Oh shit…..literally. What the doctor didn’t tell me about Autism


Thankfully, we haven’t dealt with any bathroom issues for yeeears but I still remember like it was yesterday…

Oh shit…Literally.

If you get grossed out easily and your gag game is weak, like myself, then you may want to skip this blog. It’s actually a pretty shitty blog anyhow. I mean, It’s really a dump of a blog. Hehe ok ok you get the point. Bug’s bathroom humor is rubbing off on me.

Anyways, back to the point. This blog is about something ALL autism parents and caregivers know a lot about. I’m SHIT talking.

Just the word poop makes me uncomfortable. I’m the kinda girl who knows that we all do it, but I reeeeally don’t feel like we all need to sit around and talk about it. It just figured that I’d be thrust into the poo game with no warning like I was. Did you know about this shit when your kiddo was diagnosed cause I sure didnt!

A LOT of kids with autism have gut issues and sensory issues that ultimately lead to all sorts of ‘fun’ shit issues. When Bug was little he used to paint the walls with it. In the autism world we call these ‘works of art’ Poo-casos. Ya know, like Picasso but with poo. Yea, I know it’s freaking gross and disgusting but sometimes ya gotta laugh to keep from crying, ya know?

Anyways, Bug’s shit show wasn’t always limited to the ever famous Poo-caso. He also liked to smear it into the carpet and run his trucks through it. And this shit wasn’t like regular shit either. Imagine the worst smelling smell imaginable. Ok got it? Now combine that with something that smells even worse and you’re getting close to the ballpark. Because of the toxic burden so many of our kids carry, their little bodies and digestive systems really take a beating and the ‘shit shows’ are a result of this. Diarrhea is pretty common in kids with autism. Ugh that’s another one of those words I just do not like  to even write but it is what it is. Shit.

So one of the ‘fun’ parts of these little shit parades is the moment that you realize you have to make a serious make it or break it decision. Do you clean the kid first or the bedroom? And if you pick the bedroom, what do you do with the child covered in poo while you clean said bedroom? And if you clean up the child first, how do you keep said child away from the shit parade? These are the questions you ask yourself as an autism parent.

Which shit is more important?

Hope If ya had a shitty day I made ya smile! Just remember, we are in this shit together!

An open letter to the world from an Autism mom


To whom it may concern (and it concerns EVERYONE!!),

April is autism awareness month. I don’t know how much you know about autism, but as the proud parent of an almost 13 yr old son who has this diagnosis, I would like for you to take the time to read, and to really absorb my words. Put yourself in our shoes. Let yourself feel what we feel.

My son was born into a world that wasn’t prepared for him. And honestly, he was born into a world that doesn’t deserve his perfectly pure heart and soul. He is so much more than most people will ever see. I don’t like to say that I’m thankful for autism, because with all it has robbed my son of, I’m not, but damn am I ever grateful that I was blessed with this bright, beautiful child. He has taught me what is really truly important in life- unconditional love and standing up for what’s right. So that has become my life’s mission.

What I want, and what we need most for our community, is REAL awareness and action to back it up. I want to see worthwhile, transparent research that isn’t done by big pharma and CDC officials who bounce back and forth from Merck. I want to see the CDC be held responsible when they hide data from the people. I want to see world wide programs for wandering and drowning education. I want to see Autism signs on every single street where our families live. I want to see insurance policies that cover REAL non-toxic help for our kids. I want to see schools, teachers, police, healthcare workers, and firefighters that are all properly  trained to understand individuals with autism. I want to see jobs and helpful communities for adults with autism. I want to see parents educating their neurotypical kids that it’s OK to be different. I want them to teach their kids to be understanding, and patient, and to treat our kids with respect. I want to see help. I want to see change. I want to see autism awareness and ACTION!

The world wasn’t prepared for 1 in 68….but here we are. It’s beyond time to make this right.

Our kids deserve it!!!

Crazy Anti-vax Mom or Educated Mom who Vaccinated and then learned better…


 Ok, so every now and then on my Facebook page I like to do a little informative ‘about me’ post to catch everyone up on who we are, what we do, how we feel, and all of that good stuff! I’m usually fairly vague due to character limit, etc so I was thinking it would be a great idea to do a more in depth one on here as well since we’re inevitably at the starting line of a new year. Since the beginning of the existence of ‘Rockin Mom’s World’ I have censored and filtered myself. HEHE I know that’s probably hard for some of you to believe because I’m already pretty damn blunt but I actually do tone it down a lot to avoid offending people. Well that shit is all over because I’m opening the flood gates and talking vaccines this evening!

