Vax Attack Strategies

I’ve been asked to gather info on ways to mitigate the negative health consequences of succumbing to the “vax”. This post will likely be a mix of links to resources, info, & commentary on the same. Hope this will be helpful in your search for medical freedom from tyranny, coercion, disability, & death!

I’m having computer challenges so am temporarily using a tablet to add some important links…

You want real science that will save your son?

The censored hypothesis of Antonio Chaves that you referenced below is an example of REAL SCIENCE that is being much more effectively squelched. WHY? Because it gives CREDIT to our side – not discreditation like much of the “bad attempts at science out of their fields” that is typified by the “microscope studies”.

Chaves has a brilliant explanation of censored science – why the vaccine damage seems to localize in the heart. Trust me – FAUCI KNEW THIS.

And that is NOT the only place that the vaccine localizes to do damage.

Remember the Swedish study by de Marinis that showed genetic incorporation of the Pfizer vaccine into LIVER CELLS? Yes. This vaccine is an extreme risk for your son.

Don’t wait for “proof” on that to be published and acknowledged. It may be YEARS for the truth to come out, unless there is a “putting down” of the Bidenistas and their depop scheme very soon. Fauci is bailing to PROTECT THE DEATH SCAM.

Your son has DUTIES he must obey here.

  • being alive to care for his future wife in 10 years, 20 years, 30 years
  • not throwing away his liver
  • waiting for the TRUTH to come out
  • honoring his mother by LISTENING TO HER

How long would he WAIT for his future wife? THAT IS KEY.

Is he listening to LUSTS to be with her now? I know where that’s coming from….

Here is the SCIENCE.

Your son needs to do what my great aunt did, when her fiance fled Germany for England – WAIT.

He needs to not do what the fiance did – become impatient and GIVE UP HOPE. He married another woman in England, and regretted it. He wanted to get back together with my great aunt, but she didn’t answer his letters, because she would not break up his marriage.

The spike protein does not belong in the bloodstream. Even Novavax damages the heart.

If your son gets COVID, he will get immunity. If he treats with ivermectin, it will prevent genomic incorporation, thwarting their plot.

There are other ways. Don’t give up hope in TRUTH and LOVE!!!

IN GOD WE TRUST.

Regretting taking the jab

This website has numerous testimonials by people who were vax injured:

https://www.realnotrare.com/

from one testimonial found here: https://www.realnotrare.com/post/sarah-cox

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish others knew these vaccine injuries are real, people are really suffering. Doctors don’t know how to fix us, we continue to be sick, and we are suffering while also being silenced. We matter too. We want help. We want answers. We want to feel better again.

& from another testimonial found here: https://www.realnotrare.com/post/amy-fosser

Q: What do you wish others knew?

That this is so unsafe. Your better off without it. It has killed so many people. It has injured an obscene amount of people and counting. Lose the job, refuse the jab. It isn’t worth it. I am a case among thousands that have been silenced and ignored by government and fake media. There is no reason to ban the injured. We are forgotten, abandoned and shamed. This is the emotional anguish that is hardest to deal with, not to be heard, told to shut up, forced to be hidden. This is unacceptable and inhumane…We are being told that we injured are spreading misinformation. HOW? To all those whom are accomplises in this forced ultimatum, shame on them. They are not protecting anyone, and they do more harm. They are liars and thieves. Stealing innocent people’s livelihood, leaving families in financial and emotional ruin. Trust the science they say. My injury is part of the science. Thousands of my vaccine injured warriors are part of the science.

From another testimonial, found here: https://www.realnotrare.com/post/john-parker

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Please listen to our stories and take good care of your health! Yes, the COVID-19 virus can be deadly, but the COVID-19 vaccines can kill or injure you as well. Get informed and weigh the risks and benefits before undergoing any medical treatment.

Why did our government officials, the CDC, and the media insist that these vaccines were “safe and effective” without warning us about the numerous adverse side effects? Are these vaccines truly helping people avoid getting sick and transmitting the virus? Why are they ignoring natural immunity and therapeutics while mercilessly threatening everyone to get vaccinated—when we don’t even know the long-term effects? Why are we being forced to take these shots and yet the manufacturers are not liable for hurting or killing us?

Finally, I would like to share this advice……“You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.” Take care and be-aware!

Depopulation is what it’s all really about!

Here is a post containing multiple links and an informed discussion about the depopulation aspects of the “vax”

Tools for getting Exemptions from “mandates”

Here is a template letter to modify in order to get out from under unlawful and unconstitutional “vax” mandates:

That letter & other templates can be found here:

https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/legal/vaccines-and-the-law

American Association of Physicians and Surgeons have multiple resources listed on a Covid-19 page here: https://c19protocols.com/

Here is where they recommend strategies post-“vax”:

Here is an item found at the above site:

Here is a site with multiple documents to use to advocate for your own & a loved one’s freedoms! https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/legal/vaccines-and-the-law

Here are a couple jumping off places if one desires to declare a religious exemption for any form of medical tyranny:

https://www.carriemadej.com/religious-exemption-letters

https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/legal/religious-exemptions

https://www.tc.columbia.edu/articles/2021/june/religious–medical-exemptions-from-covid-19-vaccine-mandate/

Here is an example of help in formulating a statement about one’s religious convictions about the “vax” from the above site:

Every time I try to write my personal statement I freeze up. Can you help me?

