Gardasil Girl Courtney Tells Her Vaccine Injury Story

Broken-Trust-725187 From The Truth About Gardasil group HERE. 

My name is Courtney. I had the first shot on Dec. 17, 2007. My mom is a cancer survivor and I was 22 and sexually active.  Preventing cervical cancer sounded great.  On Dec. 27th I became ill.  I was throwing up and had an excruciating headache. The following morning, I went to a walk-in clinic and was told I had a migraine and a urinary tract infection and sent home.

After 10 hours of not moving from bed (not even to go to the bathroom), I began throwing up again. My mom decided I was dehydrated and drove me to the ER. Within 5 hours, I had fallen into a coma that lasted 9 days and then spent 14 days on a ventilator.  After 10 days of testing, the doctor’s determined Gardasil had caused acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM).  I had lesions on almost every level of my brain.  It took 1000 milligrams of steroids to revive me from the coma.  When I woke up I was unable to move my legs and my short term memory was not functioning.  After 18 days in ICU, I was transferred to an inpatient rehabilitation hospital.  I had to relearn how to walk, write, and swallow.  After 28 days I went home with a walker.

It took 10 months of agonizing doctor’s appointments where I was told I would never fully recover and spend the rest of my life on drugs.  I lost all independence and relied fully on my parents.  I finally went to the MAYO clinic and went through a three-week pain rehabilitation program.  I was able to get off of eight major medications including fentanyl (narcotic analgesic), Percocet (narcotic pain reliever), lorazapam (anti-anxiety) and Neurontin (epilepsy). I was taught cognitive-behavioral therapy to cope with chronic pain.

Today I am much better, but still suffer from side effects. My ring and pinky fingers on both hands and my feet are completely numb.  My eye sight has changed close to 30 times since the coma.  It has gotten worse, then better and now I need reading glasses for double vision.  Finally, at 25, I suffer from what doctor’s call a “neurogenic (spastic) bladder.”  I have no control over my bladder and have been forced to take daily medications.

This is what my brother suffered from in 2004 and then again in 2009. His diagnosis? ADEM also. I always knew it was caused by his vaccines years earlier in the Coast Guard (last ones in 2000), but it wasn't until recently that Massachusetts General Hospital actually documented in his records that his vaccines could be to blame for his condition (we made sure that we received hard copies). They also told him to avoid vaccines in the future. A little too late now, considering that he was just approved for SSDI, don't you think?

Thank you for sharing your story as it allowed me to find you. I share a similar story at 27 years old, as I was completing my doctorate. I am now in debilitating pain, also considering the AMyo clinic.

I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to talk to you. Please email me if you feel comfortable.

I use to believe, not long ago, that all of the being scared of vaccines was ridicoulous. That parents were looking for something to blame. But reading more and more, after reaching out to parents, who like my well beloved mom are warrior parents (and I say that with pride) I am very scared.

And disgusted, and upset. Yes I have beat all the odds and lead a sucessful life. But I have had to climb out of the nine circles of you know where to get there, with my mom and dad there every step of the way.

One of the things that my dear step dad, who has also fought for me use to tell me that has stuck with me is to never use my disability as a crutch. And I never have. But to learn that the things I went through should never of happened boils my blood!!

This story, too reminds me of my brother's story. When he was a baby, long before I came along, I was told that after shots he got deathly ill. For several months he got put on resperators. He had constant diherea, was badly dehydrated and the doctors had to fight to save him. He nearly died. :(

Fortuntaely, he did not get Aspergers. But he does have more than just a few traits, which is why the army has been such a life saver for him. But I think about his story, and mine, and I can't believe as I did anymore.

And the activist in mean cries out for action! And believe me will I say, it will be taken!!

God Bless all of you and Courtney!! There will be justice, in this life or the next!!

As for the vax pushers, your judgement day will come, and what will you say in your defense?

Proof that Papilloma Virus only thrives on a faulty immune system...

My Shocking Story: Treeman the Cure - Medical History:

HPV Vaccines are not the answer to CERVICAL CANCER... the only way to avoid this HPV from getting out of control is by maintaining a healthy immune system... in a healthy person this wart disappear on their own... Just like in patients that have the HIV, only the ones that have immune dysfunction will develop AIDS!!! Vaccines will only make things worse because it cripples the immune system further and further causing auto immune diseases!!!

"Dr. Diane Harper, lead researcher in the development of two human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, said the controversial drugs will do little to reduce cervical cancer rates and, even though they’re being recommended for girls as young as nine, there have been no efficacy trials in children under the age of 15.

....Dr. Harper began her remarks by explaining that 70 percent of all HPV infections resolve themselves without treatment within a year. Within two years, the number climbs to 90 percent. Of the remaining 10 percent of HPV infections, only half will develop into cervical cancer, which leaves little need for the vaccine.

She went on to surprise the audience by stating that the incidence of cervical cancer in the U.S. is already so low that 'even if we get the vaccine and continue PAP screening, we will not lower the rate of cervical cancer in the US.'

There will be no decrease in cervical cancer until at least 70 percent of the population is vaccinated, and even then, the decrease will be minimal.