I saw a saying somewhere that said something like “The artist is not responsible for offending the viewer”. (If you know who said that lemme know and I will most definitely credit that genius!) That quote really caught me off guard, and stuck with me, like a good satisfying meal of pure factual truth. I’m not responsible for how you feel. How freeing! All I can do is be myself and let the cards fall where they may. So that’s whats up! I’m letting the damn cards fall, ya’ll.

I’m gonna be honest. I usually try to win people over with my down home small town charm and sweet demeanor before I tell them our son was vaccine injured. It makes it so much easier to convince people I’m not crazy…yea, as sad as that is, that’s actually something I have to do on a pretty regular basis, not because I actually AM crazy, but because saying your kid was injured by vaccines makes you an easy target. It can be a dangerous position to be in. I get a lot of people that think that I’m just downright stupid and that I’m some daft, naive Jenny McCarthy wannabe who gets her information from afternoon tv shows and fashion magazines. They think I want someone or something to blame. They think I’m so broken that I’m delusional. They don’t want to know that, in all actuality, I’m very well educated and extremely well versed on vaccine injury and everything my son has been through. I’m a fierce, kick-ass autism momma bear who will fight to the death for her cub.


Ya heard that?? :) Ok! Moving on!

All I can really do at this point of our lives is let it roll off my back. I don’t try to win them over anymore, and sometimes I hate that I ever even bothered before. So many of these people already have their minds made up about us before I ever even have the chance to open my mouth to tell them I don’t give two shits what they do with their kids, I just want to keep my right and freedom to do what I KNOW is right for my own child. A lot of people don’t take the time to let me explain that I fully understand that their personal experience with autism may be completely different than ours. I don’t believe every autism diagnosis is due to vaccine injury and a lot of people don’t listen long enough to hear me say so. They dont hear me when I try to explain that the long and short of it is that I will always fight for my right to protect my son from the things in life that can hurt him. I am his mother and that is my job and purpose in life. They wanna say I’m crazy. Oh wtf ever, go ahead if it makes ya feel good.

I’ve been through a lot in my life and I have some pretty fucking thick skin, but let me tell you, the sting never quite goes away when someone dismisses something you have WITNESSED, and when they act like what your child went through is a lie. I can deal with it though, I’ve unfortunately had lots of practice over the years. In our experience, we have had people be downright nasty and hateful to us. I have actually been threatened simply for telling Bug’s story. That’s insane, ya’ll….do you realize how fucking sad that is? This is what families like mine deal with and this is why so many of us are still quiet about what we’ve experienced. People are scared to be berated and ridiculed after they have been through so much already. They whisper about their stories in private messages to avoid the wrath of the pro-vax trolls in the online threads, or even to avoid their own judgmental family members. I talk to countless families every day who share our story to a tee. There are just far too many common threads to ignore.

I know in my heart and soul that the nasty things people say and do are all things someone should NEVER have to deal with after all our family has been through. Even through all of the bullying and hate our family has absorbed, we still don’t consider ourselves to be victims. We are fighters and we are kickass warrior parents who will never stop fighting for our son’s health. We owe him that and so much more.

