Almost 3 weeks since dose 2 of the #PfizerVaccine with #LongCovid and I am six days completely symptom free. This makes me think my issue was persistent virus and resultant autoimmune activation. Body still feels overreaction, but not sick. It is wonderful.

I had a very strong reaction to the second shot, and ended up in the emergency room with vertigo and tachycardia. It went away. I would get the vaccine again in a heartbeat.

In short, the vaccine was a Rollercoaster for a while, kind of like long covid itself, but ended well as it seems to have helped train my body to fight what was left of the virus.

If this changes I'll let you know.

There's a huge concerted effort underway to discredit long covid so insurance companies won't have to pay. It's sociopathic and intentional. This is how capitalism works. It uses sex, gender, race, class to create "othered" "inferior" groups who are just "hysterical." Pure evil.
It's gerrymandering inside your own body. It's collective widespread emotional abuse and invalidation. It's allowing physical pain to continue, while telling you it's not happening. Then, when you react in a rage, it's labeling you crazy.
These are the same tactics all narcissists, sociopaths and abusers use and we are seeing it on a massive scale now. They think we won't fight back.

They're wrong.
