On March 28, 2021, Sheila Bath received the Johnson & Johnson covid-19 vaccine, despite having a history of autoimmune issues. Fearing she would lose her job, she reluctantly complied with the one-dose jab. Initially, she felt a burning sensation in her legs and spine, and numbness in her feet. “My legs were burning from my ankle all the way up to my lower spine on both sides. Burning, burning, burning,” Bath said. “My feet were numb. It was burning out the nerves in my legs and in my spine.”
She later found out that the injection she received came from the Baltimore Emergent BioSolutions manufacturing plant, which was later shut down due to regulatory issues.
On April 11, 2021, the vaccine injuries worsened. She reported “terrible bruising” on her extremities, and her vision went bad. She developed cysts on her kidneys and gallstones in her bladder. She gained 20 pounds of water weight. She suffered from muscle spasms, calf cramps, dry mouth, depression and ultimately lost her ability to walk. These severe symptoms dragged on for two months. Deep down, Bath knew what had triggered the symptoms, but her doctors would not listen to her.
“I didn’t know what Guillain-Barré was, but it’s a very well-known thing that you have to go directly to the hospital. And [my neurologist] could have sent me directly to the hospital. The neurologist neglected to follow the protocol of getting me into hospital when they could have cured it.”
But her neurologist was arrogant and dismissed her symptoms, prolonging her agony. On three occasions, the neurologist sent Mrs. Bath home, misdiagnosing her with age-related neuropathy. He continued to tell her “there’s nothing wrong with you,” while dismissing her from necessary medical care.
“Three times I went back to him and he sent me home,” she said, telling her, “There’s nothing wrong with you. You’ve got neuropathy because you’re older.”
Before the vaccine, Bath was able to work 10-12 hours a day. Her previous autoimmune conditions had been in remission for twenty years, and she was healthy. After the vaccine, she was debilitated and unable to work. However, the neurologist refused to put her on disability, plunging her into poverty.
When she went to see her doctor, he would not listen to her, either. When she brought up the covid-19 vaccine, he grew angry. “He practically kicked me out of the office,” she said. Things only got worse from there.
One year later, Mrs. Bath developed partial digestive paralysis. Doctors diagnosed her with Crohn’s disease, which is a type of inflammatory bowel disorder. When she contested the diagnosis and said she was experiencing paralysis from the covid-19 vaccine, the doctors “chided and yelled at” her. She was constantly reprimanded for suggesting her health problems were related to the covid-19 vaccine.
Mrs. Bath did not receive a proper diagnosis and did not receive the care she deserved… until she met with a naturopathic doctor.
“I walked in, he took one look at me and he said, ‘I know what you got.’ [The] first time I saw him, he says, ‘you’ve got paralysis in your spine and in your legs. Did you take the [Johnson & Johnson vaccine] or what other one?’
The naturopathic doctor offered a homeopathic antidote for peristalsis. For the first time, Mrs. Bath felt like someone was listening to her and being honest about the cause of her health problems. She said the antidote helped save her life. When she reported her progress to her cardiologist, she got reprimanded again. “She started screaming at me, this nice, gentle woman who isn’t even connected to the vaccine,” said Bath.
Bath eventually discovered the Vaccine Injury/Side Effects Support Group, and found out that doctors around the world have been misleading and harming people, sometimes leading to hospitalization and wrongful death.
She has recently completed a life coach trauma healing certification and hopes to help others. “My assignment is helping people get as better as possible, and I’m getting that extra certification for trauma because we’ve all been traumatized for the last five or six years,” she said. “And to add to that … my two majors now are helping people with Crohn’s disease, but mostly with the vaccine injuries … those are my two goals.”