Sure, start by feeling the truth of your conviction. This is not a writing contest. Let go of your fear and see it as an opportunity to share your voice. You are being wronged and you have the right to state your noble position.

Here’s a starter to help you get going:

Everything about this vaccine goes against my sense (the sense God has given me) of what is the right thing to do.

Write a sentence for each of these (or come up with some more of your own) and connect them to your faith:

  1. Speed of the trials
  2. No long-term studies
  3. Shown to have harmful side effects
  4. No liability for pharmaceutical companies

If any of these resonate with you, connect them with your faith to have your voice heard.

Here is a statement in support of religious exemption from taking the “vax”:

Celebrating the Life of The Legal Genealogist’s Nephew Tim

from the posting below “That’s Tim there in this family photo from a reunion in 2002. The one on the left, in the wheelchair.”

http://www.legalgenealogist.com/2017/06/24/saying-goodbye-2/

I was just moved to tears by this family’s loss and the beautiful tribute this Aunt wrote about her nephew Tim.  She shared some of the things that made Tim unique & special…and none of them was about Special Needs!  May we all be remembered thusly by those we eventually leave behind, clinging to treasured memories & love…

Please lift up this family in prayer as they lay Tim to rest…may they all find comfort.

Blessings,

Valerie

Please visit the original post above to read about Tim as his Aunt has shared some of his legacy with us all…“We saw the shining spirit that was Tim.”

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

Thank you so much for sharing this tribute to your nephew. So sorry for your loss, but what a beautiful way to honor who he was. I have a special needs son who sometimes is only seen as Autistic…but, as you’ve so lovingly shown about Tim, is so much more than a label…or a chair.

May the Lord bless you and your extended family as you celebrate Tim’s life, mourn his loss, and share his legacy.

Thoughts on “I Can’t Do This Special Needs Life”

Image result for special needs life

from Bing.com image search for “special needs life”

It’s always with a bit of fear & trepidation that I ever decide to engage the special needs arena more directly than daily life requires, especially when it’s mandatory (like IEP time).  Well, this short article came into my inbox and some of her thoughts below really resonated…

I can’t do this; be a wife, a mom, a nurse and keep my tears behind dry eyes.  I had dreams of doing things in the medical field a lifetime ago. That didn’t happen for reasons upon reasons. But here I am, working (and living) in the medical field every day. I didn’t expect my patient would be my own child. Now that those long-lost dreams are alive and well in my everyday life all I can think of every moment is, “Please God, I can’t do this.”

from: http://www.keyministry.org/specialneedsparenting/2017/6/9/i-cant-do-this-special-needs-life

The bolded part in the above quotation is what got me back typing away here.  Through a series of seemingly random events I studied and graduated University with a Pre-Med Degree (BS, Bio-Medical Chemistry).  I did take the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test) and did marginally well but just never applied to Medical School.  At that time I was getting burned out on an extreme science emphasis like my basically Chemistry Major/Biology Minor Degree had demanded; I needed a break.  Being pretty eclectic in my interests & “motivations” (if one can even say I have the latter!) I was just not really interested in then pursuing medicine right out of my undergraduate program; I ended up pursing Christian Counseling instead…

The ironic thing is that I partially made this decision because I “wanted to have a life” and thought the extensive studies and training involved in Med School would mean many years before I would get much reprieve or enjoyment out of living.  Amazingly, before a decade had passed, I too, like the mom above, was facing the most challenging of all patients, my own extremely complex special needs child, and truly my life would never be my own again…

Frankly I don’t know how anyone copes with the challenges, upheavals, sorrows, rage, exhaustion, confusion, depression, isolation, and tediousness of it all without the Lord’s saving Grace & Peace!  These extensive trials have driven our family to the Foot of the Cross time & time again.  And even with His “Peace that passes understanding” there are many days when we just have to slog it out…& it ain’t pretty either!

Image result for comfort in suffering

from a Bing.com image search for “comfort in suffering”

I still honestly don’t know what to do with all the “stuff” that has been crammed down into my soul with minimal if any real “processing” time or resolution.  It is difficult for me to make sense of some of those special needs experiences without some outlet for said processing–which is one of the reasons for the existence of this blog at all.

