Military and Vaccines - Page 2

post #21 of 143

Did I say that? I'm pretty sure that I was extremely careful to say that I have no idea what exactly caused my son's cancer, and I would caution to you to be very careful in misinterpreting my words. I have little to no patience for people who are intentionally nasty and antagonistic, particularly as it relates to my experience with my son. Do not put words into my mouth.

 

What I clearly said was that my experience with my son's cancer has caused me to really question everything that I put into my and my children's bodies. Nowhere did I make any sort of definitive statement as to what caused my son's cancer, just posing questions, like any parent in my situation does.

Medical.

Kyle, RN specifically asked you not to put words in her mouth. This started as a fun debate thread. I'm guessing a fun distraction from a crappy football game. But then a mother who lost a child chose to share her story with us. That changed the dynamic of the thread. This is the nature of a discussion. Please show respect for this. Any member who can't do that will be locked out of the thread.

Since I am from Washington, I thought it was an awesome football game. ;)

Wow, for someone who presumably has an advanced degree, you have a serious reading comprehension problem. You are continuing to put words into my mouth - nowhere did I say that I reject every doctor's opinion and don't put anything into my children's bodies. You are correct - that is quite a leap; one that you made, not me!

 

I question what goes into their bodies, and what they are exposed to. That questioning, for me, really started when my son was diagnosed with cancer, which is why I mentioned it. That's actually not that tricky to understand if you just read what I write and take it at face value. That questioning is certainly not limited to vaccines, and I happen to believe that questioning is an important part of the process of receiving medical care. All the good doctors that I've had the pleasure of meeting and collaborating on my and my children's care with value that trait, so I'm not sure why you're threatened by it.

Formaldehyde is used to formulate a lot of vaccines. They make a virus inert. They shut the virus down, so to speak.

What does formaldehyde do inside of our bodies?

Why did you leave the army for medical reasons? Did they give you too many vaccines? You had a bad reaction?

Uh. No. I was diagnosed with severe anxiety.

Vaccine-induced anxiety?

Upon further investigation, I realize that I made an erroneous assumption because of your thread entitled "I'm a biologist" that you have an advanced degree. It appears that, in fact, you are only studying evolutionary biology at the undergraduate level; that you do not appear to possess any kind of degree at this point. I also wonder how much of the rest of what you post is honest, because you are deliberately misleading people here as to the level of your education. It's pretty reprehensible to lie about military service, so I certainly hope that you are not lying about that too, though since you don't list that on your fb profile, I am seriously questioning whether you are being honest about it. Most people who have served in the military are pretty proud of it.

 

Also people, be aware that he is posting links to mothering threads on his facebook page, so don't assume that anything that you say will be respected or kept private. Trolling at its finest here.

@Kyle Rutherford. I removed one of your posts up thread. You may debate in this forum, but being dismissive and disrespectful of the loss of a child on our boards is not acceptable. I suggest you read our User Agreement that has already been presented to you.

It's not disrespectful to say that they are connecting dots that don't exist.

Find a way to say it that doesn't dismiss losing a child as merely "sucking" then. smile.gif I'm certain you are capable of finding better words. If the rules here are not for you, you are welcome to show yourself out. smile.gif

Considering that I've been in school for 5 years, have enough credits to graduate but choose not to and pursue a second degree (SMB and SBS) and I've worked in labs, I am a biologist. I have enough credits as any other graduate of the biological sciences. I just choose to continue my schooling for a second degree. Is that dishonest? To pursue another degree? I am working in a lab dealing with transgenic engineering as well. Nowhere have I been dishonest. I have never once stated I was a PhD candidate. I never once stated I was a masters student.

Didn't lie. I was in the military for a bit. Started getting severe panic attacks.

I didn't finish my 4 years. Why would I put it on my profile?

Yeah. Trolling. Sorry. Trolling is purposefully trying to piss people off.

Which I am definitely not trying to do.
