I am ahem this side of 40ish. I found my old vax card a few months ago.
I had more than what was recommended because we were back and forth through the state and British Virgin Islands. the # made me
I have way too many autoimmune disorders now and stay ill more than not lately.
Don't know if any of it can be attributed to any of them. But I think the arthritis link is worth persuing for me. I was 16 when first dx with it.
DS had a dx of adhd shortly after the mmr booster -like within the week.
I have a child who is vax injured from the Hep B. He is nor will ever be 'normal' per se,,
so fine.. harumph
Yeah, I saw a link stating how AD/HD and schizophrenic disorders could be related to vaxes in some cases. I have both. I also read that asthma could be related. MY husband has AD/HD and asthma.
Yes we are so fine. My husband can be so
I don't know, I just guess (and it's a guilt thing i'm trying to work out within myself) I feel that when I stand up to my ma that I betray her. She is not a people person, she doesn't trust people much. She is very nervous, anxious, and very fake to other people, even my two sisters. But she (seems to be) at ease with me, and she feels she can just let go with me, all the good and the bad.
I've been reading up about dysfunctional families since I started this thread. She can't let herself "go" and be "at ease" with anybody, it seems, accept me. My dad can be very controling and irritable sometimes. My mom grew up in an alcoholic household. Lot's of issues there, she doesn't talk about much though. She says she hates alcohol though. Her mom was very...um...weird. I can't imagine how it would be to grow up in a house with a mental mother and and alcoholic father. I think she "releases" all of that controling and negativity on me, because she feels at ease with me, and it's just so built up.
Ok, I think I need to go elsewhere to finish my theraputic family dysfunction discussion.
But anyhow, I was just saying that to say that that's why I think I have a hard time just standing up to her. Not to say I won't, cause I'm not getting vaxes.
She just doesn't respond to subject changes. I've used that tactic many many times. She's very confrontational like that...just to me though.
