Social Workers Not Allowed To Make These Connections
(HorizonPost.com) – A licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) practicing in Oregon and Washington opened up about her experience regarding her employers’ vaccination mandate last fall. Like many locations in the country, the hospital where Angela Loerzel Swafford, 46, was and still is employed mandated the COVID-19 jab, according to The Epoch Times.
Swafford, who was nervous about getting the shot, had a lot of questions and concerns because she suffered from a venous malformation, a condition where her veins do not develop naturally, making her more at risk of developing blood clots and deep vein thrombosis.
Swafford was worried about losing the job she loved and was willing to do what it took to protect her patients. She reached out to several healthcare professionals to ask whether the vaccine would be right for her but claims that she was not received or taken care of well.
“I think there should be space that we can be curious and pause and ask questions,” she said, reportedly noting that her employer and health providers did not acknowledge any questions of her questions about the vaccine. “I feel that the physicians had a script and I was not heard and was kind of pushed through.”
She did take the Pfizer vaccine and a few hours after, she began to notice upper body pain and had difficulty charting her patients.
“Taking the exit to my house, I remember it felt like my face was exploding in pinpricks–like I had all of these sharp needle feelings all over my face,” she recalled. “My tongue, lips, and face felt swollen, my vision was blurred and I wasn’t processing information.”
“The biggest thing was my vision, confusion in my thinking, trying to walk with coordination and dizziness,” she went on. “I couldn’t figure things out.”
After some neurology psychiatry testing, it was determined that Swafford was one of the few to experience impaired “processing speed” and an “impaired ability to learn new information.”
“They found I’m not encoding new information–that my processing is really slow,” she explained.
Swafford is now working with medical professionals on a vaccine injury regimen to improve her condition, including fasting which promotes immune system homeostasis.
37,000 reported neurological symptoms through the Center for Disease Control’s Vaccine Adverse Reporting System (VAERS) as of October 2022.
