Recently, in the last 6 months or so, I’ve been back under a doctor’s care. The doc I had after my stroke 6 years ago had moved away and a new doctor came in who outright told me that if I didn’t want to be on drugs then there wasn’t any reason for me to come see him. To his credit, I think he was trying to scare me for what he felt were good reasons. But, after much deliberation (prayer), I felt at peace to take him at his word and took a break from the medical world for a couple years.
Which, keep in mind…I’m not suggesting anyone else do the same. My decision was based on having gotten down to a normal weight range for my height, and having gotten my blood sugar down into normal range so that I was taken off diabetes medication. My blood pressure had followed suit. It was still high when I’d go to the doctor (hence his being alarmed by it), but it was low enough on a regular basis that I felt comfortable going off of meds and using herbs alone to help control it. Which I did successfully for a time.
But, like I said, in the last few months, I was having trouble controlling my bp with herbs. It kept inexplicably climbing, and so I came to the point where I knew I needed intervention, and the Lord allowed me to have peace about it and to find his choice for a doctor for me.
Anyway, I went back on the same blood pressure medications I was on right after the stroke, but after a few weeks it was obvious I needed something stronger. So I was put on a med that “many people are on” and “have no trouble with”. I was nervous about changing prescriptions with my medical history (what I believe caused my stroke), but there was nothing to do but try. I was between a rock and a hard place, but God was with me and was leading the process. I admitted my fear, but stated my trust to him, and I took the pill before bed one night.
The next morning, I woke and was going about my normal routine when I realized my right side was numb. My foot, my hand, my face. Since it was all on one side, my immediate thought was, of course, ‘stroke’. Thankfully it never got worse than that and lessened throughout the day, and was completely gone over a couple days.
I called the doc and told them what happened and that I wasn’t going to take that particular med again. So I was prescribed another. I had to wait a few days before I was brave enough to take it. Happily, the new med jived with my system and I didn’t have any reaction to it.
I’m not glad it happened, but it does lend a lot of credibility to my suspicions that my stroke was caused by something other than the norm. Looking back over the years, there’ve been other unexplained incidences in my life too that were connected to prescription drugs. So, I believe more than ever that my stroke was most likely caused by a reaction to the dental work (the medications/chemicals used) which I’d had done just prior to my stroke.
So… what does that have to do with anything? Much in relation to the current medical events of our time. Namely the new Covid vaccine.
It’s not my desire to tell anybody what they should or shouldn’t do. That’s none of my business, but I do feel like I’m supposed to stand up and give my story and offer some thoughts. Especially to those who are my Christian brothers and sisters.
Prescription drug injury is real. It not only happened to me (more than once), but to others in our family as well. And not just us. Television is filled with dozens of big pharma commercials about side effects. Why..? Because prescription drug injury is real, and they know it, and they don’t want sued. There’s a reason for all the lawyer commercials too. Medical injury is real.
Vaccine injury is the exact same deal. It’s real just like prescription drug injury is real. Contrary to popular opinion, most people don’t just arbitrarily go around hating on medicine and vaccines…. It’s generally because they or someone they know has suffered injury from them. Like my story.
I can’t tell you what you should do; whether to take or not take the Covid vaccine. But I can tell you that you can sort it out with God. He will listen. He will help you. That’s especially true if you’re one of his children. If you’re in doubt, then don’t. Wait til you hear him. That’s always a good motto from which to live out from.
