I wrote this this afternoon. While I was white hot with anger. I considered deleting it, but thought better of it. I considered toning it down a bit, but thought, no. So will I regret it after hitting the publish button? Perhaps……
I am sitting here shaking with anger.
Oprah is on and that fucking moron Jenny McCarthy is spouting her sons recovery story.
I want to reach through the TV and wring her fucking neck.
Do you REALISE the damage you are doing!
MOMMY FUCKING INSTINCT. If she says that one more time I will lift the hulking enormous television and throw it through the window.
So, Ms McCarthy, all the parents without ‘recovered’ kids (apparently Autism is like being hit by a bus, you recover and then you have a little boo boo – WTF!?!?!) just don’t have MOMMY INSTINCT. MI for short. I am sure she has trademarked that one.
OMG. I just don’t love my kid enough.
My son is GFCF by default. LOOOOOOOOONG before the Autism was diagnosed he was milk free, LOOOOONG before I heard of the ‘autism diet’ we were trialling gluten free.
My kid did ABA, speech, OT, no artificials etc etc, but my kid is still Autistic. He will always be. The shit and toothpaste all over my walls is freaking testament to that.
But if I had MI ™ and a little more love for my child, he would be cured.
Oh Jenny. You, my dear, are delusional. Sitting there with your Pob (just like Miss Posh) talking about your son being broken In. Front. Of. Him.
I look at that kid and I CAN SEE THE AUTISM! I thought he was recovered. I hear the echolalia.
‘He says the most amazing Budda things’? You fucking idiot. He is mimicking. It is echolalia.
He is clearly maturing. It is clear that the therapy has made a difference. ABA does that.
Now she is talking about the MMR, apparently she had a little voice tell her it would cause Autism. Apparently the seizure her son had was preceded by the ‘little voice’.
Oh. My. Fucking. God.
My phone is going to be ringing off the hook tonight. I will be inundated with people asking me to help them recover their kids. Any one have Ms McCarthy’s phone number?
My son was diagnosed with Classic Autism. Classic, no language, screaming day and night. I was told he would never have functional language or toilet train. I was told to take him home and love him.
He is now doing amazingly. Thanks to therapy. Thanks to hard freaking work. But he still has Autism. He will always have Autism.
He is not recovered. You cannot recover from something that is – in my view – an inherited neurological condition. Minimize the extreme behaivours, work on other issues. Some kids will respond to therapy, some will not. Regardless of how much MI ™ their mothers have. Regardless of how much they love their child.
I read a book once that the mother basically beat her child every day and then sent him to boarding school. Now he is ‘recovered’. Do we endorse that shit? No.
I am sure that diet, supplements, therapy etc etc etc have helped numerous kids. Maybe even thousands. But in my opinion (remember I deal with parents with children on the spectrum every day so I have some experience) if your child is ‘cured’ then they were never on the spectrum in the first place.
The other chick, Holly Robinson whatever. Her I like. I agree with every thing SHE said.
But that McCarthy freakshow needs to be gagged. But first bitch slapped.
And Oprah. How could you.
Now excuse me, that child that I obviously didn’t love enough to cure needs me to go and wipe his arse.
