued all the time, my anxiety is through the roof and I’m scared to sleep out of fear of dying.
