This is Jeremy’s story, as told by his mother.
Jeremy received all vaccinations according to schedule, beginning at birth. Every vaccine left his immune system weaker. He had chronic ear infections and fevers. He learned to walk and talk on schedule. He would imitate us and tell us all about Pooh characters (which he still watches).
When he was 16 months old, he received MMR, DTaP and HIB in one well-baby visit. He was sick with a fever the full week after and kept holding his head. He slowly regressed and 4 months later I wrote on his calendar…”why did you stop talking?” His pediatrician said it was just because he was busy with other things. Well, it was “Autism” and seizures (dx landau kleffner at first). We enrolled him in every therapy possible. Nothing was getting through. He would drool all his food out of his mouth and could not use utensils anymore. He was not off a bottle or potty trained until after 5 yrs old – while in ABA 40 hours per week. Intensive detoxing, tests, therapies (speech, OT, Hippo), and ABA followed the next 12 yrs. He has been through so much.
When Jeremy was around the age of 12, an ABA professional told me to focus on life skills only. Basically, give up and look into residential homes. His raging frustration during ABA left him in full BARR holds by 4 adults. He couldn’t talk so he was mad and they thought they would “break” him like a horse. So, they would hold him down until he stopped crying. I am horrified now thinking about what he has been through.
These kids have so many biological problems; colitis, severe headaches, chronic constipation, food allergies, seizures… and more. Then they cannot communicate like some stroke victims. They are in there but how would you know? No handwriting, no words.
Please understand, his other 3 siblings did not receive the absurd vaccine schedule he endured and they are fine and thriving. Jeremy was bombarded and his body could not handle it.
