World Gone Mad!

...Hello? Is this thing on?

It's been awhile, hasn't it? I'm gonna cut to the core of it. I'm afraid.

Some terrible things have happened since my last post. Most people reading this, already know. But for those few who dont, a little back story.

A few months ago, a doctor at the CDC admitted on recordings and in a press release about fraudulent studies that were done on the MMR vaccine back in 2000. They covered up a discovery that the vaccine was causing a massive increase in autism in African American boys. Despite this coming to light, it was neatly swept under a giant rug to protect the people involved in the study. The doctor was given a promotion and the head of the CDC during this time was given a very powerful, new position at Merck. And now the truth has become myth. Twitter has been on fire regarding the CDC Whistleblower, reaching almost a billion tweets. Still, crickets from mainstream.

After this, there were mumps outbreaks at fully vaccinated schools as well as in the NHL, where they are vaccinated as well. Now, we are experiencing a measles outbreak at Disneyland. About 70 people have contracted it so far, some were vaccinated and some were not. While 70 cases is still less than the average number of reports for measles in America per year, it's caused a huge media frenzy. The result of this frenzy is why I am afraid right now.

Social media is exploding with threats against unvaccinated people, mostly kids (even though the adult population of this country is far more undervaccinated than the children are). I've seen terrible comments from grown adults. "Sue them! Jail them! Segregate them! If I get the measles from them, I will (insert violent act here) them!!!" There was a suggestion on the always charming show, The View, today regarding the branding of all unvaccinated people. They should all wear bracelets for identification. What's next, "labor camps?" Is history going to repeat itself in the form of Nazi friggen Germany of all places?

The MMR vaccine's package insert, written by the manufacturer, states that it can shed. Let me say that again. It.Can.Shed. Same with the flu shot, the pertussis shot, the chickenpox shot, and the shingles shot. Here is the problem with segregating unvaccinated individuals (you know, aside from the Nazi thing), is that who will these people start blaming when these outbreaks continue to happen? When all of us cesspooled unvaccinated, undervaccinated, vaccine injured ones are gone...then what? Will the truth finally prevail? That's a steep price to pay.

Our country is supposed to have this thing called freedom of medical privacy. So when we make the choice to not vaccinate or quit vaccinating, it's nobody's business except our own. Bit by bit, that right has been chipped away. Now exemptions are almost impossible to come by in many states, including my own. Here, and many other places, you have to have a doctor sign off on your choice to quit or not vaccinate. My child suffered the WRITTEN SIDE EFFECTS ON THE PACKAGE INSERT of Encephalopathy and Gastrointestinal damage. He was hurt by his vaccines. Many, many, many kids are hurt by their vaccines. The schedule is bloated beyond belief and it's growing. Chornic illness runs rampant in our childrens' generation. They are sick. Not from something treatable, like the flu or pertussis or the measles. From life long chronic diseases that will put a heavy strain on our healthcare system, economy and work force when they reach adulthood.

And now we see the rights being chipped away further. This outbreak has caused a huge tidal wave of hatred towards something people shouldn't be scared of. And now people like me and Dana have to sit in more fear of what will come next. Angry mobs, mandatory vaccination....segregation?! Vaccine injured families suffer every single day as it is. I have friends with children who literally cannot function. Some can't even walk down their stairs unattended because they get grand mal seizures and have fallen down hard enough to be killed. They have no hope for retirement or any savings because every last cent is spent on special diets, therapies, schooling, specialists, you name it. They fear that their children will be sent to live in a secluded facility with minimal care once they die. For the love of God, let these people live in peace from their choices of saving their children from further damage!

So here it is. I'm afraid. I'm afraid of incoherently angry people bullying me, my child and my friends. I'm afraid of what could happen to us if this unfounded fear turns into mass hysteria. It's the measles you guys. No one has died in our first world country from the measles in over a decade. Yes, complications are possible, just like every single disease on the planet including the ones we don't have vaccines for.

The real disease here is the fear. You cannot sit there and claim to be a freedom loving American, and try to force medical procedures on everyone. My child is sick because of these procedures. I make the choice to save him from it. You make your choices. If you want to vaccinate, do it and be confident in your choice enough to believe it makes you and your family safe. I do not fear measles, pertussis, the flu, etc. They are treatable, especially for us. We eat a very clean diet, we supplement for deficiencies, we exercise, we wash our hands, we don't abuse antibiotics, we have strong immune systems. We can survive these illnesses. We cannot survive the onslaught of toxins in those syringes. Our lives, our choices.
