While I don't currently reside in Missouri, it is the place I grew up, and the place I call home. I've served HONORABLY for 14 years in the military and planned to finish to retirement. I've deployed multiple times to Afghanistan and Iraq, spent years of my life in those countries and sacrificed my body for America.
I never dreamed we would come to this junction in our country that you had to choose between giving up your religious, personal and health freedoms in order to keep your job and livelihood but here we are.
I have refused the military wide mandate and am facing dishonorable discharge like I'm a felon who has committed a crime. I will lose all benefits that I have rightly earned. I have a have a wife and children whom I am the sole provider of income for, we have put our faith in God to carry us as we go forth into the unknown future of our lives.
Many people are heedlessly accepting this attack on freedom in FEAR of the governments wrath. If Americans do not put their foot down and stand up for their rights at this time in history then we will fail and the America we knew yesterday won't be what our children will inherit tomorrow.
My ENTIRE life I wanted to be a Navy SEAL and I shed blood and tears to get where I am, I am willingly casting my Trident aside in the face of tyranny and I pray it gives others who have invested less in their profession the courage to do the same. If not now then when? If not you then who else?

Being a nurse is about being an advocate for those under your care.  It's a calling. Pretty simple really.  I've done it for over 20 years.  I most likely learned the job description in day one of nursing school.  We treat everyone equally.  With the same amount of empathy.  I'm now advocating for myself as I'm so very much against medical mandates.  I've been forced out of my job because of it.  However, I'm hopeful for a change in the system. And I'm grateful to see God as the common theme amongst the community of people that are also against it.  It's been very eye-opening.  And beautiful at the same time.  It's where 2 or 3 gather....

The minute I saw people taken away from their loved one's and told they couldn't have visitors and watched the elderly die alone without the healing spiritual energy they so very much needed, I knew that none of this was from God.  Coercion had become the common theme that I witnessed time and time again.  The enemy has had his hands in all things covid!  But, I've since learned that it is actually another one of God's great resets.  To teach us how to love again.  To get us back on the straight and narrow.  Blessings are abounding!   

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world." - John 16: 33

 A co-worker’s brother was an athlete all his life. Middle aged. These folks are big believers in the vaccine. He was short of breath and made his way to the ED. He was in a rapid heart rate and his lungs had PEs. He is now under the care of a cardiologist. They are finally admitting it is vaccine related.

My co-worker got the vaccine and proceeded to be somewhat of a bully for those who did not have it. Within weeks she was passing out, dizzy, and had made 4 ED visits. Also diagnosed with something called COVID arm. She refused to admit it was vaccine related. She is now on medication for her heart rate and is finally admitting it is vaccine related. It is uncertain if/when she will get off this medication.

My co-worker’s daughter got the vaccine when it was first available. She is a medical student and believed everyone should get it. She has had problems since. Swollen lymph nodes, breast issues, has had a couple CT scans and multiple tests and have to go for another soon! They have no answers. My answer is vaccine injury. She was previously healthy with NO past history of these issues.

One of my co-workers got the vaccine. She has had swollen lymph nodes since and regrets getting it!

My co-worker did NOT want to get the vaccine! She was adamant against it. This week she “panicked” and went to get it. She HAD COVID earlier this year and has natural antibodies. My heart broke for her when she told me and said she feels like she was “violated and raped.” It is DISGUSTING that people are being coerced by being threatened with their livelihoods. She was so upset during the vaccination, she was hysterical. How dare that clinician give someone a shot who was hysterically crying and stating “I don’t want this!”

The last date I was very ill was December 2019.  It took a month to get rid of the cough and no medicine from my doctor. Covid has been all around me and my family.   Vaccinated and not vaccinated are catching covid. I’m mandated to get vaccinated and is required for the people working at home.   I’m very healthy and never take vaccines.  I am letting my work fire me.  I have a micro chip on my badge and I hate that too.