As I said before, I’m not some naive conspiracy theorist like some people would like to think. I trusted vaccines before my son’s health decline but after watching him go through what I can only describe as pure hell, I have spent the past 10 years researching vaccine injury, natural health, Big Pharma, and the CDC. We watched our once 100% healthy son have a bad allergic reaction and incur autistic behaviors directly after his vaccinations. He was also over vaccinated at one point. In my autism resources page of this site I have compiled a plethora of reputable autism vaccine studies, congressional hearing footage, and all sorts of other highly regarded information that points to a link between vaccines and autism. There are Doctors, Neurologists, Gastroenterologists, Nurses, Congressmen, etc that believe there is indeed a link. Hell, the CDC’s own highly respected whistleblower epidemiologist, Bill Thompson, admitted that the CDC actually HID a vaccine autism link!! Think he’s crazy too? Well he is still employed at the CDC so what does that tell ya? And huge drug company and vaccine manufacturer, Merck, has their own set of whistleblowers. Imagine that! They’re in court for allegedly lying about the efficacy of their mumps vaccines. And speaking of big pharma, do you realize you can’t sue them or your doctor if your child dies or is injured by a vaccine? The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 ensures the safety and immunity of drug manufacturers when tragedy happens. If a vaccine hurts you or your children you have to go to vaccine court where an unlimited supply of our hard earned tax dollars pay the best attorneys in the country to beat you in court. You won’t win…unless the RARE chance that your parents are genius scientists like miss Hannah Poling’s parents. She was compensated for VACCINE INDUCED AUTISM ( hmm isnt that funny since supposedly there is no link!)…This info is well concealed because well, they WERE compensated. Canaries in the coalmine….Look up The Canary Party, Thinking Moms RevolutionAge of Autism, and Regarding Caroline if you are interested in going deeper into this never ending rabbit hole. There is a whole big game of follow the money that you get into when researching vaccines. The conflicts of interest are just too big to ignore. It’s truly worth the research. Vaccines are not 100% safe. Nothing in this world is 100% for the entire population. My son is proof of this fact. He was covered head to toe in hives and he banged his head and bit himself and others for months. He was in severe pain, you could see it on his face and hear it in the blood curdling screams that he screamed for months on end. He lost his words and all eye contact and the the desire to be touched. This was a child who, before his vaccines, was saying words as big as ‘nutrigrain’. He was completely healthy and talking and then he wasn’t. It was like a switch had been flipped. The doctor convinced us that it wasn’t the vaccines so we trusted him and we vaccinated again and again… and we lost everything we had worked so hard to get back….all over again.

This happened. A lot of people don’t want me to tell you this but it’s the truth. I have nothing to gain by saying this. If anything, I have everything to lose. Being shunned isn’t something my family particularly enjoys but we know its not right to keep your mouth shut when you KNOW something is wrong. I couldn’t sleep at night if I didn’t tell people about this. This isnt just about a debate to me. This is about morals and what is right. This isn’t some “crazy anti-vax” story you are reading. People like to throw that term around to make parents like myself look like we’re wack-a-doos that have come unglued. A lot of people’s paychecks depend on making people like me look crazy. In fact, there are actually people that get paid to argue with people like me on social media! It’s all just so damn insane I can’t begin to squeeze it into one post..

And back to the “anti-vaxxer” crap, something I’d also LOVE to point out, our child was vaccinated over twenty times. That is NOT anti-vaccine. We were just regular parents who trusted the system and it let us down, and has ultimately turned us into ‘the enemy’ when all we want in the world is REAL help for our kids and the right to keep toxins out of their bodies. I hate to admit this but we didn’t care until it happened to us. I stand up because I want people to care. I want people to fight for freedom of choice when it comes to our children’s bodies. I do it for my son’s future.

Pilot Pens

Today I’m reviewing some great office supplies by Pilot. Pens, to be more specific. I’ll start off by telling you a little about the different ‘B2P Bottle 2 Pen’ pens. As the name says, they are pens made out of recycled water bottles which I think is pretty freakin’ spiffy! They’re refillable, retractable, and they come in all different colors ( B2P Colors Multi , B2P Gel ) and also a ball point model ( B2P Ball Pen ). Im a picky pen person and I’m definitely a fan. They just feel nice in your hand. That’s a good thing in my book.

The Frixion clicker is the next pen I want to tell ya’ll about. It’s actually an erasable gel pen! I didn’t even know they made such a thing. The erasable pens I used to have in school weren’t exactly ‘erasable’. I can remember tearing my paper up when I was trying to erase my mistakes. The Frixion clicker is nothing like the old erasable pens, it actually erases just like a pencil mark would. I’m definitely impressed with this one.

The Frixion highlighter is pretty much exactly like the Frixion erasable pen only in a highlighter version. It erases extremely well!

Last, but definitely not least, the Acroball Fine Pt pen was fabulous as well. It feels great in your hand and provides effortlessly smooth writing.

Another important New autism study that Mainstream media should be reporting

The public is not readily given accurate knowledge where autism is concerned. This makes things very difficult when trying to make fully informed decisions as a parent.
