Julie Obradovic, one of America's Best Teachers and a contributing editor to Age of Autism, recently wrote about trying to explain her vaccine-injured daughter's autism recovery. The following are tips based on how she does it and how, if you are in the same boat, you can too:
1. Accept that there is no singular definition of recovery and that there is no singular way to explain it.
2. When people (who do not have vaccine-injured or autism-recovered children) want to know why your child was sick and how he or she got better, take a deep breath and size up the situation. Who is this person? How well do we know each other? In what context do we know each other? Is it safe?
3. Be less inclined to sugarcoat things. Examples of explanations that Julie gives are:
a. “She was injured by her mercury and her vaccines, which in her case, when used in combination with too much medication, resulted in brain damage. Happens to lots of kids actually. You have probably heard it called Autism, ADHD, and any number of other things plaguing children today. It’s all the same.”
b. “Well, you see, she got mercury poisoning. And then that led to a whole host of other problems. But really the mercury, for her, was the biggest problem, and thankfully, that is very treatable when treated expeditiously. Sadly, we didn’t know what it was for a few years, so she suffered a long time and ended up with some (what seems to be) permanent damage. However, she did get better when treated, and she’s doing awesome today.”
4. If that doesn’t work and they follow by asking, “Mercury? From where?” First, tell them how it happened. (Vaccines, doctors, medicine, mercury)
5. Explain how you figured it out. (Medical records, common sense, video documentation, research, and parent networs)
6. Explain how you treated it. (Vitamins, diet, detoxification, oxygen, antifungals, enzymes, physicians who had it happen to their own children)
Julie also recently wrote about being thankful for her daughter's recovery. See: http://www.examiner.com/article/one-of-america-s-best-teachers-editor-at-age-of-autism-thankful-for-recovery
