I've had so many people contact me privately since I started blogging. Everyone wants to know what I know about vaccines. I certainly have learned way more over the last six months than I ever knew before.
Friends, here is documented proof, of vaccine - induced autism:
I am hoping this blogger doesn't mind my linking to her blog, which I find freaking amazing. Her most recent blog post is sure worth reading. It's like being in my brain.
I read her blog and I cry and I think: I wish I knew! I wish I knew! I wish I knew a year ago what I know now, I would have made such different decisions. So friends, read. Read, research, and think. I read the dates on her blog, and I kick myself for not educating myself before I had children. Before I allowed one of them to become disabled - maybe for life.
I know I said I wouldn't talk about vaccines, after that first vaccine related post. But how can I not? My decision to vaccinate my children, to do the "responsible thing" and believe that nothing bad would *really* happen to us, changed each of us, forever.
And of course, I am thankful for the friends I've met on this journey and the knowledge I've gained.
But I would rather my son not be 1 of the 50. I would rather he not have had his brain and body damaged, probably forever to some extent. I would rather these precious moments of his babyhood and toddlerhood have been spent in happiness with me and his brother and our family, instead of hours on end with therapists, and worrying, and maybe in pain, suffering in silence.
So sue me.
Read, educate yourselves. Do what I didn't. What I would give anything, ANYTHING to go back and do.
