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

I am presently 64 yrs old. I was able to perform all my tasks relative to my Commercial Real Estate career. I would regularly hike my 3 Golden Retrievers in the Ozark Mtns. and enjoy fishing on the lake. One year ago, I was taken off the ventilator in ICU and allowed to finally go home, barely able to stand and suffering extreme pain/stiffness/weakness, fatigue, and debility. I still suffer daily from chronic pain and the resultant sleeplessness, profound muscle weakness, and debility. I still require a walker or cane. I live alone, and it is only by the grace of God that I have persevered the seemingly hopeless situation.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

Extreme pain/stiffness/weakness, fatigue, and debility. Symptoms have gotten progressively worse over time. Thinking I have Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), and/or possible CIDP.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Home rehab and time has somewhat improved my debility, however neurological symptoms seem to be getting progressively worse.

Which solutions were not helpful?

I was 911'ed in septic shock to ER and then ICU. As soon as I was deemed fit, I had emergency decompression surgery (C3-7) done. After 4 mos ICU/hospitalization, I was sent to an asylum they said was a nursing home. It was at this rehab center, I was given the jab w/out my informed consent. 2-3 days later I was in intense pain throughout my body, most notably in my hands and feet. I had 103-degree fever, vomiting, and experienced multiple falls. After yet another bout of hospital-acquired septic shock, I required a double bypass surgery due to blood clotting. I am now able to walk short distances un-aided, but still require a walker and a cane to get slowly about. My bypass brought on another battle with sepsis, and I was finally discharged home, barely able to stand up on my own. It has been hell ever since, and I can't seem to find the right Dr. to help me with this disease.

What would you like others to know?

I am alone, suffering, and I really need help......
