Last night Thera Sanchez suffered a seizure during a live interview on the Dr. Drew Show. I don’t watch the Dr. Drew Show and I didn’t seen the seizure but I read about it in the comments thread on Dr. Drew’s facebook page. I still have not watched the video. I have no need to watch yet another beautiful girl go through what my daughter has been through as a result of vaccine-injury. I have no doubt Thera’s seizure was real; just as I have no doubt the symptoms she and the other girls are suffering with are real. They are not due to Conversion Disorder or “Mass Hysteria.”
What really struck me as I read through some of the thousands of comments on Dr. Drew’s wall was the nastiness of people who believe what mainstream media tells them about vaccines and neurological damage. The accusation that Thera was faking the seizure or that the girls are faking this whole episode in general is so hurtful and so damaging… I feel as if I am in the court room of a rape trial in the 1960s, watching the defense attorney attack the victim on the stand with statements like, “You asked for it!” and “What did you think was going to happen when you dress that way?” and “Tell me Ms. Smith…. just how many lovers HAVE you had in your lifetime?” Thankfully, laws have been passed to forbid this kind of behavior by defense attorneys in rape trials. In the past it was this revictimization of the victim that kept SO MANY rapes from being reported. When rapes are not reported the rapist is free to continue his spree of destruction unencumbered.
Could it be that the officials who are “investigating” the Le Roy Twelve and what has happened to them know about revictimization and what happens as a result? Is it possible the diagnosis of “Mass Hysteria” or “Conversion Disorder” is made for just the purpose of discouraging other victims of vaccine-injury from coming forward? I generally try to stay away from “conspiracy theories” and for the last many years I have intentionally aligned myself on the side of facts rather than assumptions. I am realizing that I may have missed a lot of information in doing so. What I do know about investigating things, from my education and experience as a biomedical consultant working with children and adults who have been diagnosed with everything from ADHD and autism to chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, is that in a great many of those cases patients who finally ended up in my office reported the same kinds of frustration that Thera and her friends and their families are giong through. The common factor with The Le Roy Twelve and many of my former patients/clients is that they were not believed when they told their doctors that something physical was going on and there was something very real and tangible that was making them sick.
Let’s start with the facts:
“Mass Hysteria” or Conversion Disorder has been the diagnosis of choice when groups of people (usually women or girls) suddenly develop symptoms of severe neurological damage. The information I (and my friends who are helping with the research) have been able to find so far include several incidents that happened during the 2009 H1N1 “global pandemic.” Some of the articles merely state that the “Mass Hysteria” or Conversion Disorder outbreaks took place in school settings, and they note that the outbreaks were determined to be due to fears about H1N1. Others, like this article, state that the 350 students in 23 different schools who developed seizures, paralysis, uncontrollable body movements, inability to speak, confusion, loss of consciousness, etc… were actually vaccinated against H1N1 during a mass “in-school vaccination” program. Even though it was clear these kids all got the H1N1 vaccine, and even though it was clear many of them developed symptoms of neurological damage IMMEDIATELY after being vaccinated, the episode was STILL determined to be “Mass Hysteria” or “Conversion Disorder.” This is amazing to me. I’m beginning to think the reason this is so amazing to me is because I have stuck to the facts and have not been looking for evidence of a conspiracy. If you don’t ask the right questions, you will not find the true answers.
Here are links to other articles we have found so far:
Note: This citation says the Free Full Text version of the article is available. Generally in articles like this, when you click where it says Free Full Text there is a link that will take you to the online article. In this instance, however, there is no link provided. This seemed strange to me and when I first tried to access the article I thought perhaps it had been removed or “pulled.” Thankfully, one of my savvy research friends was able to find the online version. Click the next link to view it.
Do you notice how the title of the article has been changed? Actually it’s not the original article. It’s an editorial about the need to monitor safety in vaccine programs. This begs the question, “What happened to the original Free Full Text article?” Where did it go? and Why was it pulled?
Here it is:
So now we know where it went. It’s still available if you are willing to really dig and find it. And assuming you know how to dig and find it. Another question might be, “Why was it made so difficult to find?” You will have to draw your own conclusions on that. I’m trying very hard to just stick to the facts.
Back to the list:
This article was actually the first one I found when I started looking. It reports on 12 students at a high school in North Carolina. There appear to be many similarities between this group and The Le Roy Twelve. If anyone reading this lives in Ashe County, North Carolina, and knows any of these students, please have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can start gathering the data necessary to determine what the common factors are between the two outbreaks.
So… Those are the facts… at least the facts we know of at this point.
I feel led to say something at this point…. There is a basic tenet of research and of practicing medicine, which is called Occam’s Razor. Basically what Occam’s Razor means is “The simplest answer is often correct.” This is often referred to in medical practice with the following statement: “When you hear hoofprints, don’t think zebra.” In other words, if you hear hoofprints the most likely explanation is “horse” not “zebra.”
Given all of the above instances of “Mass Hysteria” or “Conversion Disorder” that have occurred in various parts of the world and all of which are associated with known administration of vaccines, why are we so discouraged by the investigating officials and the doctors involved in this case from thinking the cause is vaccine-related? To me, that seems like the “horse” in this equation. Some vague, mysterious mental illness that can’t be proven and which was made up by a coke-head suffering from organic brain decay from chronic syphilis infection certainly seems to be the zebra in this case.
If we are being encouraged and persuaded to think the Le Roy Twelve are victims of a zebra attack, we have to ask ourselves “WHY?”
Why are vaccines so sacrosanct that we cannot even question if they may be responsible?
I’m trying to stick to the facts, but it’s getting increasingly difficult.
