I had a horrible experience with the Pfizer jab which I am still doing rehabilitation on.
The first jab caused tightness in the chest and I had a little trouble breathing for 10 days. However, the immunologist told me to proceed with the 2nd jab as it was more important to get the shot as we were letting delta go through the country – although no-one realized it was going to change into the milder omicron at that stage.

But back to my experience, I had the 2nd jab and it was awful. I ended up at the emergency department 3 times and called the ambulance once. I also had a near death experience when I passed out. I’m still suffering 12 months onwards.
Initially, I had mini black outs that lasted for 6 weeks where I would just nod off and come to seconds later. I couldn’t drive as it was too dangerous. I also had pericarditis and had a heart attack which left a small crinkle on my heart. Also, my esophagus stopped working properly and I had to sleep upright in bed for some months. My chest was so tight I couldn’t breathe properly and my skin became super sensitive and toothpaste burned my mouth.
I also experienced vagus nerve damage. The vagus nerve is the longest nerve in the body and runs from the head down to the lungs, heart and stomach. It is a major component of your flight or fight response.
It has taken me many long months to heal the vagus nerve. I was throwing up multiple times a week because of the injury. Certain foods, too much water, bending over, and emotional responses would set it off – it has all been very weird. Even seeing something slightly gross on TV would have me running for the sink. Twelve months later and I still throw up far too often but it has improved immensely. I can do yoga now and eat and drink as much as I like without repercussions.
I have been doing all kinds of exercises to heal it. I have been very imaginative in my efforts.
After the Pfizer jab I also passed out twice. The first time I woke up in a seizure. I was very frightened. The seizures would not stop and were getting worse so I dragged myself out of bed. Whilst holding onto the kitchen counter, I walked back and forth, although it was more like stumbling, to try to force the seizures out of my body. Luckily it worked.
The second time I passed out I was sitting on the couch and just fell sideways.
I started travelling towards the light and it felt amazing. It was so wonderful and permeated all of me. My body didn’t seem to exist and I was only conscious of my consciousness. I wanted to go to the light as it felt so fantastic. After a little time, I realized that the light was THE LIGHT and freaked. I realized I was dying.
I tried to back pedal and stop travelling towards it. But its force was really strong and I struggled.
Then a voice came into my head and said, ‘If you don’t wake up now you are going to die.’
It was loud and woke me. I don’t know how I did it, but I dragged myself upwards to a sitting position.
That night I didn’t think it was wise to sleep, I was too scared, so I cleaned the house instead. It was a crazy night full of emotion and fear.
The next day I walked all day. I was still too scared to sit and rest, and I was trying to get the jab out of my body.
On that walk I had many parts of my life go through my mind. One by one all these scenarios came rushing to the fore front and I got to see them from a higher perspective. Everything contained love and a spiritual knowing. It was a profound experience. It was like a year’s worth of counselling packed into one day. Issues got unpacked. Beliefs got reconfigured super fast.
That near death experience did something to my psyche.
I’m so happy that happened to me. (I wasn’t at the time. But I am reframing it all as positive as I can be as this makes me feel better and stronger). I wish I could explain that experience to you more clearly. I can say that each time I was confronted with who I am I chose love as my underlying belief and this sustained me.
I’ve been angry about the long term effects the Pfizer jab has had on my health. I also then switch to positive and get on with making the most of my days. I also have a skin rash from covid which after 8 months is getting worse. So, I’m currently trying a regime to switch off the inflammatory response in my body. I’ll know more in a few weeks if it is working.
So, that’s it for now.
