This meme recently caught a second wind over on my old facebook page, Autism Wars. People are sharing it. Good. I hope it makes some think.
Here is the story behind the moment the sentence “Vaccines are the leading cause of coincidence in the United States.” popped into my head. I was reading “Unraveling the Mystery of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder” by Karen Seroussi, and she mentions how “fish” was her son’s last word, because there was an aquarium in the waiting room at the doctors office when she took him for his MMR. I about fell off my chair. Me Too. Gavin Too. “ishies” was his last word… because there was an aquarium in the waiting room at the doctors office when I took him for his MMR. I wondered how many moms had that same story.
I laughed to myself when I pictured the medical community saying, “Tapping on fish tanks and saying “Fish”” is linked to autism! Get rid of your fish tanks!!
I thought about all the other “coincidences” that all our kids have in common. The ear infections, the gut trouble, the eczema, the timing of the regression… All, ‘coincidentally’ following vaccines. And there it was… vaccines! Vaccines are to blame for the epidemic rise in coincidence in this country!
Insert: *eye roll*
You know, true scientific method doesn’t ignore even the smallest of coincidence. It studies it. Our CDC did study it… and they found that MMR vaccine was linked to an increase in Autism in black boys and individuals with isolated autism (which, is pretty much all our kids). And then they reworked those numbers to make it go away. Don’t believe me? Go see Vaxxed.
Don’t stay misinformed. You don’t have to. Fish tanks in doctors offices don’t cause autism. Vaccines can, however, and vaccines do. You have to look at what is biologically plausible. You have to understand that autism isn’t a “thing” in and of itself. It’s a label slapped on a box that holds a list of symptoms. What causes all those symptoms? Start here, 124 studies that support the vaccine/autism connection.
Why do you hate your son?
I get asked that a lot, I’m guessing they are all from the ND crowd.
Don’t know what ND is? They are the people who think that autism is nothing but a bit of Neurological Diversity. And that is all I am going to say about that.
Apparently, not settling into a life where you allow your “autistic” child to suffer, means that you hate your child. If you want to “cure” autism, you hate your child. If you want your child to be healthy, you hate them.
It’s broken records with these people… I tell them often that if my son had the ability to express himself like these NDs did, I wouldn’t be here. But he can’t. His “autism” is not their autism. I’d like to see them spend a couple days with him to help expand their definition of “autism”. They shove “spectrum” down our throats, yet they don’t want to acknowledge the kids at the dark, scary end of the spectrum.
YOU, ND crowd… YOU hate my son. YOU ignore his pain. YOU want the world to believe that the only autism is YOUR autism, and fuck those kids who self injure, who are 20 and still in diapers, who have to wear helmets because they bash their own heads in. YOU choose to ignore their pain.
[Be sure to watch the video at the end. We all need to keep laughing. It’s important. We’d lose our minds otherwise.]
I know we really shouldn’t feed the trolls, but frankly I felt like I needed a link to post to them instead of my usual image which is:
So why not feed them a little knowledge. Not sure it’s possible with these idiots, but if I save one moron… well… Then there is only about 7 billion more to go.
Since you all appear to be too fucking lazy to read the press release, allow me to copy and paste for you.
“I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”
Is that simple enough for you? Hey Snopes, It’s NOT “Probably False” anymore. [Update: Now listed as ‘mixed’ on Snopes. Of course it’s funny that the ‘mix’ comes from them quoting that douche on ‘Science Blogs’ *eye roll*]
[Second UPDATE: It now reads FALSE. WTF are they smoking? –Read this iReport about it]
Wrap your head around the fact that his lawyer ALLOWED him to SAY that. While the Press Release does reek of ‘lawyered-up’ you have to see it for what it is –for what his lawyer actually allowed to be said. You realize what lawyers do right? Trust me, I once went to law school for a whole year and then dropped out. (Thanks Autism! –and trust me, you learn everything in the first year. The last two are just hazing and profit.)
I posted this picture to Anderson Cooper with a message that this was a Before and After MMR photo. To LOOK into my sons eyes. I get this reply:
Here is the photo I posted, you’ve seen it before:
Ok, twatrocket, let me explain something to you… 1. I know my kid is beautiful. He has my genes. I’m fucking smoking hot. Thanks. But, since you are not being sincere and mean this as a troll, I shall explain some more.
2. If you can’t see the OBVIOUS neurological deficits in this picture, let me break it down for you –as a portrait photographer (Yes, I’ve done every job at least once.) Every kid can have a bad day. But I could always get a kid to smile. Even my toughest customers. I once did a hand stand while making ape noises to get a kid to smile.
That picture on the left is my son at 15 months. He was an easy smile’r. A couple days after that first photo he got his MMR and DTaP, we injected him with neurotoxins. The second photo was taken at 18 months of age. We worked hard just to get him to look at the camera. Just to look at us. He was more interested in that block in his hand. The block he kept flipping over and over and staring at. Hand stand, ape noises… Cookies as bribes… lots of tears. And that blank stare was the best one we got.
I looked over a lot of my snap shots from this time period. Before and After. Before? Lots of happy smiles and eye contact with the camera. AFTER? ALWAYS. ALWAYS the same fucking pose. The thumb in his mouth –he’d hook his thumb behind his front teeth to put pressure on the roof of his mouth. He wasn’t actually sucking his thumb. It’s a soothing pressure point. And he’d rub his nose with his finger. Again, soothing. Instinctual. At 18 he still does it. Often when we are out in public and the sensory stimulation is too much.
