Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
Wonderful. Completely healthy, active. I felt better than I had in my whole life.
Q: Would you like to share your reason(s) for getting the vaccine?
I was extremely hesitant to get it, because of the rush implementation and lack of data regarding testing and efficacy.
When the Federal mandates were announced, and companies were allowed to require vaccination to retain employment, coupled with the extreme pressure I felt to keep my son and my mother safe, as they have severe medical issues, I went ahead. I got the doses in May/June of 2021.
Q: Have you had Covid before?
Yes. Even after I took the vaccine - I still got Covid, because it was not even effective.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
I have been battling every day with debilitating side effects after receiving the Moderna vaccine.
Almost immediately following, I noticed I was losing my vision. I had to undergo many tests by multiple hospitals and facilities. I was referred to numerous specialists. I underwent numerous MRI's, spinal taps, blood testing, brain scans, angiograms and more. During these tests, I discovered I have deteriorating vision loss and now have to receive injections every four weeks. I have swelling in my brain. I have vascular leaking and swelling. I have bilateral hearing loss, which has diminished hearing in both ears. There are many other minor issues that I will not waste time mentioning, as I try to focus on fighting to keep my vision, hearing, and brain stable. My brain swelling is the most frightening, as there is no way to monitor that personally on a day-to-day basis. The constant headaches are difficult to manage.
I have to take at least 15 pills a day, just to attempt to keep things stable. I have to take more when I have flare-ups and have to fight to get things back under control. The vision in my right eye, which was my dominant eye, has almost been completely lost on multiple occasions. Thankfully my Retinologist has been able to fight the deterioration off as long as he has.
There is no help for people in my situation. There is no relief. There are no treatment options being provided. Many doctors I have spoken with do not know what to do with the reactions they are seeing.
My medical bills from May 2021 through December 05, 2022, totaled $83,289.58 (redacted photo attached for verification). That does not even include injections, surgery, follow-up appointments and prescriptions that I have yet to have this month and will continue to have going forward. I regularly travel to seven medical facilities in two states for these appointments, so the time off work and the travel expenses also add up quickly and tremendously.
If you have made it this far now, I can explain why I have created this. An attorney in the Washington DC area contacted me this morning and offered his services to take me as a client for $2,500 to expedite my counterclaims injury compensation claim and fight the impending rejection by the government. Most people do not know that you must file within a year of the countermeasure (shot), or you are entirely out of luck. I was proactive enough with my research to at least cover myself that way.
Once that claim can get approved or even responded to, only THEN can I move on to explore other remedies. The PATH Act states you must exhaust all administrative remedies first, so I genuinely need to gather these funds even to have a shot at future remedies or help.
If you would like to contribute to my cause, to this cause in general, to help establish some path or precedent for the many others who have died or are injured and lost, I would appreciate it. Even a prayer or good vibe is appreciated.
Any funds will be used for the legal fee requested. If I cannot raise the amount needed, the monies will all go towards the ongoing medical expenses.
