For Pity's Sake. Are they all this bad?

"This is the reason I would say that sometimes I would rather my son have cancer than autism:
If my son had cancer then the doctors would know what to do. MY job would then be to sit by him and love him and chat with him at his bedside and while the experts do THEIR job. In autism, my job is to be the doctor, find the answers to help him, and hope maybe one day he'll chat with me. Autism moms dream of a day that they can walk into a doctor's office and the doctor knows just what to do. What a miracle that would be. We have a HUGE weight on our shoulders. Cancer is of course AWFUL, but what if your kid had cancer and the docs just threw their hands up and said, see ya!?"
So says yet another commenter who just doesn't get it. http://www.ageofautism.com/2009/07/autism-perception-a-bump-in-the-road.html

So, basically, it's all about YOU. You'd rather your kid had cancer because it would be easier on YOU. Your kid would be suffering, go through some rather gruesome treatments to cure the cancer, might die. But YOU're good with that because the doctor would be in charge. Right.

So much wrong at AoA. So much. Wrong.

You must be pretty happy,what with Hating Autism, and AOA,driving so much traffic over to your rinky-dink little blog here.It's nice to know,that even though I share pretty much the same condition as a lot of these vaccine damaged kids,the fact that I am a couple of decades older,and my autism was triggered by an infection ,that I can document, seems to give me a little more credibility.

Clearly you have no idea what it is like to fight one doctor after another,year after year,trying to have your medical problems taken seriously.To have one doctor after another tell you "We can't figure out what's going on here with (Fill in name of medical problem.),but we do know you have autism.Autism is a mental illness,so you are probably making up a phony disease to get attention.That's what people with mental illnesses do."

No matter how sick you get,no matter what happens ,this is what you get from doctors.This is what is worse than cancer.

Do you have any idea what it's like,to have a childhood diagnosis of autism,recover somewhat ,and then get an acute infection,and as an adult,and regress to a nonverbal,headbanging, wall smashing,shit smearing autistic ?It's not so much the vaccines,although with what I have learned about Merthiolate,and Pink Disease,I am not so sure,as the stress to the immune system.

Just ask Dr.Martha Herbert or Dr.Tim Buie.You know,a couple of "anti vaxer" "DAN! quacks" who just happen to head departments at Massachusetts General Hospital.

I think Autistic Bitch from Hell has the right idea,even though that's not what she meant.

A**holes are a perfect metaphor for what needs to be cured. (Yes I have read the post where she says. "They can't even take a crap without finding some sort of behavioral symptom in their crapping routine."

If you'll notice bowel disease,is one of the common features of Rett Syndrome,Mitochondrial Disease,and whatever other diseases involve autism.They almost all have bowel disease as a feature.Bowel disease,that like any other medical condition makes autism symptoms worse,in a sort of negative symbiosis.Do you have any idea what it's like to have to go to the ER as a child,and have to have your backed up bowels cleaned out like Rotor Rooter ?Do you have any idea what it's like to spend most of a day,or a week,with acute out of control diarrhea,and go to a doctor and have them say "Well that's just because you have autism."

How many of you eloped as children ? You know wandering in a state sort of like a cross between sleepwalking and senile dementia,and coming around hours later,with no idea where you are or what you were doing.

Just another part of "The Joy of Autism".

How many you have been arrested while eloping,as an adult?Arrested,in part,because,you were in a nonverbal state,and couldn't explain what you were doing?

I can't wait for the day when those of us who have this "autistic like"inflammatory/immune,and metabolic syndrome get our own diagnosis,like those lucky mitochondrial people did a couple of years ago.Then we can leave you neuroinsanity types to revel in your precious autism unopposed.

Clay said...

I look forward to that day too, Roger. It's good to see you finally admit that whatever you have isn't autism. And didn't you used to say that your type was mitochondrial in nature?
