Lack of response to a 20x normal CRP score.
MD friend of mine said, "take the vaccine, it will give you a 50/50 chance of making you better." It didnt...

What would you like others to know?

Lucky that the Covid issues manifested themselves as inflammation rather than myocarditis.
None of this is in the VAERS.
Participated in KU MEdical Center Long Covid study that was a waste of time. Only took blood and stool samples as a data grab.
Had more adverse reactions than all but those who died.
This is a thumb nail of the 3 years of problems. Way more details than listed here.
