First Dose of Moderna in 03/21 Lot #020B21A
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
I was an artist and had a home business doing soap and bath products. I enjoyed fishing, mycology, entomology and fossil hunting as hobbies in my free time. A mom of an 8 year old, and an infant with chronic kidney disease.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
My symptoms are too extensive to list but initially started with a blistering rash and sunburn like reaction on the injection arm. Within two hours my muscles, especially in my neck, became rigid and stiff, with the worst headache and dizziness of my life. I experienced tachycardia which i am still dealing with, and embarrassing speech problems and clumsiness. In the following weeks, I lost feeling in half my body. I went on to be diagnosed with first onset Multiple Sclerosis.
Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?
I rarely leave. I can no longer run my home business. My days consist of logging symptoms, feeling unwell, and going to the doctor.. a LOT. My S/O now has to take off work regularly to help take care of me and our children. Mobility is difficult. I have to wear diapers from time to time due to numbness and muscle problems from MS that have caused incontinence. Some days it is hard to walk. My life is nothing like it was before.
Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:
I was not taken seriously in the beginning because when I asked when my symptoms started, upon mentioning the vaccine, I was treated as less than human, almost as if i was out of my mind. I wasn't crazy, and my symptoms were a direct relation to brain damage. I was diagnosed with first onset Multiple Sclerosis.
Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?
Yes. They reached out to speak with my doctors and I never heard back.
Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?
My symptoms are a roller coaster. Some days they are only uncomfortable and other days they are completely unmanageable. The only thing that has helped was prednisone. I am waiting on shots that I will have to give myself 3 times a week that cost over $6,000 a month. I hope they help, this is no way to live.
Q: What do you wish others knew?
Informed consent is not being provided. The safety and efficacy of this vaccine is a total lie. If you get sick from it, you're on your own. Doctors won't take you seriously. You will lose friends and family because what the news portrays is more important than their relationship with you. A large number of people are too concerned about what society thinks to treat you like a human. They will take your health and make it into an opinion and, in doing so, use it as a way to attack and belittle you.