....At the time, which was at the height of Merck’s controversial drive to have the vaccine mandated in schools, Dr. Harper remained steadfastly opposed to the idea and said she had been trying for months to convince major television and print media about her concerns, 'but no one will print it.'

'It is silly to mandate vaccination of 11 to 12 year old girls,' she said at the time. 'There also is not enough evidence gathered on side effects to know that safety is not an issue.'

When asked why she was speaking out, she said: 'I want to be able to sleep with myself when I go to bed at night.'"

HI COURTNEY!!

I hope you feel better soon !!
Eat lots of vegetables and drink raw vegetable juice at least once and preferably twice a day. The vitamin B complex vitamins will help you recover your nerve function, also take enhansa from Lee Silsby as it has curcumin which has a natural anti viral effect and do not take any more vaccines ever!! These people are drug dealers plain and simple and you cannot trust anything they say about their pharmaceuticals ever , plain and simple. As someone has already noted it only protects against a couple of strains of HPV, further cervical cancer is linked not to the presence of HPV but to the presence of a chronic infection of HPV. Big difference, huge difference as your chances of getting chronic HPV infection are quite slim and really is related to frequent unprotected sex with an assortment of sexual partners and not just being sexually active and yes having two or three partners at differnt times is different from having twenty or thirty partners within a fixed time frame.

Courtney just think positive and don't look back you can recover!!

Thank you for telling your story, Courtney. I am so glad you got the care you needed to save your life.

It sounds very familiar. Relearning to do so many things you could do, neuropathy in the extremities, vision distortions, pain. Although I'm guessing that is what my son is going through. Although he is no longer pre verbal, he cannot express his physical feelings. We were overwhelmed this year when he was able to tell us that he was cold, or hungry. He was eight years old.

Thank you for unveiling the ugly truth - undeniable from a healthy, speaking, walking young adult that was injured by one vaccine.

The toll in human suffering and misery caused by this toxic cocktail is enormous. The likelihood of Merck ever doing a voluntary recall of Gardasil is slim to nil. Its approval by FDA was based upon pure "junk" science. To use aluminum adjuvants as a control arm is utterly absurd. There are over 7,000 references to the toxicity of aluminum.

http://www.luminet.net/~wenonah/hydro/al.htm#toxic

Aluminum adjuvants are neurotoxic. Aluminum adjuvants promote sludging and thrombosis of blood by lowering the zeta potential. This is basic physical chemistry and colloidal science, not junk science. It is completely predictable that venous thromboembolic and cardiac events have been reported.

And on top of this: it doesn't sound like Courtney was told the limitations of the vaccine...in that it only prevents two strains of many cancer causing hpv strains and - since she was already sexually active- did they test her beforehand to see if she already had an hpv infection? I bet not - even though Gardasil can cause lesions in those with an existing infection. the entire roll out and approval of this vaccine is BS.

magghe

despite the rhetoric we are fed, the drug companies have not done long enough trials on these drugs! They have "field tested" them....but have NO idea what the long term affects on humans will be! I REFUSE to allow my child to be their guinea pig....she will NEVER get this vaccine! Just because they say it's safe, doesn't mean it is! Bottom line, they are pumping our kids full of chemicals, in the name of profits!

mary podlesak

Hanging is too good for the vaccine establishment. I am certain they would attribute Courtney's symptoms to coincidence.

Many blessings and thanks to Courtney for sharing her story. It's clearly a hard one to tell and a harder one to have lived through. It should have have happened. As the parent of two vaccine injured children who may have suffered from ADEM (too late to determine now except for vestiges of myelin issues and susceptibility to brain inflammation), I feel that Gardasil victims are part of our community too and their plight and fight for justice is ours as well.

Never stop getting the word out and I hope that Courtney and every person injured by Gardasil will find successful treatment and amends.

DSO

Thank you so much for sharing your story. I hope moms everywhere are seeing and listening. In the daily course of my life I have had heard horror stories about this vaccine, the first of which was a nurse of mine relating to me that her girls' hair was falling out of their heads as a side effect.

I am sorry you have had to endure this. I hope someday you will make a full recovery.

kathleen

Courtney, God bless you and your family. Thank you for speaking up and letting others know your story, as that is the foundation for bringing about awareness and hopefully preventing more damage to other girls. And like Jen, I pray that you are stronger and better every day!

Allison

Oh Courtney, I am so incredibly sorry for what you have been through. You are very brave to tell your story so that others may be aware of the dangers. I pray that your health continues to improve and that you may live your life again without pain.

jen

Courtney, I hope you get better and better every day. You have had a tough go. I also hope that "the doctors" are being very vocal about this atrocity and letting the AAP, CDC, neurological co-workers know exactly what they think happened and advocating so that this doesn't continue. Elsewise how can they live with themselves?

Autimum

This is exactly why I won't risk giving my daughter any more vaccines. Despite the controversy, I believe the MMR had some influence on the development of my daughters ASD, as she had a severe 'encephalitis'reaction not long having it, which was possibly exasterpated by the chickenpox virus following the MMR....Now she has progressed so far (12 years later! After much treatment and intervention! AND NO DRUGS)How can I even contemplate it? I am considering a homeopathic alternative for any future 'required' vaccines after having an immunity test for the specific diseases....
