This is Mark's story:
I had 2 astra zeneca jabs before most people had been offered their first, I was fast tracked for the vaccine due to me being 'vulnerable' by having a compromised immune system since I had the kidney transplant.
I, like most people believed what was happening at the very beginning of this shitshow and I was told to 'shield' due to my vulnerability. I did this and didn't see anyone for a year.
During this time the vaccines came about and i was already a bit wary of the thought of having one and i raised my questions about it with my kidney consultants who assured me it safe for me and that it would not interfere with my anti rejection tablets i take for the kidney, So I put my trust in the specialists that had kept me alive for years and went ahead and had the jab.
I felt ill for 3 or 4 days after the first shot, I remember I was very cold and generally felt like shit with flu like symptoms, It wasn't pleasant but I got over it fairly quickly.
I was even more wary about having the second but went along with what the specialists had told me and I had it .. After the second jab my body temperature dropped to a more or less freezing temperature & I could not get warm for 3 months, I was wearing a vest, t shirt, a fleece, a hoodie, longjohns and tracksuit bottoms and a dressing gown in my house with a scarf round my neck and a blanket over me and with the heating on full and i could still not get warm
Secondly my nose didn't stop running for 4 months, It was dripping uncontrollably all day every day and what was dripping out was at times foul smelling too.
I wasn't feeling ill as such but still i didn't feel right, I was always freezing cold and my nose was running like a tap, This went on for several months.
Thirdly a few months later I had a blood clot, Again i didn't feel right in myself, begun to worry & got myself to hospital and they found a blood clot in my left leg.
It was luckily discovered in time & it was dissolved with medication.
Whilst i was at the hospital that night there was 9 people there with blood clots, The next morning I had to take more meds and go back to the hospital for a scan to see if it was gone and there were 11 new people there with blood clots. All 20 of us were seen in a children's ward that was being used as a makeshift clot unit.
Now I was on dialysis for just under 5 years, 3 days a week, 5 hours at a time & here I had every drop of my blood taken out of me washed and put back into me via a machine & in all that time with that going on i never had a blood clot in me till I'd had these jabs.
I also had other issues shortly after the second jab with my eyes and ears, my vision went patchy and cloudy and I had problems with my right ear too along with suffering from severe headaches - something that i never get . Now i can't definitely say that these last issues were from the jab but I am pretty f*cking sure they was as tens of thousands of other people had reported the same issues on the yellow card adverse reactions site.
Now I myself really regret having the first two jabs and I really hope that I have got off lightly with what I have gone through as a result of having them.
I will not let them come near me with any boosters / future jabs.
I am not anti vax, I believe this should be pro choice and my personal choice is no more of that shit for me.
I am bored of the whole f*cking thing now and I will not comply with any of it.
