After a smallpox vaccination which I took in order to travel to China when it opened to tourism in the late 1970's, I developed severe mononucleosis and hepatis which rendered me bedridden for the better part of 6 months. Out of that I was diagnosed ME/CFIDS. Although previously robustly healthy with very few allergies, I now had migraines 4 days/week, had no immune system and seemed to catch everything even with minor exposure, was tired all the time, had a severe sleep disorder, etc. etc. I was allergic to over 100 common foods, and was now severely chemically sensitive and allergic to an untold number of things. I was disabled and had no idea what had happened to me. I was athletic before becoming ill, and a very wise dr. told me to keep moving every day, even if only a block. That helped me maintain some strength in an otherwise pitifully sick body. I was 29 when I was stricken. I knew it dated to the vaccination but there was no one to help me. During the 15 years of my disabling illness, I was single and constantly struggling to survive. My childbearing years disappeared into illness.
One of my passions in life has been working with dreams. I well knew that dreams can help us understand many things and in some cases work miracles. I am a psychotherapist, and knew my illness was all too real. It stole 15 years from me during the years I would have married and had children. I was lonely, sad and angry. In my anger and frustration, I said: "No more! I will dedicate all my dreams to learning the cause of this illness and to getting well." Although I would never commit suicide, I did not want to continue to live my life as a permanently very sick and disabled person.
Within a few months of dedicating my dreaming to finding my cure, I had identified the cause as a retrovirus (a word that appeared in a dream, not something I knew anything about), a colony of which had lodged in my brain stem, had been given some strong clues as to steps to take, and in a month of sometimes violent purging, the retrovirus released from my brain stem, traveled down my spinal column (causing great pain as it moved downwards), then there were weeks of projectile and regular vomiting then copious diarrhea as the retrovirus colony vacated my brain stem.
I was miraculously well again on my 45th birthday -- sadly too late for childbearing but in plenty of time to live a healthy, full life. I am now 65 and have had no recurrence of the problem. Some allergies have stayed with me, but overall I am in far better health and vitality than the majority of my peers. I eat healthfully and exercise 5-6 days a week, and rarely get ill. Many years later I learned from an article by Donald Scott in Nexus magazine of the bioengineered retrovirus patented by Dr. Lo at NIH and which he said was responsible, depending on the dose which the person got and where the colony lodged (usually in vaccines), for AIDS, ME/CFIDS, MS, lupus and other autoimmune diseases. He seemed to believe it was deliberate, not an accidental byproduct.
Thank the good Dr Mikovits for your work and bravery. I am sad for all they have taken from you. A well-known researcher was very interested years back in my miracle recovery, but as soon as he found out the root of my disease was a smallpox vaccine induced retrovirus, he backed off. I suppose because he depended on govt. and big Pharma $ for his research.
I am so grateful you are doing this work, untold lives have been ruined without accountability. Thank you, thank you. This must come to life.
