Crazy, Man. Crazy

I was just going to watch a second of this, and then got sucked in. It almost looks like a Steve Martin bit -- if it weren't so shockingly sad.

Bless her heart and her husband's. Once worked with a student who received a routine baby vaccine and went from "normal" to severe and profoundly handicapped. Frightening as a parent, especially when you are asked to read the percentage of abnormalities vaccines can cause, then you are asked to sign acknowledging the risk and give the go ahead. Faith is about all we have some times.

Thanks for sharing, as it reinforced how grateful I am/should be for my health and that of my loved ones.

Crap, I'm supposed to go get the flu shot tomorrow, and now I'm freaking out.

Was this her first flu shot? In other words, if I've gotten a flu shot before and didn't have this happen to me, and I safe.

The fact that she can run and talk normal has to be the most unusual thing I've ever seen.

So very sad.

I heard George Bush allowed experimental vaccinations that could possibly cause this.

Her poor husband.

He went from trophy wife NFL cheerleader to that.

That would be like winning the lottery and then finding out you have 4 months to live.

Before this video, I had decided not to get the flu shots, swine or otherwise. After watching this woman struggle with her everyday movements it confirms that I won't.
My daughter after the second round of pertusis shot when she was a baby started having siezures. I was told she was grand mal epiletic. I refused to believe it and refused the 3rd in the series of pertusis shots and she never had another siezure. Saw a report on tv days later of a little boy who did the same but he had the 3rd one and became a vegetable with his mother on a talk show.
Just saying it is ok to question what someone puts in our bodies. It is ok to ask questions and it is ok to say no.
No one should make it mandatory to get the shot. You have a right to say yes and no. Make the best decision for you.

BTW: 1:24 you are a jerk you should have just signed that way.
Thanks B for bringing this to light.

Kudos to the Newark VFD for saving that guy's life that I just read about on the online Mess Update. Good job, NVFD.

That said, I had already decided to not get the shot(s) this year. I'll take my chances and hopefully not be sorry. I might have been sorry if I did too.

I have a dear friend with two (now adult) children who contracted MS. One has recently passed. My friend said her doctor, who vaccinated the children when they were young, thought the shots caused the MS. Her family was not the only group of his patients who had members get MS. I think there are theories of childhood vaccinations causing autism, and a passel of other illnesses as well.

It's a crap shoot people. Me? I just pretend I'm in a covered wagon, traveling the Butterfield Trail. I haven't seen any doctors or hospitals or pharmacies for miles. I'll just let nature take it's course.

In the early 80's a friend of mine developed Gullian-Barre's syndrome after receiving a flu shot. He was paralyzed for months in the hospital. After his release, it took almost 2 years to recover although there are still residual effects. He was an athlete in college and in very good shape prior to the shot.

I wonder if it's because the serum has the preservative Thimerosal? It is a neuro-toxin. They used to use it in regular child vaccinations, but stopped when folks started wondering if there was a link to the increase of incidence of autism, ADD etc. and this preservative. They continue to use it in all flu shots and the swine flu shots.

My favorite part was where she says, "It's great isn't it. Then ughghy ughughy."

Thanks for posting that- now THAT is funny!

Do horrific things entertain humans due to a natural fear of having the same happen to us? Any "abnormality" which can be contemplated applies here. The affliction, be it by genetic default, accidental, reactions to meds, foods, self-infliction or combo, affects those who fear it most...it is then the effects emanate from humans as ill-humor and immature remarks and conduct. Faulkner wrote, "We cling to that which has robbed us" (Thin Gray Line). So as beings we cling to the fear of the unknown, the unexplained, the possibility. "But for the Grace of God, 'ere go I." Grief, and we wonder why the young of our species behave so poorly. Adults are laughing? And the poor hubs went from cheerleader to the one he loves with a health problem caused by what could not be controlled...nerve hit, D-O-N-E.

4:04 You are calling me retarded as you write the non-word "everybodies"?

Also, 4:04, you might want to "google" Thimerosal and do your own research. Enjoy the 'crow'.

Anyone who would get a flu shot fails the critical thinking test.

This is some mighty responsible reporting. Media in the spring: "You're going to get swine flu and die!" Media in the fall: "You're going to get the swine flu vaccine and be disabled for life!" but also accompanied by "There isn't enough swine flu vaccine for everyone!"

Hey, but just the facts, right?

Oh and 6:40 anonymous, you meant to say "Anyone who wouldn't get the flu shot because of a story they saw on the local news fails the critical thinking test."

But follow M-M's advice. You'll find the Wikipedia article on the thimerosal "controversy", where you will find among other things: "Three large-scale controlled observational studies have been reported on this issue; none have found an association between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism."

I wonder how the "Dark Ages" began? (I think we are seeing the beginnings of it now)

Natural selection will weed out the idiots eventually. (Unless we keep forcing people to get vaccinations and providing free medical care to the "economically disadvantaged")

Hey Xan, 6:40 here.

Not that reality ever invaded your simple mind, but:

A) I don't and haven't owned a TV for 25 years. Your assumption that I formulate my opinions based on a local news story makes an ass of you, but not me thank you very much. Project much, do you?

B) My belief in my statement is based on the very real (30 years without seeing a doctor) results I have obtained from proper nutrition and letting my own immune system work as it was designed.

C) I am probably twice your age and could out-work and out-think you without even trying.

D) STFU when you don't have a clue of what you speak. That's just common sense, something which you obviously don't possess.

Thanks, run along now and get your little shot to allay your little fears you caught from watching too much TV.

Just a guess, but are you overweight by any chance?

Oh, almost forgot: Kicking your ass would probably take less time than taking a whiz.

DocLogic said...

So for every story like this, how many people didn't die of the flu who got the shot.

No one will ever know, but you never hear the stories about the thousands of people who don't die because they got the shot.

Dr. Leigh Vinocur from the University of Maryland Medical System stated on the October 16, 2009, airing of "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News that this case was psychogenic and neurologists were using it as an example of psychogenic dystonia.

Have a funny feeling that isn't the only affliction that girl has endured- bet you wouldn't have to dig too deep to find bulimia, anorexia...

As for the thimerosol and other boogeymen created by kooks over vaccines. A non issue-which may cause a LOT of needless suffering.

Dude I just watched it and I cant stop laughing...

OK then, one in a million. must be a couple of hundred people world wide getting this disorder every year. What do the fruit bats blame it on when there is no flu shot involved?