I am struggling so bad with this mandate. I love the clinic I work for, love the manager I work for, and never thought it would come down to this. I recently had covid, within a month ago. Did well at home with extra vitamin C and zinc. What happened to natural, built up immunity or atleast waiting 90 days?! Now they are not only mandating the covid vaccine but we are suppose to get the flu vaccine in the same time frame? I have history of a possible blood clot breaking up, unable to take estrogen containing BC because of it. The thoughts of a vaccine having the possibility of making that worse scares me. My manager knows my stance on the vaccine and my reasoning so I feel like that is making things so much more awkward. I love taking care of my patients but can't risk my own health and beliefs at this point for a vaccine. But, in turn, its risking the career I worked so hard for ?!?!

I want to give some perspective to those of you who don’t work in the healthcare setting. Some of you are scoffing and judging from afar…”I don’t know what the big deal is”, and “why would you quit over a shot?” Healthcare has morphed into an ugly beast over the last 15 years. An astonishing decline the last 18 months. As a nurse, part of my role is to FIERCELY DEFEND AND ADVOCATE for my patients’ rights to CHOOSE for themselves what is and what is not appropriate for them. My role is to respect and support their personal medical decisions (with the exception of murder by abortion). Here we are in psychotic 2021, and I find myself without the same rights. It’s insanity! Wrong on so many levels.
I stood my ground with thousands of others at Cox, and for that I am proud. Because we stood our ground and chose our FREEDOM over tyrannical policies, the hospital stood to lose THOUSANDS of employees. They have now approved almost all exemptions that were filed.
But I’m not a fool. They’re not finished. They’ll be coming for us eventually. This was an act of desperation. I can imagine them sitting at their meeting…someone says “shit, I thought they’d just lay down and take it”.
The first two pictures are my resignation letter. Read them and really consider my heart. It’s hurt, bruised, bullied, calloused, judged, angry, devastated, betrayed, appalled!!!!
The third is the cold response from my manager. Void of any empathy-she’s just concerned with the schedule. No I’m sorry this is happening to you, kiss my ass, or fuck off. NOTHING. FIFTEEN YEARS to this department and I get NOTHING!!!!
Now, on to Tyrant Edwards’ response. Nothing genuine here. Somehow my 15 years gets turned into 28?! Did you even read it, Steve?!?!?!?!?! I would guess there was a lot of copying and pasting involved with his “compassionate” response. REMEMBER you’ve shown us your true colors…..and they all add up to SHIT BROWN.
What about:
1. the times you told your community to shut up, blaming deaths on the unvaccinated and those encouraging alternate treatments
2. The time you said vaccination status is directly related to a person’s education level?????
3. When you said the “evangelicals and conservatives” are the ones not getting vaccinated!!!!
And lastly, one of many disgusting propaganda posters I have to see on a daily basis. It’s exhausting. We’re overworked, under appreciated, cattle lined up for the slaughter. Numbers in a computer.
THIS IS WHY PEOPLE ARE LEAVING. This validates my decision to leave. Why do I want to hang around and give my blood, sweat and tears to an organization who clearly doesn’t give a shit about me?!

Hello,
My dear friend and colleague has recently been infected with Covid-19 and their health deteriorated rapidly.
The first trip to the Doctor and they were prescribed an antibiotic and steroid (seriously).

Now my friend is not ignorant when it comes to the medical malpractice that's being carried out on a daily basis in regards to this virus, and asked the Doctor for Ivermectin. The Doctor said he would prescribe it as a last resort but unfortunately none of the big pharmacies around here would fill the prescription.
Keep in mind all this happened before I was aware of the situation with my colleague. Once I found out what was going on, I immediately recommended they start taking 25mg elemental zinc, 500 mg quercetin, 1000mg C and 5000 D3, until I could find a way to get Ivermectin.

Before they started taking this regimen, they're oxygen level dropped all the way down to 85 and they were almost ready to give up and go back to the hospital were they most likely would be put on a ventilator and given a lethal dose of Remdesivir like so many other unfortunate souls who are unaware of the dangers of going to the hospital with this virus.

Well thanks to a wonderful RN friend, I was given some great advice on how to obtain Ivermectin. The secret is to find a small local pharmacy that's not connected to the big chains. You probably won't be able to use insurance but it doesn't matter because Ivermectin is $5 per tablet and it works!

