Dear Susan...

I am offically loosing it.

I just vented at one of my mom's oldest friends. Known her since I was in 7th grade. Love her... she is a good woman who has endured great hardship with admirable grace and faith in God.

Long story short..

Mom: "Susan just had a grandbaby, send vaccine info"
Me: "Sending basic Hep B birth series info."
Susan: "Polio is bad."
Me: "Susan, take this seriously, you are pissing me off."
Susan, "I don't know why you are offended. I know how hard you work on autism awareness."

And then I lost my shit. A decade of watching baby after baby after baby after baby fall... and not being able to stop it. Sometimes I think I will end up being a crazy woman who starts screaming on a street corner one day and never stops.

My email to Susan (not her real name) that could be sent to any grandparent in this country.

Susan,

I am offended because because you don't seem to be taking this matter seriously. I don't know how else to explain it.

Vaccine safety in abysmal in this country, half of our kids are suffering from chronic illness, and no matter how much mainstream research and government information I give to people, few seem to get that their tiny babies are in danger of life long damage and illness because their families are blindly participating in the most corrupt program in medicine.

I am offended because I don't do any work for "autism awareness." I hate "autism awareness." "Autism Awareness" month is something that we survive, not appreciate. "Autism Awareness" is a propaganda campaign that hurts families that have a child with and autism diagnosis, and prevents them from getting proper medical care. You have heard of "pink washing" yes? Well "autism awareness" is blue washing. Today is May 1st and my fb feed is full of "Thank God that *&%$#& month is finally over," messages from "autism" moms. And the fact that you can be reading my mothers posts for years and think that I support "autism awareness" work makes me want to bang my head on the wall, and burst into tears. The fact that I can spend a decade of my life trying to communicate serious medical risk issues, only to see that smart people are hearing that I am trying to work on "autism awareness" while their children get sicker and sicker has turned me into someone that struggles with very deep anger on a daily basis.

So I will try one more time to make you understand what I am trying to communicate to you.

Susan... there really is no such thing as "autism." There are no kids with "autism," there are only children with an autism diagnosis. A diagnosis of autism is merely a description of behaviors that has no connection to anything in hard science. Forget "autism" exists, it is just an archaic term used by a Doctor at Johns Hopkins in 1943 to describe something he had never seen before. What is happening in the modern western world is that children are undergoing an extreme assault of manufactured chemicals from the moment of conception, that is such a radical departure from our entire evolutionary history going back to The Garden, that the entire generation of children is sick and neurologically damaged. Kids with an "autism" diagnosis are just a subset of those chemically/metabolically injured children who have some behaviors in common, but often have vastly different medical pictures and biological syndromes that are causing the behaviors.

My testimony to you is that modern medicine (and food) is destroying the health of our children, and then refusing to treat them.

More than HALF of all US children are chronically ill and developmentally delayed. There was nothing like this when I was a child. http://www.academicpedsjnl.net/…/S1876-2859(10)002…/abstract (and that does not include things like pediatric cancers and SIDS) The current threat to your grandchildren in the 21st century is NOT short term, treatable communicable disease. It is life long autoimmunity and brain damage. If they are following mainstream medical protocols, odds are that half of your grandchildren will end up with the disorders on this list. Please read the list carefully. Please keep in mind that 18% of children in this country now are developmentally delayed or disabled.

Vaccines are but one source of this chemical assault, but they are likely the largest part for most children.

I am "offended" because I see you blowing off the information I sent you, and because I know there is a fifty/fifty shot that I will get an email from my mother in three years that says, "Susan McLean's grandchild was just diagnosed with insert neuroimmune disorder here and their doctors have not been able to find anything to help them. Where can I send her?" And my day will be spent looking for alt med resources that you guys can access locally (or fly half way across the country for depending on where baby is), and pay tens (or hundreds like our family) of thousands of dollars for out of pocket, because you didn't take the time to just read the literature I sent and do a basic risk benefit analysis on that specific child.

So if you want me not to be "offended" then please just read what I have sent you. Take a weekend, read through the links completely, and if you think that they are of no use to your family and that I am some version of a crazy person after that, then that is totally fine with me. I have resigned myself to the fact that most of the people in my old life will go to their graves believing I am. But I am loosing my damn mind watching child after child being pushed off the chemical cliff as I scream at the top of my lungs from the bottom of the cavern for parents to stop following us on the path that has destroyed our children.

Please do the research.

Something might have modified the link above? This one?

I hope "Susan" and baby's mom take your information to heart.

If it helps you can pass on from me that the only thing worse than knowing I've disabled my child out of trusting and surrendering responsibility to monitor what is going into her body is that, plus seeing reminders of the "lesser" harm done every time I get out in pretty much every family I know with youth and children.

The link J Bishop has works; the one in the article does not. Just so you know.

I know a lot of children in this country, and nowhere near half of them are chronically ill or developmentally delayed.

I agree with you on vaccines and that people shouldn't blindly trust physicians who were told that vaccines are "good" and that they "save lives," etc. I get it because, out of college, I got a job at a local health clinic and part of my job was to do "outreach" in the community and talk about our clinic and to assure people of the safety of vaccines. So, there was me...with a psychology degree, working out of my field and unknowingly regurgitating everything my supervisor handed to me and whatever leaflets the vaccine reps would give me. I didn't have any clue until one day when I finally chose the red pill. Thankfully I only worked there and spread that "knowledge" around for a year.

It was years later that my friend first told me she wasn't vaccinating and why. I thought she was nuts. So I did some homework and my own reading and decided that my baby wasn't getting any more vaccinations, aside from what was already inflicted on her at birth, before I knew better. She's 7 now and she's fine, aside from a healthy dose of attitude and my ADHD and Dyslexia. But the ADHD is a super power and Dyslexia is always good for a laugh, so we're good.

But my son, now 3, is the one with Autism. I ate organically, prior to becoming pregnant with him and during. Healthy, unprocessed foods, a traditional diet and natural organic body products throughout my pregnancy. I was and still am very conscientious of avoiding chemicals for my family. He was just a few days old when I noticed the sensory issues. Arching his back and twisting to the right and screaming whenever laid down. Lots of screaming. He didn't sleep well at all. Only when he fell asleep nursing, in 40 minute stretches. So reading your blog that there is no Autism and that it's just a collection of symptoms manifested from chemical exposures is just frustrating to me. It's like saying there is no cancer...it's just a bunch of cells that start to grow in the wrong places. Someone observed a collection of similar behaviors and gave that a name and it exists, with or without a name. I fully believe that kids with Autism and a more sensitive neurological system may be more sensitive to the chemicals in vaccines. If I wasn't familiar with Autism and what some sensory issues might look like, we would have easily missed it and thought our highly energetic non-verbal, screaming, excited, happy, intense adorable and frustrating little guy was just "difficult." Then he wouldn't have gotten diagnosed at age 2 and started ABA and speech therapy promptly and made so much progress in a year that we're all floored. Maybe, if I was unaware of the dangers of vaccines and had him vaccinated, his neurological issues would have been worse and his amazing personality would not have emerged and we would never have known if vaccines caused his collection of symptoms commonly referred to as Autism. But, as it stands, I can tell you that my son's collection of symptoms is not due to vaccine, but that I believe it could have been made worse had we gotten him vaccinated. Just had to share that for a little perspective.
