A conversation with Alex Mitchell
Today's guest is Alex Mitchell, a vaccine-induced immune thrombocytopenia and thrombosis survivor . (VITT) VITT is a blood disorder that is characterised by widespread blood clots, predominantly in atypical sites like the brain and lungs, in combination with low platelet counts after receiving the COVID-19 shot. It is theorised that VITT occurs via a platelet-targeted autoimmune reaction that occurs as the contents of the m-RNA jabs travel to the spleen.
VITT has resulted in Alex having a left leg above the knee amputation and has left him taking life long medications. Though the AstraZeneca vaccine, in his case, has taken so much of his health away, he still remains stronger than ever and has great hope for the future of humanity. Alex has become one of my good friends and even wrote the foreword to the "Calling Out The Shots" book. It was a pleasure having him as the first guest on this show.
We spoke about everything from nearly not making it in hospital to mental health during the pandemic. You will find Alex primarily on Twitter @ake230 6. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
