I listen to report after report about parents with children who have horrific conditions and some that have conditions that have become much more
common recently. When I hear that a child of 14 months being diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and autism I have to really wonder if the child was ever given a
chance to find themselves and work through any internal struggle or dialouge which I believe is natural for every child and every child will develop
skills and traits at different rates. If I remember correctly Einstein was thought to be retarded as he didn't speak until almost 4 and I believe
Winston Churchill was similar in that fact. Many children have trouble expressing themselves and I think a lot of that has to do with their
enviornment and how they see others interacting.
Now when I say Munchausen by proxy could be on the rise, I'm not necessarily saying that it is in the traditional sense where a care taker is out
right poisoning the child or causing physical harm, though putting a toddler on stimulants is, in my opinion a form of abuse especially when I hear
the reasons from the (usually mother) about the reasons that they need it such as, "they don't sit still, they are always getting into things, they
act up, they don't let me get any rest (and by this I think they mean they don't get their 8-10 hours of beauty sleep and not 2-3 hours or rest
between feedings/sleep/naps). I've heard mothers talking about their children as if they expected a super human delivered out of the box (saying
these mothers have a womb is being generous).
On top of all of this, almost all of them seem to give their children formula and often a vegetable base (soy) formula of some kind instead of
traditional animal milk like goat, sheep or cow and it seems totally out of the question for some of these women to actually breast feed their
children. I think breast feeding may be one of the most important aspects of an infant's and toddlers life and it is one of the most important times
to bond with the child and form a life long intimate relationship and I can garuntee that when the child doesn't get this it leaves a huge void in
their life and I suspect it increases the chances for psychopathy and sociopathy on top of a lot of other mental illness conditions (schizophrenia and
bi-polar have been suggested as well).
Just because a child can't communicate on the same level as adults, it doesn't mean that they can't communicate and I beleive that other infants
and toddlers have the ability to communicate clearly with each other and especially with animals. i've seen some amazing things with young children
(say 3 and younger) interacting with what most adults would consider viscious animals (usually dogs) and they seem to be best friends and naturally
protective and loving of each other.
I think this phenomenom stems from the "ME ME ME" mentality that has permeated our society since the beginning of the Boomer generation and it has
been passed down, been augmented and in many cases magnified to the extent that they only think of children as a symbol for social status, a way to
prove to others that they are "good", fertile, loving, etc or else they wouldn't have been able to have children - and worst of all as a means of
getting a larger governement check, more child support or as a way of tratping a man. Some of these types really look down on couoles who can not
conceive and think themselves so superior but I'd like to point out that not everyone has the same path in life and those people should mind their
own Fin business.
As I said before there are different levels of this "disease" (is it really a disease or a disorder, or what??) and I have to wonder if I was victim
of this for many years of my childhood as there were SO many unexplained sicknesses which doctors could not explain yet I was in terrible agony until
I left for college and then things seemed to just clear up for the most part. I also had 2 guardians/caretakers/parents who went to the doctors more
than anyone I've ever met, had more surgeries between the two than an entire NFL football team and I had to constantly hear about their ill's,
pains, hardships and they were always "yeah but this pain is so much worse than what other people have because I have such a high pain tolerance"
and other things such as that. There was always a miricale story about how the doctors couldnt' beleive they could walk into the office with the
amount of pain that XXXX injury was causing. Having watched this grow up I learned to not complain about pain under any circumstance unless it was
something where I thought I was in serious life or death situation. Have a severely sprained ankle? Play the entire football game (having to walk
1/2 mile to and from field 4 times during game (Suitup in locker room -> warmups on field -> locker room -> out for first 1/2 -> locker room for 1/2
time -> field for 2nd half -> locker room because of lightening striking stadium lights blackout -> back to field to finish game -> back to locker
room - for total of 4 miles plus the drills and game! this was all in 2-3" of thick mud that formed suction on ankle on every step - I just wanted to
die but I would not say a word about the pain or complain - I REALLY should have asked to have it wrapped by the trainer instead of just lacing up
high top cleats really tight) This lead to bad damage of my ankle and maybe an extra 3 weeks in healing. But that was my seinior year and that was
my choice - but it stemmed from my enviornment.
Every Christmas my large family would gather at my grandmothers on Christmas day. Being the "black sheep" (so I was told by my cousins) I was
always picked on and tourtured somewhat. In 4th grade I found myself extremely ill about 20-30 mins after arriving (stomach bug like no other -
severe pain & irritable bowls, 103 temp, vomit, etc) I was put in a room on the far end of the house for the entire day from 11am till about 12am
with a couple visits over the day. An inner voice told me that they didn't want me down there and this wasn't natural.
365 days later to just about the minute, I got the same symptoms and was quaranteined in a room by myself for the rest of the day with nothing to do
but read my grandma's magazines. I was given some nasty soup (a kind I would never eat - tomato) and oyster crackers, which I absolutely hate, while
they feasted all day, played games, opened presents, etc. I'd be lucky if someone stopped up every 3 hours or so.
Well, wouldn't you know it, but 365 day again, to the hour, I suffered the same symptoms and now I was older (6th grade) and they had finally gotten
cable in one room (basic) so at least I could watch some crappy TV. I think that may have been part of the plan because I only saw a few people a
coupld times over the day. When I asked, how could this happen to me 3 years in a row and no one else has ever gotten sick, and we had all eaten
the same meals (as far as I know) I was told by my parents about how many times they were sick as a child, how many holidays they spent by themselves
sick and that some others downstairs didn't feel "so hot" for the whole day (could have been the massive amounts of alcohol, buckets of shrimp and
pounds and pounds of cheese, hourderves, heavy meals (prime rib) while I was served chicken broth soup with saltines on 2 occasions along with 1/2
water 1/2 gingerale. When I said I think I was poisoned I caught the ire of my
