First Dose of Pfizer on 08/24/21 Lot #FA6780

Laguna Beach, California

Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?

I ran hills 60-90 minutes a day/6 days a week. I’m a mom of 3, I love family, and love being a friend. I am a professional and basically just someone that loves life and goes around with a smile. I love being involved in my church and community!

Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting vaccinated?

On August 24, 2021, I received my first does of the Pfizer vaccine because I felt personally responsible to my industry. As a Title Rep in the Residential Real Estate Industry in Orange County my job requires daily face to face meetings and numerous interactions with other professionals and the public. I wanted to be able to go about freely knowing everyone was safe and I had done all I could for my part. I believed I was doing the right thing. I felt like I would lose clients or not be able to perform my job. I was afraid I would lose money or my career.

Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

Unfortunately it gave my body the most severe injury and my world came crashing down...Within days I was crippled with Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome, Sciatica brought on by bulging discs from inflammation and within weeks I was 25 pounds heavier, my body was riddled with toxins and inflammation. The pain was excruciating and I could not move. I was instantly disabled.

Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

I am bed ridden. I cannot sit. I struggle to stand, walk. I am completely dependent and in non stop pain every second of every day.

On a daily basis the muscles from my waist down will spasm like a labor contraction, leaving me frozen in pain, constant aching, my skin is numb, but hurts to touch. I have knives and glass shards stabbing my joints, shin bones, calves and thighs. I have allergies I never had before. It may have kicked me into early menopause, I was born with epilepsy and I’m scared it will activate seizures again. If the MIS goes to my brain I could die. I haven’t been able to be with my kids and it is breaking my heart. My family and I are suffering greatly, physically, mentally and emotionally. It’s hard to admit such devastating weakness and the need for help. But I am still suffering and not healed and I know it’s time to lay aside pride, shame, embarrassment, fear, insecurity and humbly ask for help and accept help. SO many of you have already reached out wanting to help me – THANK YOU!

Early on I found the grace to stay positive, smile, laugh, be happy and experience joy; even so, I still cry every day, multiply times a day, I fight despair, depression, hopelessness and feeling overwhelmed. It’s embarrassing and uncomfortable to admit how much more help I need to get the recommended treatments. I’ve been blessed by Sean Rundl @PremiereChiroOC to have my chiropractic care donated until I get well; but I still need to pursue recommended IV Flush treatments, Toxin flush protocols, supplement protocols, possible back surgery, along with deductibles, copays, medications, detox treatments and quite honestly so many little things I need every day that all add up. On top of all this, I need to find a new home conducive to my rehabilitation. Where I live is not set up for someone that can’t walk or move easily.

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

I’ve lived going to M.D.’s, Chiropractic, Pain Specialists, Neurologists, Rheumatologists, Allergists, Immunologists, Wellness Centers, Acupuncture, Physical Therapists, Clinical Massage, Chelation Therapy and Emergency Room. We’ve tried 2 Epidurals, Trigger Point Pain Injections, Non-Stop Copious Amounts of Pain Killers, Cortisol Shots, trying to walk with my walker, Rounds and Rounds of Steroids, Muscle Relaxers, Nerve Pain Inhibitors, CBD, Delta 8, Kratom, Spine Decompression and handfuls of over the counter meds. I now have a specialist who believes the Vax may have reactivated old injuries.

Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?

Pfizer, VAERS. I had to wait for 6 months

Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?

The treatments we’ve tried so far aren’t healing me. If we cannot get the inflammation under control and the discs back in place, I will be facing back surgery. I need to continue physical therapy to learn how to get my muscles working again, and pursue wellness options to flush toxins out of my body that are inhibiting healing. To help my healing process, I have switched to a high Alkaline diet to reduce inflammatory foods and beverages. I avoid nightshade vegetables and take massive amounts of supplements including colloidal silver, pine needle tincture, Kratom, B Vitamins, Turmeric, D3, zinc, Ivermectin and on and on. There are more options out there to help me such as IVIG, Red Light Sauna, Red Light Therapy, and many recommended doctors with protocols that could help me.

Warmth helps. So does the Chiropractor and taking Kratom. This helps pain. But no, my symptoms haven't improved. I am worse.

Q: Have you had Covid before? What was your experience if so?


Q: What do you wish others knew?

This is happening to very healthy physically fit people. This can happen to anyone.

As I write this, it is DAY 164 , and I am still fighting strong!... But no where near out of the woods. Despite my circumstance I feel good in my heart and mind. I have hope. I’m starting to tell my story on IG, FB, Tik-Tok and Podcasts. I can’t believe the outpouring of love, encouragement, compassion and concern I’ve received. I can’t tell you how good it feels to have the love of my family and friends engulf me at the darkest hour I’ve ever experienced. It has given me strength beyond my imagination.

It truly does take a village; and this is the time for me to accept help from my village. Thank you for your kindness, support, love, fierce advocation, encouragement and help. Thank you that you want to help me find the answers I so desperately need…and I HOPE I can turn around and help others get well too! We are all in this together; and I am so grateful for each and every one of you!!!
