So... this is another installment of my random post; this one might be stranger than the others. I'd like to talk about Gardasil, the HPV vaccine.
DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a doctor, physician, nurse or anyone who can give medical advice. I have never been to medical school or studied medicine. My opinions are my own and do not constitute as medical advice or any advice in general. My opinions are not in representation of anyone else. The following is merely a composite of my experiences and readings/views of outside sources.
According to Wikipedia: "Gardasil, also known as Gardisil or Silgard or recombinant human papillomavirus vaccine [types 6, 11, 16, 18], is a vaccine for use in the prevention of certain strains of human papillomavirus, specifically HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18."
Recently, I was watching YouTube when one of the videos in my feed from a subscription caught my eye. The titled contained "Gardasil" and "Asian." Naturally I was curious because as mentioned in a previous post, I am Asian. The short video went into discussion about the side effects of Gardasil, mainly that 7 our of 8 test trial subjects died were Asian women so there might be a genetic factor involved. Well, that made me nervous because I took all three Gardasil shots back in my late teenage/early twenties. I would say sometime in 2006-2008 when the commercials first came out claiming to prevent some forms of cervical cancer. What woman isn't frighten about that?
I decided to look up other videos about Gardasil side effects and numerous videos came up with young women describing the troubles they've suffered after receiving this shot. Mind you, I don't know if anyone can prove it. However, I have seen an article about 64 Japanese women who suffered permanent physical/neurological damages filing a lawsuit against their cities for the mass immunization of this drug. It kind of relates to that first video I saw about a possibility of genetic incompatibility. That doesn't mean only Asian women are affected though. The terrible effects didn't seem to spare any racial group.
Anyhow, after reading more on the subject and watching more YouTube videos of young people describing their plight from the vaccine, it seems there is a high amount of aluminum in the vaccine itself. Now, I believe in vaccines in general. I believe that giving the body a deactivated version of the contaminants and letting it perform "practice combat" so to say, is a good idea, but inclusion of heavy metals just doesn't seem necessary. For example, the regular flu vaccine has 50,000 parts per billion of mercury while the EPA identifies 200 parts per billion to be hazardous waste. They call it thiomersal or thimerosal and said that it is a necessary preservatives but this doesn't seem true since the UK removed this ingredient from their flu vaccine in the early to mid 2000s. I won't go into so-called conspiracy theories but if you have time, look up the Plutonium Files.
Now, why am I really writing this post? Well, after receiving the Gardasil shots, there was a time where I had neurological and physical issues, some symptoms remain today. At first, I blamed genetics. I blamed hormones. I blamed myself. I went into severe depression and blamed everything I have ever done wrong under the sun because I didn't know why my healthy body felt as though it was crumbling. I was helpless. I never thought to link the rapid changes to a vaccine until now. After I kept reading about the side effects and discovering there were many linkages between the reported effects the experts never openly stated and my own experiences, it made me think. All those years I sought treatments for the wrong things and made everything worse. If I had known and didn't take the shots, would I have had those years back and enjoyed life instead of having locked myself up most days wondering if I'd wake up the next day?
It started out as neck and back pain as well as numbness in my arms which then turned into severe pressure in my head (pain that still exists today) and after several MRI scans, nothing was found so nothing was done except for pain meds upon pain meds that never helped after a couple of days. I couldn't sleep most nights because I felt like seizing up. I couldn't breathe, my heart went crazy, blood pressure shot up, my entire body trembled from cold sweat. I do not have sleep apnea. I was not overweight. I was, if anything, a fit young person back then with no prior medical issues; not even seasonal allergies. I showed/am showing signs of alopecia which none of my relatives have. My once severely good memory have turned dull. I can barely remember anything from my college days (around the time I took the vaccine) and I feel like I've missed out years of my life (literally and figuratively). My cognitive ability has slowed tremendously. I barely have the energy to get up. My liver enzymes have shot up. No, I don't smoke and I drink like a prude granny, maybe one drink four times a year if even that. On a good day, I'd feel like I'm 60 years old. I'm thirty.
So, what about it?
Well, I regret having taken the Gardasil vaccines. I will never be able to prove that it caused all my medical issues and turned a healthy body to a broken pile of scrap metal nor have I any proof the vaccine is solely to blame. However, I also didn't know the extent of side effects since they didn't tell me about them. I was asked if I was allergic to yeast and eggs, common ingredients in vaccines, but nothing about having immunity to high dosage of aluminum. I didn't know 7/8 people who died during trials were Asian women. I didn't know the plethora of other things that most people would say is my fault for not having read about the vaccine because I trusted the power that be to tell me it was safe. My only comment here is to learn from my mistake: read about the vaccine before taking it. Assess your risk. This is not to turn you off from Gardasil because if it had this effect on everyone, it would have been pulled (I hope). Do what I didn't do... or better yet don't do what I did, which was to trust blindly those who would point to the fine print to keep their filthy hands clean from any wrongdoing when they know full well their innocence is long gone.
