I had all my vaccinations from birth and throughout childhood had consistent infections, colds, flu’s, eczema, dermatitis, skin rashes, stomach and digestion issues, I was basically always sick and no, it’s not “normal” nor was the severity or consistency or frequency of mine any where near “normal”.
My parents both worked really hard so being low on time, energy and money, they took me to GP’s and even specialist all bulk billed. They didn’t do much besides medicate me and send me to another doctor or specialist or just fob it off.
In high school I experienced frequent stomach issues, pains and twists and clogs and nausea along with migraines and fatigue and neurological issues, being taught to ignore it I ignored it besides sometimes complaining to my friends that I had a headache. I didn’t realise at the time that I was experiencing chronic fatigue syndrome and had autoimmune disease
Because this was ignored by the time I was 26 I had been trying to hard to live a ‘normal’ life working and partying and eating whatever I wanted and doing all the family and social things and I was forced to stop my full time job after going to work chronically ill for 18 months straight then trying to work from home – they asked me to go get myself well. I didn’t choose to stop work but I was bed ridden. I couldn’t get out of bed barely at all, getting to the toilet or shower was insanely painful and I just couldn’t even see – blurry vision and dizziness. I had been to many doctors and specialists by this time and had been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, fibromyalgia and various gut issues. A bit later I found a holistic doctor who found I had typhoid fever which I had contracted overseas 4 years prior but my system was so weak it couldn’t flush it out as my partner had it too but he was fine.
Before we travelled overseas I also was trying to do the right things, got the ‘shots’ and I got very ill, same symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, and a GP said I had ‘ had some sort of reaction to the yellow fever vaccine’ and to rest.
The vaccines had been affecting me from day 1 and I have lived my whole life full of ill health. I don’t even know what it is like to feel or live a healthy life as I’ve never had it. I have tried visualising it and imagining what it would feel like but I actually have no idea.
I haven’t had any vaccines since the yellow fever vaccine in 2009.
I have a son and refused all ‘pregnancy vaccines’ and obviously my son has had none either.
In 2013 a nutritionist ran my genes and found I was a double MTHFR amongst other things which is quite severe reactions to vaccines and she said “no wonder you’re so sick, you’ve been vaccinated your whole life and none of your issues have been addressed”.
To this day, the brain and neurological issues have been the worse and have had the most impact on my life which is a huge side effects of the vaccines I received.
I am 35 with a 2 year old who has been out of work since 2010 and I have changed my entire life around to live a ‘healthy’ lifestyle full of organic food, meditation, yoga, holistic therapies etc. I still can’t concentrate or remember things or focus and I have constant pressure and pain all through my head, my brain is extremely inflamed.
I love reading but most of the time it is very difficult, I actually feel like someone has drugged me and I’m out of it.
It’s actually hurting and I struggle to write this so I hope this makes sense.
