My Friends and Family Were Notified

Many of my friends and family members still feel the need to vaccinate their children or themselves despite my horror story. When this whole nightmare began with my baby's reactions to his vaccines I sent out mass emails almost daily on vaccine information. I also told them that I would be watching my son very closely for any long-term effects such as delays. Well, just yesterday I spread the word - "I TOLD YOU SO! My son has vaccine-induced autism and you have a detailed account from the beginning of how it happened - beginning with his scary vaccine reactions."

I just don't understand how people cannot be bothered researching or even reading what I give them. I even gave some of Neil Z. Miller's books as pre-baby shower gifts and none of the recipients read them! Are people really that brainwashed or really that friggin lazy? Nobody even mentioned vaccines to me while I was pregnant. I honestly had no clue at the time that they were dangerous. What I do know is that if just one person had mentioned it to me, I would have definitely looked into it.

This reminds me of a story that I was told the other day by the DAN doctor. He told me that he has a mother of 5 who is currently taking her 4 vaccine-injured children to him for treatment. Her 5th child died four hours after his vaccines and her other children become violently ill with their subsequent vaccines. The poor doctor couldn't understand why she is still vaccinating them. I said, "Doctor, there is a term for that. It is called being a 'sheeple'." He looked confused, but curious. I said, "This woman still feels the need to follow the herd". He smiled, but with a sad look on his face. You see, he cannot tell this woman not to vaccinate her children anymore. The AAP has put the fear into the doctors also. If he happens to tell her this, her child catches something like chickenpox (for which they have a vaccine for) and she misses work to tend to her sick child - she then could legally sue that doctor and win for lost wages and mental anguish. Yet, if he tells her to vaccinate and her child dies - she has no legal recourse and a 50% chance that her case will be dismissed in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program! Yet, the doctor is not liable in this case for any wrongdoing. Is that insane or what?

It's Official - My Baby Has Vaccine-Induced Autism

Early intervention visits my baby 1x per week. Last week, our regular therapist decided to bring another person along for input. I was told to be prepared for a possible Autism or PDD-NOS diagnosis at some point because there were some definite red flags. We are on a long waiting list for a comprehensive evaluation at a medical teaching facility in my state (possibly another 4 months from now).

Fast forward to today and it is official. My baby has Autism. We met for the first time today with a DAN doctor and he confirmed it - my son is definitely on the spectrum. He has dealt with enough Autistic children to know the difference. The funny thing is that this doctor wanted to start my son immediately on 2 things - milk thistle and DHA. He is already on both! This doctor will also be testing for everything that the pediatric neurologist is not - to include defective mitrochondria. After testing his blood and urine, I will then begin other supplements that were recommended.

The new/recent signs are as follows: my son has recently begun flapping his hands, lining his cars/trucks up and makes brief eye contact with people. This has been such a gradual process that I can totally understand why parents do not recognize the signs until after the MMR (the shot that does them in). My son hasn't had a vaccine in 15 months and he is still slipping backward! The doctor was totally amazed that I refused the shots that I did. He also agreed with me that I could have been dealing with something far worse had I not done what I did.

I am pretty confident that I will recover my son. There are so many amazing people in this world that I owe a great deal of gratitude. Had it not been for them, I never would have encountered any hope or instructions on "what to do" to prevent further damage. I also never would have thought that my son was reacting negatively to his vaccines had it not been for the internet. I probably would have kept vaccinating!!

One thing that people must understand is that a vaccine reaction is considered "normal" if many other people are experiencing it too. So, if the CDC okays arsenic for your child, your child dies along with many, many others - this would be considered a normal reaction because it frequently occurred. Sick, huh? The "top officials" at the AAP, CDC, and FDA all need to spend the rest of their lives behind bars where they belong.

What? Corruption in the FDA?

I guess these scientists can pretty much kiss their careers goodbye if their names are ever disclosed.
