Why My Son Has Autism

Monday, July 27th, 2009

slipperyCharlie was born October 2001.  I believe with every fiber of my being that my son would not have an autism diagnosis today, not be sick and suffering, if I had not allowed him to be vaccinated, if we had used non-toxic products around the house, and if I had taken more care to feed him only good, clean foods.  I can never go back, never change the past; however, I can help others by sharing what happened to my son.

I’ve been an autism advocate for the past 4 years, a vaccine safety advocate for the past 2 years, a Generation Rescue Angel the past year.  You wanna know something?  I’m sick and damn tired of it.  I’m tired of the uphill battle.  I’m tired of the continued “debate” when we have so many children who have been affected by vaccines.  I’m tired of the ND crowd attacking us and suggesting we do not accept our children or love our children.  And I’m scared.  I’m scared of the number of calls and emails I get each month via my Rescue Angel status.  I don’t want to get to know anyone else.  I don’t want to make more friends.  I don’t want to hear the same story over, and over, and over.  I want this madness to stop.

NVIC at Work for Our Kids

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

logoIf you have a school-age child, autism or not, you need to read this post and keep up with this situation.

“Parents and legislators should be asking themselves right now: Why are children the first to get experimental swine flu vaccines? Are schools equipped to get signed informed consent from parents before vaccination, keep accurate vaccination records and screen out children biologically at high risk for suffering vaccine reactions? Will people giving these vaccines know how to monitor children afterwards and immediately record, report and treat serious health problems that develop? And will states have the financial resources to compensate children who are injured?” said NVIC co-founder and president, Barbara Loe Fisher.

Xtreme_Generosity_Small**UPDATE:  Now THIS is what I’m talking about!!!!  Woooohooooo!!!!!!


I was just minding my own business, lurking on, when something struck me… the list of open loans at the top of the page is a hell of a lot shorter than last night when I was lurking.  I then scrolled down and noticed several loans were fully funded by Sun Valley Tech Solutions.  I just had to share.  It’s incredible!  Head over to Lend4Health and check it out for yourself, then head over to Sun Valley Tech Solutions and check them out!!

I’m stoked about this!!

Tuesday, July 07, 2009 by: Sherry Baker, Health Sciences Editor

(NaturalNews) According to a new study by scientists at Rhode Island Hospital, millions of Americans could be at risk of serious and even fatal diseases because of chemicals used to fertilizer and to preserve food. Scientists have found a strong link between increasing levels of nitrates and nitrites in our food supply and increasing death rates from Alzheimer’s, diabetes mellitus and Parkinson’s disease.

The research, just published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, investigated trends in death rates due to diseases associated with advancing age. They found convincing parallels between age adjusted rises in mortality from certain illnesses — Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and diabetes — and the steadily increasing human exposure to nitrates, nitrites and nitrosamines through processed and preserved foods as well as fertilizers.

Can I Borrow $30,000?

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

DollarSignsCharlie came to me today and said, “Mom, what’s a coupon (that’s the word I heard)?”

I said, “Coupon? You know what that is – those little pieces of paper in the grocery that make something cheaper…”

He said, “Coupon? No Jeanne. Keepon… k-e-e-p-o-n!”

I said, “Keepon? I have no idea?   What’s a keepon?

He said, “Hint. Yellow machine. Keepon.”

I said, “Is it a tractor?”

He tilted his head at my stupidity. Then he said, “No. Google it.”

So I did. Keepon is a robot made to be used in social skills therapy with children with autism. Who knew?  Well, Charlie did.

Also, the cost is $30,000.  Woof!

Here’s a picture of Keepon with Charlie’s favorite robot of all time, Aibo (I think we all remember the E-bay/Aibo debacle of 2008 HERE).  This picture put the biggest smile I’ve ever seen on my son’s face.

6a00d8357f3f2969e201157118b756970c-150wiIf you are living with autism and read this piece, you’ll no doubt cry with relief that someone has put into words what you have been living/breathing/feeling all these years but have perhaps been unable to express to others.

If you are not living with autism, you should definitely read this piece, then you should get down on your knees and thank God this is not your reality.

Autism Perception: “A Bump in the Road?” by Julie Obradovic
…But then someone said something that snapped me into sobriety.

“And aren’t we all so lucky otherwise? I mean, really, look at all of our lives. We’re all successful career women and moms. We’re happy and healthy. And granted, some of us have had a few bumps in the road, like you, Julie with Eve, but none of us have had anything really traumatic or awful happen to them. Really ,we’re so lucky.”

I didn’t know what to say. I sat there with my mouth open. A bump in the road?!
