How Would You Know?

Go Talk Help"The injection site was a thousand times more intense than regular shots. I felt like a full grown male punched me in the arm. It throbbed, it tingled or buzzed all the way down my arm and up into my neck. The other odd sensation was the outer rim of my ears felt like they were on fire."

That is the report of an adult after the first dose of the Covid vaccine. I'm not writing this post to question the decision of an adult to be vaccinated, and I know that this person is aware of vaccine injury, and deliberated before making a personal, informed choice. Is it the choice you or I might have made?  That's one question.  Can you afford to be sidelined for a day, a week, a month or worse?

The bigger questions speaks to the huge responsibility too many of us bear for every aspect of our children's lives. Is it the choice you or I would make for our own children with autism, whether minor or over the age of 18? After reading the above description of an actual reaction, my first thought was, "Holy cow, my daughters would be trapped in this an unable to tell me!" Can your child tell you if his or her throat is closing up in anaphylaxis? Can your child tell you if he is in severe distress? The kind that requires immediate medical care? 

Many years ago, my youngest daughter choked on a round ravioli. We did not know until she was turning blue at the table. She did not call for us in any way. She did not come to us. She did not slam the table to get our attention. She did not appear to be in distress at all - until the Heimlich was needed and used to no avail. We had to call 911. If you read my memoir a hundred years ago, this is the same child that I put to bed with a broken arm, because she was not screaming in pain.  When she arrived at the hospital, the doctors were AGHAST that she was quiet and not writhing and howling. Such is autism. So if our kids have a reaction to a Covid vaccine, it's unlikely we will have any idea at all. Or that whatever behavior changes we see, because pain masquerades as behavior,  even if WE know they are different, will be written off by medical professionals as, "just autism." Of course, one can argue  the same thing about COVID symptoms - if they worsen to a critical point and we are unaware. Here's a list of symptoms. The ones in red are physically, externally visible.

Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches

New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
Trouble breathing
Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
New confusion
Inability to wake or stay awake
Bluish lips or face

We can measure a fever. We keep tabs on bathroom habits.  Or at least we would be aware that they have it and stay extra vigilant - if that's possible beyond how we already live. We face stresses and worries no matter what.



Cia :
The Bible is deep in symbolism.
Some times when you get a glimpse of just how complicated that symbolism goes, it makes me humble and inspired.

So here goes on the diphtheria. Of course Dan Olmsted helped me along with this because
Dan discussed on previous posts; the role of flies, horses, knee deep muddy roads, and streets; all mixed in with tons of horse manure; and all that connection to diphtheria.

Further along: in Mark Blaxwell's and Dan Olmsted's book: "Vaccines 2.0: The Careful Parent's Guide to Making Safe Vaccination Choices for Your Family" They found research that showed that the diphtheria bacteria - that caused the most production of leathery phlegm that chocked off the air to to children had in fact had a virus Yes, the bacteria was sick with a virus of their own. Well maybe not sick, but the virus was at least giving the bacteria extra DNA; so it was able to produce more of the leather forming film.

So again like "Yellow Fever, Black Goddess" book hounds and pounds upon; we got to keep our environment clean.

Gas driven cars are so much cleaner -especially with those platinum containing catalytic converters on cars. We live in a pretty good age, if we did not have medical tyranny trying to kill us.

So back to the symbolism of the Bible.
Not only did God mark Cain's forehead and hand and his descendants, which were mental and coordination problem brought on by too many grains, gluten (wheat), and carbohydrates, but this punishment too:

Genesis 4:12
"When you till the ground, it will no longer yield its produce to you. You will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth."

Cain has been cut off from nature. He has become an Urban dwellers that civilization brings. Cut off from understanding the complexities of nature and Cain says it is more than he could bare. Indeed it is when we make our environment an breeding ground for pandemics.


We're so sorry, Uncle Albert
We're so sorry if we caused you any pain.....

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY) top aide admitted that her team withheld the number of deaths related to COVID-19 in New York’s nursing homes to shield the Cuomo government from federal investigation and political scrutiny.

"The New York Post reported on Thursday that Melissa DeRosa, New York’s secretary to the governor, apologized to Democrat state legislators for “political” damage caused by the Cuomo government’s suppression of information related to nursing home COVID-19 deaths."

And the Emmy Award winner is.......


Congenital insensitivity to pain has nothing to do with autism it is genetic disorder. Maybe the author child has the before mentioned disorder. A person could die from it by not recognizing pain as a symptoms of something serious. Most people with autism are overly sensitive to pain and other things like noise,smell,feel irritation sensations.


The parent would have to decide, but the decision process is always similar. Back when diphtheria was common and nearly everyone was exposed to it, maybe everyone, and many thousands died of it every year, but there were also many severe vaccine reactions, you’d have to calculate which common effects of both would be worse. And consider what the rate was for all of them.

My daughter has said she doesn’t want the vaccine. I said it’s her decision. But I’m mainly accepting of it because she’s young, twenty, and very unlikely to have a severe or fatal case. Not impossible, but unlikely. The variants seem to be harder even on healthy young people, so I’ll keep an eye out on that. Natural immunity would probably last a long time, even if hough antibodies often fade quickly. T and B cell immunity are probably still in place. Sterilizing immunity is thought to last a year or two both from the disease and the vaccine, but resistant immunity from both often lasts for many years, as with SARS.

I think in most cases, not in all, children and those in their twenties are not in danger from Covid, so the disease might be a better choice than the vaccine. But our children’s inability to describe their symptoms of illness goes both ways, and inability to describe serious symptoms of Covid or anything else is just as bad as inability to describe symptoms of vaccine reaction.
