A Journey Through Autism, Pt. 7 (2006-07-12 - 5:12 p.m.)

Once again, I must apologize for the lack of updatiness. 1. I'm lazy. 2. There haven't really been any new developments in Stephanie's life, so I'm trying to figure out where to take this next.

But I have plenty of information to write about, so I should keep doing that.

By now, Stephanie has had 7 of the PK treatments, gradually increasing the dosage of glutathione each time. The only reactions have been a slight headache on Saturday of this past weekend (the treatment was on Friday morning), and I'm not convinced that the headache was caused by the injections.

Hopefully, in about three more weeks, we will do another "EDTA Challenge" to see what kind of metals are coming out of her system at this point.

I finally finished Evidence of Harm this morning at work! What a book! It is both informative and enfuriating at once. I plan to read it again, and share some tidbits in this journal.

Basically, the book chronicles the lives of several families effected by ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), and how they came to be known as the "Mercury Moms" and how one of them founded an organization know as Safe Minds. It also chronicles the deception and treachery of several government agencies, such as the CDC and FDA, and how they have been involved in some pretty blatant conflicts of interest with some big name pharmaceutical companies. Of course, they all deny this vigorously, in spite of the fact that there are documents proving it.

Anyway, I'll be getting to all of this soon. I'll try to be more regular, as well.

For those of you who have stumbled across this journal who have an interest in ASD, you really should get hold of this book ASAP and read it. Once again, it's called Evidence of Harm, and it's by David Kirby. You should be able to find it at Barnes and Nobles, or at Amazon.

For those interested in baseball, last night's All Star game was another great victory for the mighty American League (that's 10 straight undefeated years for the AL...perhaps the NL should get some players who aren't members of AARP??) Plus our own Michael Young of the Texas Rangers got to be the HERO!!! Woot!! He won the game with a two run triple in the top of the ninth when they were down to their last out. Then he got to make the last put-out in the bottom of the ninth. No suprise...he won the MVP award for the 2006 All Star Game. Congratulations, Michael!

That's it for now. Thanks for reading.

TTFN, y'all!!
