I have stared at this blank text box for a long time this morning. What can I say that hasn’t already been said?
If you haven’t been following along from the beginning, let me share some links and a brief update.
Couple days ago I see a link to this story on Age Of Autism in my news feed: Day 19: Chicago Hospital Locks Down Autistic Patient.
And then here were the stories as it followed:
The Case of Alex
Day 22 of Agony
The quick version…
Child has GI Distress, Mom seeks help at local ER.
ER restrains the child to a bed, not following proper restraint protocol, often doesn’t get to patient in time, resulting in him lying in his own vomit and feces. (He was kept as a patient in the ER bay for 2 weeks before being admitted to Loyola)
Mom says, Hey, are we going to treat this bowel issue or not?
Mom is told Autism is a mystery and we need to treat his MIND and then his body will follow.
*Insert outrage from autism community*
Loyola then hides behind HIPAA to avoid having to talk about this… Parents flood hospital with calls and FB posts. Loyola takes away the ability to view public comments on their FB page.
Loyola tells mom, “You will agree to everything in our care plan, or DFCS will take your child.
Mom feels obligated to comply, wouldn’t you?
Their treatment plan?? Send the kid to the wacky ward. No GI tests have been, or will be done. They will continue, instead, to dope the fucking hell out of him –you know… to heal his mind. So that his mind can magically heal his bowel.
Are you up to speed?
Thing is, this is becoming more and more common in our community.
There are several cases that I know of RIGHT NOW where parents were accused of Munchausen’s by proxy, or otherwise neglectful, and the kids were taken away by child services and are now being drugged at the whim of hospitals –even though there was plenty of medical documentation to back up the parents claims. In one case you have a DX of PANDAS, something that NIH recognizes as a real illness but that the AAP does not. So Boston Children’s Hospital stepped in and took the child away –and instead of treating her properly for PANDAS, they are just drugging the fuck out of her and took away the parent’s rights.
That is the new trend, parents!! Dare to question your doctor? Dare to tell them they are not treating your kid properly?? They just take your kid away.
Easier to avoid a law suit that way!
Autism is Medical. Say it with me, Autism IS MEDICAL, MOTHER FUCKERS.
No matter what some of you ignorant asshats THINK YOU KNOW about autism and bowel disease because you read an article on the interwebs once that said that Doctor in England LIED! –You took it as gospel without doing any research for yourself on the case, I know this by the stupid things you say that are complete urban legends surrounding the case. So let us set the record straight. Some kids with autism have a severe novel form of bowel disease (often when biopsied, vaccine strain measles are found in the lining on the intestines. This is fact. Not only did Wakefield find this, but the study has been replicated many times. Do a little fucking research!)
Maybe we in the autism community are not doing enough. We didn’t get to Alex’s mom before she ended up in the ER. We NEED to make sure that every parent out there knows that GI PAIN will cause your child to act out aggressively. …and that a child with GI pain needs to be on a strict diet. …and that a child with GI pain needs to go see one of the COMPETENT doctors in the Autism community who deal with this, Like Dr Buie or Dr. Krigsman. Interview with Dr. Buie.
We need to make sure that every parent out there knows that there is a war against us and against our children. We need to make sure every parent knows that if you tell your doctor that they are not providing adequate care that they will take your kids away. Seek MAPS doctors. DO NOT go into the Pharmawhore controlled hospital systems. Those doctors don’t give a fuck about you and your kids. Those of you who still love Western Medicine need to get this into your heads. They think we are desperate, attention seeking parents with Munchausen’s by proxy and they think our kids are “mentally” ill. We’ve gone back 60 years it seems and dear sweet Bernie is rolling in his grave.
Some of you may be thinking, “There has to be more to these cases! They just wouldn’t come in and take the kids!” You are wrong.
Blinders off people.
This is fucking abuse. This is fucking kidnapping. This is fucking NAZI medicine. And if Illinois DCFS would have done their JOB, FOR REAL, they would have pulled Alex out of that hospital and given him to his MOTHER to take him for real treatment. We cannot stand for this shit. WE CANNOT. Our kids will die, and we could end up in jail.
Start brain storming community. Because this is the future for all our kids, John Stone says it well.
We either need to get the mainstream media to pick this up and shame the mother fucking hell out of these doctors until they are forced to listen and learn, or we need to build our heavily armed compounds… NOW.
Edit to add: Let’s not forget this too, Maryanne Godboldo.
