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

I am a single mother of two boys. I led a pretty normal life before getting the Moderna. I was able to work fulltime and enjoyed spending time with my active sons. I did have Diabetes prior to the vaccine, and have always seen my PCP regularly for check ups. I like to stay on top of my health.

Q: Would you like to share your reason(s) for getting the vaccine?

I got the vaccine in the first 100 days and I was all for it. I had no idea that it would be such a detriment to my health and finances.

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

I got the Moderna shot (against my better judgement) on March 24th, 2021. I had a severe and immediate allergic reaction and broke out in hives over 70% of my body for several weeks. My eyes were swollen shut for 6 days. I developed vision changes and tinnitus. I had new onset of uncontrolled high blood pressure and was diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome from the vaccine since it is attacking my nervous and respiratory system. I had to wear a heart monitor as my heart was affected. I now take a heart medication and see a cardiologist as well. I have tingling, twitching and extreme burning in my body all over and in my brain, intermittently. I have fatigue, headaches and joint pain. I haven't worked a full work week in quite some time and I spent 90% of my weekends in bed and have for almost 2 years.

The initial allergy symptoms from it (swollen, watery eyes, runny nose, sore throat, etc.) did not subside despite many medicines and after 6 weeks of it, I developed bronchitis and sinusitis from it. I was put on a round of antibiotics in May that did nothing. I finished a second round of antibiotics and also 2 weeks of Prednisone steroids and breathing treatments to try to combat this aggressive allergic reaction. After many-many months, I can finally breathe okay and my head is clearing up. Praise Jesus for this healing.

I have been to many doctors several times in the past two years, and have missed a lot of work. I have paid many co-pays and purchased many over the counter and prescription medications and I am at a loss when it comes to some of my bills. I was already struggling due to the pandemic in general as it has affected my income greatly. I am back to work full time, praise Jesus. I have been to several pantries over the past two years and was able to get by with food for the boys and through churches, etc.

I have prayed about this and God said He will provide and heal. I am a single mom with very little family and I don't have any other resources I can tap into. All of them are exhausted. Please pray for me. I have become depressed over this. I have been so isolated.

I am desperate for healing. This has been a very humbling experience for me. I got one shot and two years later, I still have tingling, twitching and extreme burning in my body all over; and in my brain, intermittently.

Thanks for your time and for reading through all of this. God bless.

Q: Where has your reaction been reported, and what was the response?

I have reported my experience to Moderna and VAERS.
