Yesterday, I had a heart attack

My cardiovascular system is completely normal & healthy

But last week I took the Pfizer vaccine and there are reports that it’s been causing heart complications

Most causes have been ruled out and it looks like Pfizer may have done this to me... ImageImage
The number of people (specifically younger men) that’ve reached out saying they’ve had heart issues too post vaccine is astounding

Even people in my immediate network

“Low odds of happening” doesn’t seem too low from where I’m sitting
Moreover, according to my doctor, there have been many more cases of my exact situation in this very hospital

Young men, 18-30 years old, going through mild to severe cardiac events post vaccine (even Moderna + J&J)

This is scary.
It’s official. I have myocarditis.


Either from a viral infection (which I have no symptoms of sickness) or from the vaccine

I think the answer is clear.

Feeling better. Should be discharged with medication later today 🙏
Also, I’m getting a physician exemption from needing to take Pfizer shot #2

Make of that what you will
Discharged, back at home & on some anti-inflammatory medication!

I’ll be sure to keep updating as I feel better and/or have more heart related events

Stay safe people and thank you for all of your heart warming messages about my health ♥️ Image
My case is now a piece of data in a broader study for vaccine reactions

That's pretty cool

Doctors say odds of this happening are low, however, there are more cases popping up for men 18-30yo that are getting myocarditis across the US

Be on the lookout when you get vaxxed!
Also a few people have asked me what medications I'm on:

- 600mg ibuprofen every 6 hours
- Pepsin + colchicine every 12 hours

I'm ending the ibuprofen today as the pain is gone, but continuing pepsin + colchicine for the next 2-3 months

My Startup Failed

A story on happiness, sadness, highs, lows & everything in between

677 days ago, two friends from college & myself started Cha-Ching

The idea was simple

Allow people to manage all of their exchanges & wallets in one spot

This way there’s no need to use addresses & lose money like I did

But the execution was anything but simple
At the time of starting this, we were still in college & the 2017 bull run was going parabolic

So what’d we do?

- Drop out so we could dedicate all of our time and attention to this opportunity

- Use our newfound money to outsource development so we could ship something fast
