An exhausted mother first; a physician second -- one who sees things differently now . . .
Went to see Vaxxed again. Took my husband and one of my dearest friends. This movie yet again had me bawling, crying so much I used a paper napkin in a vain attempt to dry my face. But I feel NO SHAME. I watched everyone around me, including my husband, who never cries, openly sobbing as we saw footage of the older vaccine injured kids.
I cannot tell you how it feels to wonder if your child will ever talk, will stop hurting himself and us for no apparent reason, and to wonder if he is sad or hurting. To go to an appointment of some kind nearly every day. To go broke paying for said appointments bc insurance doesn't cover autism (yes, really!). To lose your whole extended family and most of your friends....
The only words I have for this are SOUL-SHATTERING and HEART WRENCHING.
This is all compounded because I handed him over for all those vaccines when he was sickly and under weight. I bought into the LIES THE CDC has pedaled to all of us...as a physician, I consider the years of education and hard work invested in my career, and I wonder how many other medical "facts" I have used in my practice on my patients which may in fact be very false and based on no scientific data?
What has happened to my son has absolutely changed the way I practice Medicine. I now really LISTEN to my patients. I vow NEVER to make anyone feel as dismissed and uncared for as we did leaving our pediatrician's office on follow up visits, when Dr. would make a point of near ridiculing me for thinking the encephalopathy had anything to do with the diagnosis of autism. This is what he said the last time we saw him:
"There is no way. Vaccines don't cause reactions like that...besides the RESEARCH (CDC??) proved there was no relationship between autism and vaccinations...your son has autism. There is no cure...IT WOULD BE SMART TO PLAN FOR HIS FUTURE, LIKE A GROUP HOME."
How would YOU react?
Medicine needs a revolution. And it's now.
The first picture is of my child the night he nearly died from vaccine injury. He now has apraxia, autism, Severe Immunodeficiency Syndrome, Metabolic Dysfunction, Hypotonia, and suspected Seizures.
Second picture -- I am: first an exhausted MOTHER TO A SEVERELY VACCINE INJURED CHILD, second a physician who sees things a lot differently now.

My heart breaks for you. I will see VAXXED now. Please support Barbara Loe Fisher at NVIC. I have been watching this slow train wreck for 3 decades now, and it seems the crash must be complete before we gather the collective guts to stop big Pharma, the AMA, the US and other governments... Read. Support. Speak up like THIS! Thank you for sharing your story.
Dear Dr. Costello...thank you for your comment which I will pass along to the mother/physician who shared her story. Thank you, too, for your willingness to see VAXXED. Vaxxed the movie and the movement is giving long overdue validation to countless families who have experienced vaccine injury and loss. As more people, including healthcare professionals, have the courage to come forward, we will have the power needed to stand up to the vaccine industry that has caused so much harm and heartache.

It will have to be the medical community that bands together to demand the changes. Everyone has disregarded the intelligent observations of parents--they have no voice.

Autism is very clearly caused by immune activation in the brain, and specifically the cytokine interleukin-6.

A heartfelt thank you to the mom/physician who wrote this! I'm the parent of a vaccine-injured child, too. I know what you're talking about. Sharing your story like this, and being a better doctor because of what you've experienced, will make a big difference for a lot of parents and kids. Thank you!