I put together a little collage last night:
Yes, his downward spiral began with the Hep B at birth. But he was still THERE. He still had language. He’d still look you in the eye and smile, respond to you. But for a couple months after his 15 month shots, that bottom row… All the photos of him look the same. That is not an energetic, happy toddler. That is a sick child. Lacking energy, lacking language, lacking any sort of connection to his environment. That is a child suffering from an acute insult to his body and brain. Line this up with his MTHFR gene mutations and it all makes perfect sense. Google it trolls, I am not doing any more fucking homework for you.
I have videos too. They are too hard to watch. Before and After. Maybe someday.
I am college educated with a genius IQ (just bragging). I am not an idiot. (Don’t let my typo’s fool you). But they duped me. They did. [Yes, I know typo’s is a typo. It’s funny. Trust me.]
I am one of the most skeptical people in the world. Yet, I can admit, I was once brain washed by the Church of Science. I believed what Doctors told me, because they went to school after all. I was you–the mere “Useful Idiot Troll”. I believed that the CDC and FDA really did work for the people. But then I decided to read for myself instead of believing what authority figures told me. Guess what? They work for profit, not for the people. Vaccines do injure. More than the 1-in-a-million that they love to throw at you. It’s biologically plausible and probable. It’s OK that you were duped. It happens. Please read a book or two on your own. Now, if you are a troll-for-hire getting paid to do this… well… I refer you to the first photo in this post.
If you are waiting for the mainstream media to cover this, like one person told me, then you really have no idea how this world works. Hint: Money.
The information is out there for you. Just waiting to be read. You DON’T need some pretty face behind a news desk to tell you what to believe.
For those of you who look at a photo of my child and tell me “what’s what” –tell me that I don’t know what happened to my own child. Even though MEDICAL doctors have since looked over his records and told me that YES, he most likely DID suffer encephalitis with his first Hep B. Those of you who STILL want to tell me that you know my child better than I do, better than his doctors do:
And the rest of you…
–‘Vaccines don’t cause Autism, they took the mercury out of the MMR! And besides Dr. Wakefield lied!’
–‘Vaccines don’t cause autism, they studied that and they are safe.’
And as a general ‘last word’ to any other fucking stupid thing you manage to say… (I actually saw one write, “If this proves to be true, those crazy anti-vaxxers will have to admit that this study means it only related to an increase in black boys and not everyone.” *facepalm* DO THEY LISTEN TO THEMSELVES??) Anyway, in general:
Born Healthy and Happy. Day 1 Hep B. Immediate reaction. He started vomiting up all his food, screaming and crying for days (encephalitis symptom), and was soon covered in full body eczema (sign of a newly developed food allergy –just add aluminum to create an allergy response in anyone. Ask any ‘scientist’ –that is how they induce allergies in lab mice. Inject the desired allergen with aluminum. And it’s in your vaccines.)
Oh, he fought like hell after each round of vaccines –which in 96-98 consisted of OPV, not IPV and DTP not the ‘safer’ (safer, not safe) DTaP.
He was with my parents when he got his 4 month shots and my mom says she’s never heard a baby moan like that in her life. At 6 months he got his shots and spiked a 106 fever –which I didn’t know at the time was indicative of poisoning.
He didn’t have another shot until 15 months. He got his MMR and first DTaP –the DTaP was still laden with mercury. Here is a before and after. The first pic is his 15 mo portrait. Done before the shots. Three months later, the next pic, his 18 month photo. We played hell just getting him to look near the camera. He cried the whole time. “He’s not usually like this” I said.
He was so obviously autistic right after that 15 month round of vaccines. His last words were spoken in the doctors office that day before he went for his shots. “Ishies” for ‘fishies’ as he tapped on the aquarium glass. Funny coincidence… I am not the ONLY autism mom with that story. I know of one other mom who remembers her son’s last word as ‘fish’ –right before he was marched to his doom via vaccination.
Coincidence? Vaccines seem to be the leading cause of coincidence in this country.
So here you go CDC. Here is one of the lives you have ruined with your criminal activity. Your LIES. He has many of the MTHFR gene mutations suspected in association with autism. You could have been studying that for the past 15-20 years. Preventing this epidemic.
Friends of Jane and Autism Wars, I want your photos and stories to share here on the blog and in an album I am starting on the FaceBook pages. Contact me: email@example.com or thru FB. I would just need a couple paragraphs on the vaccine injury timeline and a couple photos. Before and After would be great.
This ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, gave me an idea for one for Autism.
For the Autism Scrub Bucket Challenge you grab your scrub bucket, gloves and non-toxic cleaning supplies and go to the home of someone with an autistic child who fecal smears and you help scrub their walls and floors… and furniture… and light fixtures.
When you are done, Never EVER say, “I don’t know how you do it!” No!!! Replace that thought with the act of giving them a $50 on your way out the door. Post your videos!! I nominate ALL OF YOU. #AutismScrubBucketChallenge
UPDATE: So, I have been getting serious inquires from people about this and a lot of hits on it from search engines. I did this a bit tongue-in-cheek –I have a twisted sense of humor. That doesn’t mean you can’t do it 🙂 Find a family to help. Clean or babysit or slip them some cash. Trust me… none of us ever have enough money. If you want to donate to an org, give to The Nation Autism Association. THEY HELP REAL PEOPLE. DON’T GIVE TO Autism Speaks.
