His story starts in the same place it almost ended, a hospital where doctors treated him for pneumonia in 2014. When I was being discharged, the nurse said, oh, hey, by the way, you need a flu shot. He says that flu shot nearly killed him, causing Guillain-Barré Syndrome. The pain was just massive. A disorder where his immune system attacked its own tissue, paralyzing him, forcing him to sit in a hospital bed for months, start rehab and then pay a pricey bill. Close to $1 million. All because he got a flu shot. There are side effects to vaccines that nobody knows about and I found out the hard way.
