This is my COVID story, which is more about the vaccine than the virus. It doesn’t represent scientific evidence — but then the medical experts refuse to give us any real scientific evidence — only the prevarications of Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx.

For some background: I am a 66-year-old man. I do have a few comorbidities as I have diabetes. However, I am in fairly good condition. Up until a year prior to the COVID outbreak I was a diver for our sheriff’s department and passed the IADRS swim test every year.

I have never been an anti-vaccine nut, and have tended to trust the medical industry. That is a trust that has been forever shaken by the events of the past year.

I decided to get the vaccine in the spring of 2021. Almost immediately, I developed an annoying chronic cough. I didn’t think much of it because it was spring and pollen was in the air. After a few months of dealing with the cough, I was tested for allergies. Testing showed that I’m not allergic to anything. The doctor figured it was probably nasal inflammation and prescribed an antihistamine. Two shots up the nose every day and I should be fine. The medicine did improve the cough, but it never went away.

By the fall of 2021 I was beginning to experience shortness of breath when doing routine things like climbing stairs. My wife encouraged me to see a doctor. I decided that getting back in shape was a better idea. I increased my exercise routine. But every time I exercised vigorously my blood pressure would nose-dive — leaving me tired and lightheaded. I cut back my exercise routine a bit, and that’s how it went for several months.

In the spring of 2022, we attended our nephew’s graduation from the Naval Academy. We actually got to hear Joe Biden lie about being appointed to the Naval Academy and prattle on about his bromance with John McCain. That’s when I found out how useless the COVID vaccine is. Upon returning home from the Biden super spreader event, I came down with COVID.

I felt like crap, but it didn’t seem like anything life-threatening. After a week I was still under the weather and my wife insisted that I go to the doctor. Then when all hell broke loose. The doctor listened to my heart, did an electrocardiogram, and sent me immediately to the emergency room. I was in atrial fibrillation. Part of my heart wasn’t beating correctly. The condition was making my heart much less efficient and put me at risk of a stroke.

At the ER, the doctor ran additional tests and discovered that I was in congestive heart failure — caused by a buildup of fluid around my heart. He concluded that I had been in heart failure for many months — preceding catching COVID. It seems that catching the virus didn’t cause my heart problem, it revealed it.

The ER doctor put me on medication to slow my heart rate, minimize the stroke risk, and force my body to eliminate the excess fluid I was retaining. I lost 23 pounds in just a couple of weeks. That’s almost three gallons of fluid that was squeezing my heart to death.

And then for the first time in 18 months, my cough went away — the cough that I had acquired just after getting vaxed. Which brings me to the point of this long story. In my opinion, my cough wasn’t from allergies, nasal congestion, or global warming. It was a side effect of my heart failure. The heart failure that began just after I got the COVID vaccine. I can’t prove it, but I believe just as confidently as I believe that Joe Biden didn’t get 81 million votes from his basement, that the vaccine put me in heart failure. That would be the same vaccine that Biden attempted to mandate for everyone holding down a job.
