Diane Zakos

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

I’ve always been a healthy and active mom/wife/grandmother/employee. Rarely go to the doctor and would only get the occasional cold/flu.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

I had COVID 4/2020 and recovered fine. After I received my first vaccine, I became sick every 4weeks or so with various flu-like symptoms. I would be sick for 3-4 days each time. I received the J$J booster in January of 2022. I am now sick every 10-14 days with brain fog, dizziness, memory issue (simplest things) nausea , digestion issue, headaches, extreme fatigue and insomnia, my hands and forearms become numb and tingly when I sleep and I have restless leg syndrome. The duration of Iillness is 5-6 days. Ii can’t drive when I’m sick. I call in sick to work more than I show up. My periods are all over the place.

Describe the solutions that helped your symptoms

I have found no relief. I take all the supplements, do detox baths and I’m sick 75% of the time. Doctors don’t know what to do and have offered no solutions.

Which solutions were not helpful?

When your doctor shrugs his shoulders and says “I don’t know what to do for you”. That’s the solution I’ve been given that’s has been the least helpful

What would you like others to know?

Do not get vaccinated on top of natural immunity. I feel like my body has no immune system anymore. Any task or activity I do comes with punishment from my body. I feel like my body is slowly dying and no one is doing anything to help me. I went from a healthy 45 year old woman to someone that feels like they’re 80.
