What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?

I had asthma and overweight, but I had started CrossFit 3 days a week. Got up to running a mile without stopping.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I had the first vaccine August 13, 2021 and got severe covid symptoms 2 days later. Sick, lethargic with fever and severe cough and body aches. 2nd vaccine September 10, 2021 sick 2 days later. Same symptoms as before but worse. I continuously have gotten sick with same symptoms every month for the last 14 months. I have been on every antibiotic and steroid along with breathing meds, 2 inhalers, c-pap and breathing treatments.
