Vaccines and GBS

Vaccines and gbs see Bob's Story ramgbs.wordpress.com and vaccines gone bad Bob Martin62123

I haven't heard of Bob's story but my GBS was due to the flu vaccine in May of 2010 and I am permanently disabled in a wheelchair, but maybe not I haven't given up yet lol. I will check out Bob and see if there are any similarities to my own story.

see ramgbs.wordpress.com and other links there also send me any information you have re the vaccine and even batch # etc Bob Martin at ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■ where are you located??

I am in San Diego CA. I received my flu shot in the conference room where I worked during lunch break. It had a bad effect on me almost immediately, I must have had dozens of Dr. appointments and trips to the Urgent Care the next few weeks before finally collapsing in my home not able to stand then being rushed to the Emergency Room. The shot I received was a seasonal flu shot. I don't know that much about it and never tried to sue anyone including my employer or the people who gave the free flu shot. I liked my employer, my job, the benefits and the ability to use those benefits due to this tragedy. However years later all my benefits have run out, my prospects of ever returning to work look slim, and because of this life is not good right now. -_____- I had no idea the federal government had a program to compensate those severely affected by vaccinations, and because it is 5 years later it is probably too late anyway. No one informed me about that existing, I wish I knew but I was paralyzed for 18 months and their cutoff is less than that and I couldn't move or speak so how fair is that, lol.

I had a plethora of odd symptoms between the time of the flu shot and the time I went to the E.R. and was paralyzed for almost 20 months, most strangely was blacking out/passing out at any given time at home at work then waking up bruised or cut on the ground from collapsing and falling. My Dr. did a lot of tests and found nothing. And I was given prednisone and some muscle relaxer pill thyat did nothing but help me gain weight. >_____<

So sorry to hear all this see if you can do anything after all these years through a lawyer and the dr who gave the shot and how you were diagnosed and what treated for who knows???? you need to be helped Bob.
