When the customer/loan portfolio of any bank is weighted heavily toward one industry, its fortunes will be more closely tied to the fortunes of that industry. The failure of such an institution will have painful consequences within the sector it serves, but is...

Danielle Baker was an active Registered Nurse for 20 years with a background in hospice and palliative care. She loved her job and had spent the last 17 years caring for her patients in hospice. In June of 2021, she was coerced into taking the COVID-19 “jab” after her former employer issued an email stating a July deadline if the employees wanted to maintain all of their benefits.
Having a family to care for, she couldn’t afford to lose her job, so she reluctantly took the Pfizer jabs. Within 2.5 weeks after her 2nd dose, she became completely disabled, suffering from severe neurological issues, demyelination of the spine, and receiving the diagnosis of transverse myelitis, which her doctor confirmed was due to the Pfizer jab.
Since that time, Danielle has been unable to work as she has difficulty completing even the simplest tasks, such as walking and self-care. She lives in constant suffering each day, never knowing the degree of difficulty she will face. She has three core physicians but has seen several other doctors in an attempt to find relief, to no avail. In fact, during her last hospital admission, doctors unfamiliar with her told her she has a psychological problem and suggested they order a psychiatric evaluation.
Knowing that no one filed a VAERS report on her behalf, Danielle filed her own. She sent the FDA an email explaining her situation to warn others what can happen after these shots, and to let the FDA know she was filing a VAERS report. After this email, she noticed her finalized report in the system had mysteriously disappeared. Is the FDA intentionally removing such claims of injury?
When you listen to this, you will hear courage and grace that surpasses my comprehension. This was a difficult episode for me, and as you listen, you’ll begin to hear and understand that.
Every week, I end my episodes in the same manner, and as I was trying to get through my outro, I finally broke. Danielle’s story is devastating, and my response to it was a visceral one. I considered editing it out, but ultimately decided against doing so. We are nurses, but we are human. We feel things, probably deeper than most. I left it in because it was raw and it was real.
There are moments in nursing that can absolutely break your heart. Even now, being removed from the bedside, I am not removed from my nurse’s heart. I hope I’ll always feel this way…I hope I will always feel so deeply and intensely, because it reminds me that I have the ability to share love just as deeply and intensely with others, and that is something that is needed so desperately in this cold and cruel world we live in. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve cried with a patient, prayed over a patient, or just held their hand when I knew there was nothing more I could do for them other than offer a small amount of comfort in their darkest and most vulnerable moments. This is the purest form of nursing.
Danielle is one of the first nurses to go on disability due to the COVID-19 jab in the state of Ohio and is also now on social security disability. She has an active worker’s compensation case against her former employer and hopes to become a trailblazer, opening the door for others in similar situations to seek the justice they deserve.

“…during her last hospital admission, doctors unfamiliar with her told her she has a psychological problem and suggested they order a psychiatric evaluation.”
For context, you need to understand how unusual this is. Over my 40+ year career in primary care, the rule is that patients with (what are to me, at least) obvious behaviorally driven symptoms that make no sense for any particular diagnosis that would explain everything are never told their problem are psychosomatic, but, rather, accumulate more and more diagnoses by multiple specialists to explain the symptoms that fall within their area of expertise. Shortness of breath? You must have asthma. Fatigue? You must have thyroid issues. Aches and pains? You have mild lupus or fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain? You have H pylori. Diarrhea? You have IBS. And so on and on. A dozen diagnoses from a dozen specialists, an incredible number of tests, often repeated multiple times although negative except clinically insignificant minor abnormalities, a full page of meds, most of which are sedating and add up to being overmedicated and sluggish, patients are far worse off. My best work through the years had been undiagnosing and stopping excessive, ineffective meds and explaining that the problem is driven by anxiety, which I can treat effectively, something that I think everyone before me even knew, but didn’t want to say, preferring instead to pass the patient on to yet another so-called expert.
And rarely along comes someone who simply doesn’t fit that pattern – no long, long history of symptoms, no behavioral red flags, with an abrupt onset of symptoms, often fortunately coincidental with a medication that can be stopped, but sometimes following an acute illness, a diagnostic misadventure, accident, or, as in this case, an immunization, and the same physicians who would never diagnose a psych problem in the obviously behaviorally challenged seemingly can’t wait to dismiss the patient who isn’t as crazy. It’s uncanny how backwards we get this.
Thank you for your very insightful comment. Sadly, this is so incredibly true.
