Gardasil: If I Had Only Known… by Wendy Stec


Gardasil: If I had only known…
By Wendy Stec, Beaverton Oregon
Sane Vax,   8 December 2013

Sadly, our story of pain, adversity, and medical mysteries did not begin with the Gardasil vaccine.  My 18 year old Autistic daughter Jenni has struggled with pain and challenges from day one.
As a newborn, she was extremely irritable and diagnosed with colic.  As an infant, she was highly sensitive to noises and continued to suffer with symptoms of colic.  Before her first birthday, Jennifer had already begun occupational and physical therapy for fine and gross motor delays and low muscle tone.  One month before her first birthday, she suffered a grand mal seizure and would continue to have several more grand mal seizures over the course of the next two months.  After a year of anti-seizure medication, and significant developmental delay, Jennifer was weaned off the medication and would only suffer two more grand mal seizure at ages 3 and 9.  Seizures, developmental delay, constant irritability, and sensory defensiveness were just the beginning of what would be a lifetime of challenges.
Does this sound like a person who should be offered a highly toxic vaccine for HPV?
If I had known that a series of three Gardasil shots we began in January of 2009 and ended in September of 2009 would add more pain, misery, and potentially dangerous side effects, I would never had allowed the injections.
I had always kept my children up to date with their vaccines and trusted that our doctor wouldn’t suggest anything that could have a negative effect on my daughter’s already fragile system.  In my opinion, the medical staff should have been aware of the adverse reactions that many girls were experiencing. I believe they should have known my daughter’s history of seizures showed she should have never been offered the vaccine.
Before this doctor’s visit, I had never heard of Gardasil and had no reason to suspect any problems.
Since October of 2009, Jennifer has been a professional patient.  Here is a list of her symptoms:
  • chronic low grade fever
  • headaches ( mostly sharp pain on one side)
  • nausea
  • abdominal pains
  • dizziness
  • blurred vision
  • heart problems (heart racing, “hearing her pulse in her head”)
  • leg pains/tingling
  • knee/joint problems
  • fatigue
  • vaginal irritations and itching
Visits to specialists and return visits to our primary care were a regular part of our monthly routine for several years.  Jennifer is never well!  Constantly fatigued, dizzy, nauseous, confused, and feels hopeless that she will never feel better.  She’s dealt with episodes of high anxiety and fears because of her heart rate and unexplainable sensations such as “popping” in her head and body.
Prior to 2009, Jennifer was rarely sick, and her visits to a doctor were few and far between.  All of her tests return normal results!  Her life is anything but normal.
Jennifer had an episode the year after Gardasil where she “blacked out” for a few seconds and fell backwards, injuring her knee and preventing her from walking without pain ever since.
She’s also had times where she says she feels like her eyes are rolling back into her head and that she feels “strange”.  One of the biggest challenges with Jennifer’s autism, is that she doesn’t report her symptoms very well and I have to question her thoroughly to understand exactly what she is feeling.
Looking back, I feel horrible about her first year of suffering because I didn’t realize how bad her pain was and thought she was just being extra sensitive.
For me, the hardest thing to accept is that I am to blame for allowing this vaccine to enter her body.  I should have known more, I should have asked more questions, I should have been given more information.
When Jennifer is feeling scared, or just laying in bed dealing with a headache, or stomach problems, I often join her and snuggle in close and tell her how sorry I am that she’s in pain, and that I’ll never stop trying to find a way to make her feel better.
I also tell her that we’re helping others now by warning them of the dangers of Gardasil and that hopefully we can save them from going through the same pain and suffering.

Thank you for sharing my daughter's experience. Several years of her life have been stolen by the adverse reactions to this vaccine and it infuriates me that the medical community calls her symptoms a coincidence. I don't believe I'll ever get over the regret I feel for not learning more before I allowed this vaccine. Sharing her story and our experience is one way I can find peace. I'll continue to be her healthcare advocate and learn more about proper nutrition and natural methods of immune boosting. This should be everyone's norm...hopefully others will learn from my mistake.

Blessings to Jenni and prayers for her recovery. Deep gratitude to Wendy her mother who despite her struggling to help her suffering daughter is using her energy to warn others about this vaccine.

Wendy wishes that more information should have been given. The problem is that adequate information cannot be given because there is very little known about this vaccine.

Here are some of the questions for which neither the Gardasil manufacturer nor other promoters including health authorities and doctors are able to provide satisfactorily documented answers.

Whether Gardasil prevents cancer, necessity for boosters, whether it increases the risk of cancer due to the ingredients, whether there is increased risk of cancer due to the strains which are removed being replaced by more carcinogenic ones, whether there is increased risk of cancer due to the unexpected discovery by an independent laboratory of aluminium bound recombinant HPV DNA, whether Gardasil vaccinated may donate blood without the aluminium bound recombinant HPV DNA causing serious health consequences for the recipient, whether there is increased risk of autoimmune disorders due to the recombinant HPV DNA, if cervical cancer is caused by HPV or if there must be a necessary additional factor for this to occur, if HPV is necessarily an infection transmitted by sexual intercourse, whether the vaccine causes genotoxicity, whether it targets the relevant virus strains in different demographics, whether the strains change in the course of time, adverse events due to concomitant administration with other vaccines, the true numbers and extent of serious adverse events, long term serious side effects, what the results would be if a true placebo had been used in all the clinical trials, what the results of clinical trials would be if Merck had not used their own exclusion criteria, whether there is increased risk of blood clots with or without hormonal contraceptives, whether there is an increased risk of brain damage, consequences of “bridging” - the extrapolation of study results from one group to another, potentially serious consequences if the vaccine is not thoroughly shaken, whether the vaccine will increase the risk of infertility due to polysorbate, whether polysorbate is carcinogenic, health consequences due to the presence of the combination of polysorbate and l-histidine, whether aluminium adjuvant is safe, consequences due to the presence sodium borate (borax), whether the vaccine will increase the risk of miscarriages, stillbirths or babies born with anomalies, whether Gardasil is excreted in human milk, the complete list of ingredients - whether possible benefits outweigh the risks.

Hello Mindano:

Yes and thank you for your comment. I hope all that visit my blog and read Jenni's story will send her their prayers and good wishes.

My best wishes to you also,

Hello Wendy:

I am honored that you visited my blog and commented.

Please do not beat yourself over the head about what happened to your dear Jenni. How could you have known?

I applaud you for getting her story out so that others can hear of her ordeal and perhaps avoid the possibility og this happening to them also.

Tip: Study on detoxes. There are ways to get heavy metals out and also to increase immune defense.

As you know there will be little help frrom the ones who helped to damaged her. It's common sense that the ones who did the damage will not be able to help her.

There are many things that you can do yourself.

Now, I will get off my soap box and wish you and Jenni all the best in all future endeavors.

My very best wishes,
