    COVID Vaccine When you have Extreme Needle Phobia #COVID19 #Vaccine #Autism #Needlephobia

    TW-Covid, vaccine, needles
    I recently scheduled an interview at a local place that provides family and day services to adults with disabilities!! I'm excited for the interview but unfortunately the place follows certain medical requirements and the COVID vaccine is one of them. I have not gotten vaccinated simply due to the fact that I have straight up panic attacks around any kind of medical needle. I don't know if I can get a medical or religious exemption because of my issues. I would talk to my family doctor but I feel like she wouldn't give me a medical exemption because I have no other conditions other than my autism that would allow me to not get the vaccine. If anyone has any advice for me it would be extremely helpful considering my interview is next Wednesday!!

    Tdap #Vaccine side effects?

    Looking for others experiences here: I was recently told I have a weird autoimmune disease that causes my body to not hold on to my old vaccines and am now having to repeat childhood vaccines. Yesterday afternoon I got a Tdap shot (it’s a combo for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis/whooping cough) by the time I went to bed my whole lower body waist down was ridiculous sore, like muscle soreness but worse than anything than any workout could do ( and I can’t workout because of all my other illnesses) so much even the blankets hurt and it hurts even to sit on the toilet, I can barely walk, but arm is fine! Has anything like this ever happened to anyone else? #AutoimmuneDisease #Rare disease #NeurologicalDisorder #Tachycardia #GastrointestinalDisorder #bonedisease #maybemito #stillfiguringthingsout #vaccinesideeffects

    Covid misinformation on this platform

    Hello everyone, I was wondering what the moderators of The Mighty are doing to combat covid misinformation here. I have seen some posts that make false or misleading statements about the virus and/or vaccine (although I don't think most are intentionally false/misleading) and it really concerns me. While I firmly believe that people with questions or concerns about health matters should have a space to safely ask their questions without judgment, the important thing is that they can receive answers from people who are highly qualified to speak on the subject. Echo chambers that promote distrust in something that has been shown to be safe and effective by the scientific method only cause more problems. I realize that this is further complicated by there being users here with many health challenges that might actually impact their ability to get vaccinated, so I am in no way trying to make unvaccinated people feel bad! I just want to see these conversations staying grounded in science, and I hope that a) people with concerns are getting science-based and accurate answers and b) moderators are preventing this site from becoming a place to spread misinformation.

    Also, if you are skeptical about getting vaccinated (and your doctor has told you that it is safe for you!), I would like to recommend a couple episodes of the podcast "Oh No, Ross and Carrie." Back in the spring they interviewed their friend who had never gotten vaccinated before and helped answer some of her fears surrounding getting the covid shot! I think it is enlightening and compassionate and restored some of my hope for humanity. You can find it here: maximumfun.org/episodes/oh-no-ross-and-carrie/ross-and-carri...

    Has anyone with ME/CFS in Australia had specialist advice regarding the Covid vax? unsure how to get best advice/oversight. An immunologist?

    Final admittance

    Today, when reaching out for help, I finally put my thoughts onto paper- “I am going through a mental health crisis”.

    These last few days have been hard. Too hard. I’m burnt out, my mind is a mess, I have too much going on and I’m not coping. My appetite has gone again, my mind is constantly running, and I can’t even force a smile anymore.

    It’s coming up to the 4th anniversary of when I tried to take my own life, and when my chronic pain started. It’s going through my mind all the time. Along with my mind processing the news given to me months ago- that my depression is treatment-resistant.

    I know I’ll live through this, but it’s just so hard. The odds seem to be drastically against me. I’m just thankful to have my friends there for me.

    To add to my stress, my prescriptions didn’t get transferred over to my new GP surgery. And they don’t have any appointments available until about a week before I will run out of medication which leaves me very concerned and worried.

    At the moment I’m not feeling well physically either. I had my second covid vaccination yesterday and my arm is very painful, my muscles ache, I had a headache and I just generally feel unwell. My back also decided to hurt a lot earlier.

    It will be Important to get the #COVID19 Vaccine. Not only to make you feel safe and other people. It's because Ontario rolling out vaccine passport system on Sept. 22. The people who didn't get the shot will think this is unfair and shouldn't happen. It just may just help get more people to get the #Vaccine . Without it, You will NOT be allowed to go to some place. I think they are doing this to keep people safe and the places where people work keep safe. To be honest I don't really think i would feel safe being around people who haven't got the shot. I don't want to get sick or other people to get sick. That gives me #Anxiety I really do want normal life again..

    People who don’t believe Masks/Vaccine

    Sorry for the vent that’s about to come unfortunately this community is about the only thing I have to talk to and to understand me most days.
    When I got sick my friends and family slowly disappeared. Then you had the years before Biden.
    I think it was difficult to keep our political opinions quiet. I lost friends and family members well you can’t lose them (unfortunately) but ug you just avoid those conversations and them as much as possible. Now it’s Covid, mask mandates and the Vaccine.
    Reason for this rant. I have family members who don’t believe in wearing masks. I have relatives and friends who don’t want to take the vaccine.
    I am immunocopromised. So it makes me angry, really angry.
    They also have children, they as parents don’t believe in wearing masks so then the children follow and do the same as the parents. So if the children g-d forbid got Covid it’s on the parents. Ignorance. Smh.
    So now as much as I love my nieces and nephews I have to avoid seeing them and any family member who doesn’t wear a mask. I already felt quarantined in my life when I got sick. Now I feel I am further isolating myself. Anyone else having these issues with family? #COVID19 #mask #Immunocompromised #quarantined #Vaccine #RheumatoidArthritis #Fibromyalgia #ChronicIllness
