From as far back as I can remember I did not ‘fit in’ with my neurotypical peers at ...Continue Reading →
When Andrew Wakefield was disbarred and his paper claiming the MMR vaccine causes autism were disproven that should technically have been the last we heard from him.
Andrew has found a welcoming and desperate community, the parents of autistic children.
They want answers as to how their children became autistic and he’s more then happy to share his views with them, views that have been ...Continue Reading →

An individual named Hugh Gilbert whom I cannot find registered as a qualified professional of a scientifically proven method anywhere what so ever has been posting on Facebook (screenshot attached) asking parents to contact him for a ‘treatment’.
He wishes them to bring their children to his house so he can manipulate the soft tissues in the base of their neck to ‘heal’ vaccine ...Continue Reading →
I want you to know I SEE you.
I know that this morning you contemplated not having a shower as the washing up was piled in the sink despite your husband/older child’s promise to do it.
I know you skipped that shower and had a quick wash in the sink.
I know you did that so you could wash up and make your kids breakfast quickly ...Continue Reading →
Due to information given to me today by a concerned US citizen I launched an independent investigation into a clinic in Tennessee called Cool Springs Family Medicine..
This clinic claim to be holistic healers, and have made the detrimental decision to state that they will no longer supply parents with vaccinations as, according to their website and blog, they cause autism.
This is blatant misinformation and fear mongering, they are risking an outbreak of highly infectious disease causing dreadful harm ...Continue Reading →
It’s Tourettes Awareness month and I must confess to not knowing as much as I would like to know about the neurological difference that can provide great challenges to those affected by it.
We have all seen the stereotypical verbal tics some people with Tourettes can display, we may even have laughed along with them in tv shows as they blurted swear words and random phrases.
Sadly, due to ignorance of the public perception of Tourettes , the physical tics are often ...Continue Reading →
As an autistic and mother of autistic children I once allowed my now ex partner to discreetly film my sons meltdown.
In the three minute video I was hit thirty three times, my sons distress was complete and it was heartbreaking to see.
The short was shown to the paed (with no volume and without my sons knowledge) to show the level of his distress in ...Continue Reading →
You may have seen the posts on Facebook about the untimely death of four year old Harry due to medical neglect.
I’ve been meaning to delve deeper, to inquire of the attitude of the hospital, the despair and courage of Harry’s family.
Yet still I have the devastating knowledge that no matter what the outcome of investigations, no matter what the compensation this family receive, this little boy died at the wrong time.
Harry was a happy fun loving little ...Continue Reading →
To those who say they hate autism….
You say it loud and clearly that you hate, resent, and even despise autism.
That you hate autism for robbing your child of a normal life.
That you hate autism for not giving your child a voice.
That autism took everything good away from you…like your holiday gatherings, your
vacations, your friends, your family, even your spouse.
To you that was all autism.
You will also state that your child may have autism but it’s not who they are.
You will ...Continue Reading →
