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

I was a healthy young woman that walked 3-6 miles a day and did Zumba several days a week

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

I was mandated to take the vaccine at the 11th hour by my pharmaceutical job. My company said they would never mandate. Then they did and threatened if we didn’t take the vaccine, that they would deny unemployment.

I was determined to just get fired. However I had worked so hard to get my territory to where it was. So I cowardly took the vaccine on the last day at 1pm.

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

I had never had a headache before and was told it was a possible side effect. So I got some Advil at the pharmacy. An hour after getting the vaccine, I developed a headache. I thought, no big deal. However, it got worse as each day went on.

By day 5 I could barely get out of bed. I called my doctor and he said that’s normal for some people for a week.

A week went by and I still had a horrible headache. He was thinking possible Migraine but more like vasculitis from the vaccine. He treated me for both. I started migraine medication that did nothing and Toradol shot and high dose Prednisone.

I got into a neurologist pretty quickly thanks to a friend. The MRI result came back encephalitis ( swelling of the brain). He said my brain looked like I was 71, when I was only 48. On top of the headaches it gave me severe tachycardia and high blood pressure like 171/110. Stage 2 hypertension. I went on a high dose beta blocker as well.

I have been to 3 neurologists and 1 internal medicine doctor. They have tried everything possible. The steroids did nothing. I was told it would get better in 30, then 60, then 90 days. But definitely 6-7 months because it will start to wean off.

I’m 14 months post vaccine. It hasn’t weaned. Looks like I was vaccinated last week. My natural antibodies keep going up. I’ve only had COVID 1 time. So my natural antibodies are doing what they are supposed to do. But the fake vaccine antibodies is basically causing an autoimmune reaction since it crossed the blood brain barrier. I just go day by day.

I worked off and on last year. But couldn’t give it my all. I also am suffering from some cognitive and memory issues. I’m currently on FMLA/ STD. Hopefully my brain will rest and God will rid my body of this poison.

Q: Tell us about any Tests, Diagnoses, and/or Medical Care:

I’ve had tons of blood work. 3 MRI’s. 1 CT scan.

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

I contacted J&J, VAERS, and CDC. I got automatic responses from VAERS.

Q: Are there any treatments we should know about that helped or hurt your health?

Nothing has truly helped. Maybe the acupuncture a little bit.

Q: Have you had Covid before?

Yes. I had covid in December of 2020.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Do not get it. Get fired. You will find another job. I took it to keep my job and I can barely do my job now. I don’t think anyone should have to choose between their livelihood and a rushed-to-market vaccine. If you want to get 10 boosters have at it, but each person should get to decide for themselves. I pray for this group and for myself.

I had a client in my salon who studies constantly. He has said many have had results using ivermectin daily to help rid some

Of the problems from the vax. You can even order it from India without a prescription. Prayers for you


Research QHHT. It’s the only thing I’ve heard of that can completely rid the vaccine from the body. There’s only a handful of them across North America and even less that have experienced with vaccine side effects. I’ve heard it may take several session which is new cause no other illness/injury takes more than one session. If you happen to live in Vancouver, I can direct you to someone working on removing the vaccine but needs ppl willing to let him test to figure out a solid solution. It’s very safe and you have nothing to lose.


Trinna, I’m so sorry for you as well as everyone else that has been affected by this. My heart and prayers goes out to you.❤️✨


Listening to this and finding anything that “Dr. Bryan Ardis”podcast says may be helpful. It helped me tremendously.


I'm so sorry you are going through this Trinna! I also got a bad headache from this vaccine. The only things that have helped are lots of sleep, rest, never letting my blood sugar dip too low, and completely avoiding caffiene. Sertraline has relieved the brain fog. I didn't have a full time job when I got vaccinated, but I was extremely active. Now my energy level is much lower.
