Sue loves horses. She loves to ride and was riding almost every day, as well as working a physically demanding job. Sue hasn’t been able to work or ride her horses in over 4 months now.
Like many Australians, due to mandates, Sue was told that she needed to be vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to keep her job. Although she didn’t want the jab at that time, she reluctantly booked her appointment.
“I went to the doctors and without any questions from doctor sent me to the nurse to get it done knowing full well I have Gitelman disease.
I went down extremely fast and was completely paralyzed to the point couldn’t talk, walk or have feelings to go to the toilet. My potassium dropped to an all-time low, nearly unconscious. An ambulance rushed me in and I spent weeks in hospital with people with the same problems.”
Sue was discharged from hospital, only to return 10 days later with her potassium levels at an extremely dangerous level. “My potassium again dropped from 4.6 to very low levels so was put back on heart monitors and various IVs. I got my speech back but have no feeling in my left arm and legs.”
Discharged a second time after a lengthy stay, Sue posted online on Facebook about what she was going through, with a phone link. Only to be met with threats from her Doctor that if it wasn’t taken down, she would no longer be treated, to which she obliged.
Sue’s symptoms have been extensive.
“I had to have a catheter as I was paralyzed. The pain was extremely excruciating so was on all sorts of painkillers. Today, 4 months on I am walking some days, but still have no feeling in my hand. I have brain fog, memory problems, and sight problems and I’m on 4800mgs of potassium a day and still end up on drips. I’m speaking out now as I was silenced before, but no more.”
Sue had to overcome a great deal of pain to get this message out. Her story has been shared on Senator Gerard Rennick’s social media platform, as the Senator is actively advocating for vaccine victims, those suffering adverse reactions.
“I still have blackouts falling downstairs, or getting out of bed to find I’ve got no feeling in my legs and fall. Excuse my writing as I’ve had sprockets with speech and something not quite right, I miss words.” Says Sue.
Even though Sue has suffered so tremendously, physically, mentally, and financially from her first dose, she has been told that she has to get the 2nd shot. Sue obviously has grave concerns, feeling as if she may die or become a vegetable. Even though she has been told that her current recovery will take 12 months, at a recent Doctors appointment she was told she would not get an exemption.
“No income coming in and can’t work anyway let alone go shopping, my parents and brother have been helping me, picking me off floors, and ringing ambulances for me. The seizures in hospital and shaking uncontrollably to the point it’s frightening for my children which I can no longer look after. No help from NDIS as Doctors won’t diagnose as they have to admit fault to jab. I could go on and on.”
Sue is currently back in hospital again with dangerously low potassium levels.
Adverse reactions are grossly underreported, and often it’s left to the patient or their families to report their adverse reactions. If you or anyone you know are suffering adverse reactions from a covid-19 provisionally approved vaccine, please speak with your health professional, and make sure your reactions are recorded with the TGA.
