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

I suffered a severe brain injury whilst in the Army and they got rid of me, the Government and the Ministry of Defence didn’t care but I was promised an Army pension for my 14.5 years service, I was discharged by letter on 12th August 1997 after being returned to the U.K. for hospital treatment (they said I had returned to service far to early, even though I had passed all the medicals that allowed me to go to Bosnia.

After months of outpatient appointments, tests, I was told by the Welfare Officers that I would need to have a medical examination where the decision would be made to return me to my unit, or if things weren’t suited I would be Medically Discharged.
I never had the medical and was never officially discharged I sat in limbo for months, I received no pay (which I was promised would continue until I was RTU’d or discharged) the money stopped immediately and I received a normal letter asking me to return my kit.
I took my kit to my own unit and that was it. The Army Pension I was promised never appeared the continuation of wages never happened and any chance of civilian employment never happened.
Since I was forced from the Army in 1997, I have lived on state benefits, my wife has had to give up her full time employment to become my full time carer.
Nobody is interested in my story and life isn’t worth living.
Since I left the Army I’ve suffered a multitude of ailments, Organic Personality Disorder, PTSD, Epilepsy, Chronic Headaches and lately since mid December 2022, I’ve been told I suffer from Athsma, Type 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, Loss of both Long and Short Term Memory Loss, Dissociative Seizures and other related issues.
Since December I’ve visited hospital 4 times and been kept in for treatment that lasted 4 days before being let home.
I went in by ambulance 3 times on Blue Lights because things were touch and go at the time. My blood pressure at times was upwards of 180-200+ at times and oxygen was as low as 37.
Now I am so embarrassed about my situation that I fear that if things go that way again, I don’t think I would phone for help as the staff are overworked and underpaid without having to worry about me.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I have never in my life had a cold or flu, when I was ill aged around 40, I was encouraged to take my flu jab., I suffered terribly for around 5 weeks and blamed the flu jab, I promised myself from then on I wouldn’t have another and I didn’t. I’m even a bit wary of getting the jab now but we’re pro-vaccine to eliminate this Coronavirus and stood in line to have all our vaccinations faithfully, by professionals who were intelligent enough to know what they were doing and to be honest, our medical professionals have our lives in their hands and we are expected to trust and believe in them at all times.

Since December 2022, since we received our vaccine 4 and the flu jab, life hasn’t been so good, I have been taking Dissociative Seizures that have lasted anything up to around 4.5 hours at a time, my GP said they weren’t epilepsy seizures, he thought they were Rigors(which are usually 2.5-5 minutes long (where mines were lasting 4-4.5 hours at a time.

These seizures have resulted in having what can only be described as electric shocks, they started in the centre of my chest, then onto my R/H upper inside of my Right arm, and inner arm pit then round to my right side shoulder, then onto my left upper arm and under arm pit.
I admit to being worried at this time because the shocks were really sore and disabling, they were enough to take me off my feet.

On going to hospital for these seizures, the doctors were stumped , they couldn’t find anything to explain the pain or shocks, then they said I had a pneumonia sorry make that 4 pneumonias. They could only say that the pneumonia is caused by the seizures, the seizures were caused by the assault in 1995 and they can’t do anything about it. So far I’ve been in hospital 4 times for a minimum of four days at a time and they are still no closer to finding out what my problem is.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

Please see section above as I have literally wrote everything down, I didn’t realise that I was going to be asked in the next question.

Which solutions were not helpful?

So far there have been no solutions, and there are no doubts I will probably be back in hospital within the next week or so.
I have come to depend on my inhalers much more.

What would you like others to know?

That wouldn’t be up to me, but if there is a connection to the jabs, then the form of vaccination should be removed until further tests are made.
I do however believe that people should be made aware of any possible side effects.
