This is all a bit too real and personal for me. My first born was fully vaccinated on schedule, and it's a long story so please hang with me a sec
while I try to verbalize it. He was a normal healthy baby, but I never knew there was an option not to vaccinate. I was raised to believe that was how
you do it, and you can't go to school without them shots, so I did as a good girl and had him vaccinated and circumcised. He was pretty healthy even
for the first year and a half. Then I remember something was odd about his shot records. This doctor he saw(we had Medicaid at the time and medicaid
doctors are slim). This doctor was new in town, he seemed like a very professional doctor. He was very good with kids, and his office was professional
and clean. My son was given a routine dose of vaccines, and since I was incredibly uninformed at the time, I just took the little pamphlets that
warned of fever and crankiness afterwards, and didn't think anything of it. My son was feverish and cranky but nothing to report. He seemed fine the
next day. A week later he began to get really ill, his teeth started turning brown. We took him to the doctor and they said bottle rot, but my son had
been weaned at 12 months exactly. My son just stopped talking. He was fine, right on target, then boom. ..he stopped talking. He started showing signs
of autism. About the age of 2 we were moving and needed his records, then we noticed that all the shots my son had received from this specific doctor
had not been recorded, by the state or on his vaccine records. I was furious since now he'd have to get them all done a second time to be able to go
When we were at my sons last well child visit, I noticed something was strange about the doctor, his eyes were bloodshot and he acted just weird. He
was scatter brained and nervous, and when we went to get the records a week later, this doctors office was completely abandoned. He was missing, and
we went to the health department to see about copies of the shot record since this doctor had gone missing and the nurse there said, "Oh doctor *so
and so?* he's gone, no one knows where..he just up and left."
What do I make of that, my son, who was healthy displays autism like symptoms after a series of shots that were never properly recorded by the health
staff by a doctor that can no longer even be found. Of course I blame myself for being naive and so trusting of doctors with my son's health and not
looking into what these things are even for in the first place. It was my fault for not noticing the errors on the shot records.
So, my son didn't speak full sentences until he was 5, by 6 years old he was underweight even though he ate very healthy, he had his teeth removed at
4 years old because they were so badly rotted. I ended up taking him out of public school because they said he would have to be medicated due to ADHD.
He's now homeschooled, speaking German and English(we were shocked when he seemed to find German actually easier than English), and while he still
has reading problems, he's come a huge way, and we're very proud of him. His adult teeth also came in perfect with no problems. It was something
either during his development or the only thing I can think of at that time was the shots, since he didn't get sick often. He did get whooping cough
at 6 months though, but it was mild, and they didn't put him on antibiotics for that either. Now, he has a knack for computers and can beat a video
game very easily..which most parents wouldn't let their kids play video games but there was a time that we never thought he'd be able to do anything
that required critical thinking skills, they DO help him think, but his time is limited on them, so he can do other things. He's able to help us feed
our animals like any other child, and some things he still lacks, but every year he's getting better. We were told autism and adhd were incurable,
but now he couldn't even get a diagnosis for either of them, because for whatever reasons, he's better now.
