Today, I received no less than 10 emails informing me about the Lancet retraction....frankly, I could care less !!! I went and looked on AoA and noticed that they have rebutted over and over again...kind of funny how they are protesting a bit too much !!!
Then, I went on a few other "predictable" web sites and read "predictable" comments on how if it was not for this amazing doctor..their children would be in "AUTISM HELL"..
I am the mother of 6 children...5 with some form of Autism. I think we know a thing or two about autism. Contrary to popular belief...they are all AUTISTIC.....!!!
Without the aide of biomedical treatment..which includes B12 shots, IVIG infusion, chelation, scoping, spinal taps, lotions, suppositories and creams...our children have improved. As a matter of fact..they are excelling.
Being from the great state of Texas: where we "cure" our meat and "recover" our furniture....I find those words offensive.
My children have all improved since their individual diagnoses...mainly, because, we never thought they wouldn't. We never made them feel they could not achieve any goal they wanted to meet. They are amazing.
Now.. I know this is hard to believe, but I have never posed for Playboy, and Oprah does not grovel over me (though she probably should ;) ), but I think I have a thing or two to offer to parents who are raising autistic children. I don't have all of the answers, but after 19 years, I have learned a lot from my children.
I have an interview with a pretty big news entity this week...will I speak my mind??...What do you think????
