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

I was a full time Special Needs Teacher.

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

To retain employment. I was against this rushed vaccine and did not trust its efficacy.

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

I was already suffering a headache from whiplash from a motor vehicle accident in January 2021. After my first shot, my headache worsened. I had my shot before work and by the end of the day my head was pounding. Everyone complained of a bad headache and tiredness after their jab, so I thought nothing much of it and figured it would pass.

After my second shot, I was struggling with the headache and exhaustion. I had quite a few days off work, because I was too exhausted to get out of bed. On two occasions, I dragged myself in to work, and they sent me home after looking at me. I was determined to see my class of Autistic young people through to the end of the year. The last day of school was the 8th of December.

Not needing to go to work, I collapsed and did not do much. I thought I just needed rest. I was still in severe pain in my head and was suffering with diarrhea and nausea. On the 15th December, I was given an MRI-guided, pain blocker needle to help with the whiplash. I got no relief from that and head was still pounding. I tried to visit family and friends, but each outing lead to the next couple of days in bed, exhausted and in severe pain in my head. On the 24th December I felt so bad, now with a runny nose, I tested for Covid at the PA hospital and waited for the result. I spent Christmas eve and Christmas day alone. I tested negative. However, my temperature gradually rose to 39.6. I was feeling very disoriented, and it felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest.

Being alone, I called the ambulance. They made me put on a mask, and I began to throw up. I was tested for Covid again in the ambulance and again tested negative. I was ramped for 6 hours and in emergency for 6 hours. They did a chest x-ray, tested my urine, and once I was stable with the fluids they put in me, I was released. The next day I went to get up and my right leg was completely numb, and I was struggling to walk. Over the next couple of weeks, my torso and parts of my left leg became numb. I had a pain in the left side of my chest and could not wear a bra, because it was too panful. My Dr. admitted that it was an adverse reaction to the Covid jab, but refused to report it. The physio who was treating me for whiplash was now concentrating on my useless legs, and after 5 visits he announced he could do no more for me, and I really needed to see a neurologist, as both my legs did not respond to the reflex test.

I was wobbling and shaking like I had MS, so the neurologist sent me for tests for Transverse Myelitis. The results came back negative for this, and then he did his report which stated that I walked into his practice normally. This was a lie, as I was still wobbly but less so, as I was seeing a naturopath who had some success in stopping much of the shakes. I also suffered from an itchy rash all over my body. I was taking antihistamine tablets every six hours to ease the discomfort. I suffered mouth thrush from October to even now, less often though. I also suffered hemorrhoids on a too regular basis from October 2021 till June 2022. My urine has smelled like dead ants since the jabs, and nothing showed up in the urine test at the hospital. My eyes are constantly red and irritated and blurry. I complained of my pelvic bone being painful since the hospital visit. All tests have come back with nothing wrong with me, and the neurologist suggested to see a psychiatrist, as it is all in my head! My Dr. of 20 years just says I feel sorry for you and keeps saying I'm stressed, so stressed. I have tried to return to work on a part time basis, working one day and resting the next. This is important as the day after being upright and moving around without the chance to rest has me unable to move much the next day, and I find I am bed ridden.

My mental health has been in decline as I have been battling all this with no help from the medical profession and no help from family and friends. I have lost the ability to do a job that I love. I have battled Centrelink and am struggling to survive on $400 a week when rent is $300 a week. I am looking at homelessness and feeling like what is the point.

My reaction to the jab, all the pain and isolation, has caused my mental health to decline not as the medical professionals are suggestion that my mental health caused my symptoms. I was doing ok before the jabs.

I still struggle with the headaches, pain in my lower back, exhaustion after a busy day out, loose stools, itchy in different parts of my body requiring antihistamines. I am on 200 mg of Lyrica a day, and I am still in pain. I can no longer afford to see the Naturopath, after burning through $20,000 of my super to get me well. I have stagnated in my healing.

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

Tested for Transverse Myelitis, came back negative, and no more tests were given.

Q: Is there anything that has helped or hurt your health?

HELPED: Acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese herbs through a Naturopath has helped to get me walking again.

NOT HELPED: Dealing with health professionals who know, without a doubt, I suffered a vaccine injury and refuse to report or help me in any way - and then say it's all in my head.

Q: Have you had Covid before?

Never tested positive

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Please don't take this, and PLEASE do not give it to your children.