I am happy to report that after only two doses of Ivermectin, my colleague's oxygen levels are back to normal and they are finally sleeping after six days of no sleep.
I really do believe we saved my colleague's life.
Share this information with whomever needs it.
God bless

I have been an LPN w/ Mercy StL Since 11/10/19 w/7 mos as an agency Nurse prior to that. I only have 14 wks of my RN Bridge program left, starting in 25 days. My clinicals are also scheduled through Mercy Washington. My first Religious exemption was denied d/t ‘Not meeting the criteria for a Rel. exemption.’ My appeal is currently pending . Mercy is ALso NOT allowing ‘Students’ to have any exemptions. If I am not able to complete my education, dreams are lost, my scholarship may have to be paid back and a promise to my late fiancé and to God..unable to be achieved! This mandate is costing me my job, which I love, the freedom to become a travel Nurse and the means to buy property, build my dream home and live off grid and lastly….Costing immense mental anguish. #Enoughisenough #Unitedwestand #Stopthemandate #MyChoice

I've spent my whole life working to one goal...become a nurse. I have sacrificed so much. Now I might have to look at alternative careers because I am being forced to take a shot I don't want. Is there any other career where you are forced to sit in a chair, let someone inject you with a needle and risk some kind of "serious adverse reaction" occurring? The military is the only thing I can even think of that comes close to this. I have devoted the last 5 years of my life to patients and co-workers I love. I have put myself tens of thousands of dollars in debt, for what?! For it all to come down to this? In a time when we don't have enough nurses, we are fighting a virus we don't yet know enough about. You can't tell me the long term effects of the virus itself and I've chosen to take the risk of exposure to continue caring for those in need. Now you want to forcefully make me take a shot that could cause me to have any world of reactions that won't even prevent me from getting the virus. If I have another child can you tell me if there will be long term effects? If I develop a "serious adverse reaction" that causes me to be hospitalized will you care for my family? If I'm one of the people that suffers a really awful side effect will you be there for me? Will I sit in a waiting room for hours upon hours waiting for care instead of providing it? This is my body. This is my choice. I'm so heartbroken that something I have sacrificed so much for and worked so hard on, I am now questioning. I was set to finish my bachelor's degree in a few months and now I'm probably going to postpone my next semester, why add the additional debt if I'm not going to be doing this anymore? You can't make me put something in my body that I don't want. I'm not anti-vaccine. My children are vaccinated. I'm vaccinated. This is a whole other story. There are too many unknowns. I'm going to be praying for guidance. Praying for patients. Praying for my co-workers, because this is only going to make things worse when more people leave the field. You don't have to agree. My best friend got the covid vaccine. I believe in times like this it is a personal choice to accept your own risks. I've chosen mine, you have the right to choose yours. One of my first posts after my local mandate rolled out......Look at where we are now!! Taking a stand, and I am finishing that Bachelor's degree.

Working in Healthcare I've seen 3 cases in one week of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome following the jab.  All with extensive arterial clots and other clots within the body.  Our vascular surgeon is unable to take these patients to surgery due to the fact there is a huge risk of them clotting on the surgical table. When you look up this particular disorder its supposedly very rare.  Causes the body to create clots against its own organs and vessels.   All these patients were post shot.

My nursing career spans more than two decades with strong experience that I love sharing with the next generation of nurses. I knew from my scientific background there are many lies in the narrative and lifesaving medications are being withheld from our patients afflicted with Covid. I trust science, but not the “scientists”. I survived Covid and know that a titer provides stronger indication of immunity than a vaccine card ever could. I will retire from nursing soon as a vaccine is mandated for my position. I will be one more nurse leaving the profession because I choose to protect my health over obeying this mandate.

Mom was a nurse for 30 years. If nurses don't trust the vaccine, for whatever reason, I trust the nurses.

 I work in a busy FP clinic for a large hospital in the state.  I have been told that I must get the jab by Oct 15th or I will no longer have a job.  I actually had COVID in early August this year but natural immunity isn't good enough.  The jab simply isn't an option so I plan to request a religious exemption.  Someone called from the hospital on Friday and I was told that if it is approved, I will have to get weekly NP swabs for PCR tests and wear a mask forever.  I'm so frustrated.  I do not think the repeated NP swabs are necessary (I've had the virus) and the mask will simply label me.  This is all so wrong.
