ASHBURN, Va. (WUSA) — Many of you have been lining up to get the seasonal flu shot. But there is one Ashburn woman who wants you to hear her story before you do.
Desiree Jennings is trapped in her body. Intellectually she’s all there, but her muscles are fighting each other. She’s been diagnosed with dystonia, an extremely rare and debilitating neurological disease.
She says after taking the seasonal flu shot she witnessed her body’s rapid decline. She doesn’t know what else it could be but she has serious questions about the seasonal flu shot. The Centers for Disease Control cannot comment on her case.
Desiree was a healthy 25-year-old up until two months ago, working at AOL and as a Redskins cheerleading ambassador.
But her world has now been turned upside down.
Desiree has trouble talking and speaks in a staccato rhythm.
She says, “It’s a battle every day because when I wake up I think it’s going to be normal, but then I’m quickly reminded that’s not going to be the case.”
