In a dramatic five-minute phone call, the game of telephone with office staff has been ended.
My hematologist said that of course, he would have no problem writing my exemption letter. While vaccines are great and all, not everyone can have them and he agrees that it would be a bad idea for me. Of course, he could never prove exact causality, etc, etc. He recalled investigating hypercoagulability, the various tests, all of them being negative for any other reason. All of that being true, he agreed to write the letter.
I cannot describe the relief that I feel right now.
While the fight is over for me, personally, I know it is not over for every single healthcare provider in California who has had a reaction to the vaccines.
Anyone who had a reaction short of anaphylaxis that caused throat swelling (and only that), is guided by the CDC to receive the vaccine.
Cardiomyopathy? Get the booster.
Venous Sinus Thrombus? Get the booster.
Deep vein thrombosis? Get the booster.
Total body rash? Get the booster.
The CDC’s guidelines do not take into account the unique nature of people and their strange immune systems. The State of California’s Department of Public Health also does not take into account people’s conditions and previous reactions. California’s Board of Medicine is still creating an environment of fear for doctors who are willing to treat their patients as individuals. BoM is still coercing doctors to deny appropriate care and guidance to their patients for fear of losing their own careers.
The fight is not over.
But now I will still have an income to contribute to it.Published in
