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

I had just returned back to work from my maternity leave. I was a busy mom to a 1 year old and 3 year old. I was active, loved to garden, cook and spend time with family.

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

A couple weeks after my second shot, which was Moderna, I started to notice some proprioception issues with going down the stairs. I had to look at each step before stepping, or I would feel like I was going to fall. I ignored the symptom and thought it was just in my head. Then on August 9, 2021, I went swimming, put the kids to bed, had a shower and then noticed that my feet had pins and needles. Over the next hour the pins went all the way up to my stomach. I had bad back pain and tried stretching but was starting to feel weak in my right leg. I asked my husband to help me to the washroom, but I could not pee. That’s when we knew something was very wrong. Within 4 hours, I was paralyzed from the waist down with a neurogenic bladder and bowel. I had 5 MRIs, 3 CTs, a spinal tap, spinal arteriogram, enough blood work to test me for every autoimmune disease and everything came back negative. What did show was an extensive lesion from T6-T10 on my spinal cord. I had 5 days of high dose steroids and then 7 treatments of plasmapheresis exchange. This was over the course of 6 weeks in the hospital. I then went to 6 weeks of neuro rehab to try to relearn how to walk. I am so thankful that the PLEX and many prayers brought me to where I am today. I can walk, though still struggle with my gait, tone and neuropathy. I go to physio weekly, and exercise to strengthen daily. I still cannot work as my job requires me to be fully mobile. I tire easily but am working on my endurance. I have to keep up with my busy family. I still have a long road ahead, but I feel like I’ve already run a lot of my marathon.

Most doctors ignored my question as to whether this was caused by the vaccine. I was a perfectly healthy, 33 year old mom at the time, with no medical history. My official diagnosis is idiopathic acute longitudinal acute extensive transverse myelitis, and I believe it was instigated by the Moderna vaccine.

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

Canada vaccine injury support program

Q: Are there any treatments we should know about that helped?

Plasmapheresis Exchange therapy

Q: Have you had Covid before?

I have never tested positive

Q: What do you wish others knew?

We all rushed to get the vaccine, because we felt it was best for our friends and family. Now we need to take our time, look into what negative reactions have occurred, before we rush to have our children immunized with these vaccines.

Many did rush to get this procedure, and many of them with good intentions. However, good intentions don't protect us from evil. We must constantly be aware and informed. As you mentioned especially for our children. We cannot be coerced, shamed, threatened and lied when deciding our best actions for the most innocent of God's gifts. Stay strong and thank you for your story.

I hope and pray you recover fully! There is NO WAY my grandkids will get injected with any of these untested for safety and efficacy mRNA based injections.. We the general public ARE the clinical trial and the “study" shows that they are very harmful to many people..based on all the posts here on Real not Rare..