Only considering my “special” son’s particular needs, here’s some of what we’ve faced:

  • Pregnancy problems/IUGR (Intra-Uterine Growth Retardation AKA small for gestational age)
  • Prematurity, Very Low Birth Weight, 2# 6 oz (qualified for SSI in the hospital)
  • Failure to Thrive
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Complex structural birth defects
  • 2 1/2 months in the NICU (Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit)
  • Ambulance ride to a different hospital for Open-Heart Surgery
  • Living apart from my husband for 3 months during heavy season of stress
  • Inability to directly breastfeed my son due to his weakness, so nearly 3 months of pumping breastmilk for him to be gavage fed via a tube in his nose, or alternatively to feed his twin when we were apart because I was in the hospital with his brother around the clock…
  • Open heart surgery at 2 1/2 months & ~4 pounds; the night beforehand being the only time our entire immediate family was in one room together, as in I was preparing myself/us for the possibility that our son would die & that pre-op visit would be all the time that we ever had together as an intact family…
  • Urinary Tract Infection delaying hospital discharge, I discovered this
  • Relatively short time at “home”; Life threatening respiratory infection (RSV) leading to an across state ambulance ride and re-hospitalization, and the admission X-Ray revealing an unexplained broken rib so “formality” inquiries; he had a second RSV hospitalization when about a year old
  • Breathing Machine (Nebulizer) with meds & chest percussions
  • Seemingly endless vomiting with practically every feeding and/or dosage of meds
  • Various Proprioceptive & Vestibular interventions, brushing, joint compression, etc (mostly done by me)
  • Problems with hernias requiring near emergency surgery during the post-op phase from Heart Surgery
  • Visiting Nurses
  • Medicaid
  • WIC
  • County Health Departments
  • Numerous Medical Specialists with sometimes conflicting advice
  • In Home Therapy visits (PT, OT, Speech)
  • In Home Teaching, in three different cities
  • Preventive Care Services, support for a family in near crisis
  • Being written up in our local paper because of the uniqueness of our situation
  • Authorized coverage for respite child care so my husband & I could get a reprieve, but an inability to use this service because we couldn’t find anyone capable of handling Josiah’s needs and our other two or three kids…
  • Major behavioral & emotional problems
  • Balance Problems & Hearing Loss needing Myringotomy Ear Tubes surgically placed numerous times to help correct
  • Autism Spectrum issues, but not diagnosed early enough nor classic enough to get real help from the school system
  • Sound Field System in School
  • Neuropsychological Testing numerous times, virtually all data was ignored by school “professionals”
  • Unspecified Neurological Impairments
  • Balance, Equilibrium, Processing, & Sensory Challenges
  • Unusual Therapies; Sensory Integration Therapy, Music Therapy, Art Therapy, Social Skills Group, etc.
  • Early-On Program
  • Developmental Assessment Clinics
  • Virtually no “typical” twin experiences, nothing like what “the books” say
  • Complex staged birth defect surgeries
  • Positional Head Deformity, requiring an orthotic helmet to reshape the skull
  • Moving our residence across the state to be closer to adequate medical care (husband’s job change & our near year separation, except for weekends, during the entire selling/moving process)
  • Second Open Heart Surgery at about 4 1/2 years with statements implying that another heart surgery would be likely within a decade (though a 3rd surgery in this domain still pends)
  • High Blood Pressure, Blood Pressure Monitoring Machine, spotty compliance
  • Numerous Medications over the years
  • Social isolation for our son in particular, but our family as well, due to the complex challenges & lack of awareness on other people’s parts
  • Years of car rides, mornings, announcements of plans changing, etc that resulted in ceaseless screaming, hitting, kicking, etc…=familial upheaval
  • Years of deliberate “button pushing” of all family members, being a deliberate atomic bomb within the family=massive stress
  • Lifelong Pediatric Cardiology care
  • Lifelong Pediatric Urology care
  • Massive battles with Special Education after having positive Special Ed Pre-School experiences
  • Only one month in “real school” with his twin brother
  • Having to “repeat” a year of Special Ed Pre-school due to educational negligence, incompetence, &/or indifference & my own weaknesses in entering the fray
  • Severe Learning Disability in Math, misinterpreted as global delay
  • Tutoring
  • Being told for years we needed Advocacy help, but rarely finding any available and/or affordable
  • Community Mental Health, home & center-based care
  • Insurance challenges in getting needed services covered/provided
  • Respite Care, both in home and center based
  • Chronic Bedwetting, well into the teen years
  • Multiple Sleep Disorders requiring CPAP usage
  • Congenital Double Vision, eventually “corrected” surgically
  • Student Aides/Para-Professional involvement only after major battles with Special Ed even though doctors insisted this was vital at the outset of regular schooling
  • Massive Educational & Disability Discrimination…any real recourse here???
  • Learning about free advocacy training and materials but when pursuing them discovering the programs were cut; same now in relation to job training issues
  • Having a Brain Tumor and Liver Masses discovered at virtually the same time
  • Getting Cancer evaluations
  • Human Growth Hormone deficiencies, but no real treatment because of other complicating issues
  • Being accused by school staff of inappropriate behavior that he didn’t do, and not allowing a parent to be present to assist him in processing the situation
  • Brain Tumor removal through the nasal passage, so no visible scarring!
  • Ultimately needing & getting a whole Liver Transplant
  • Lifelong Liver Transplant Clinic care
  • ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
  • Unexplained dizzy spells, EEGs don’t reveal reasons
  • “Hypoglycemia”
  • Emergency Room Runs for injuries & once for an environmental breathing issue that I thought meant my son would die in my arms before we reached the hospital
  • Pervert encounters in the park as a child and at school as an adolescent, with major emotional fallout
  • Spiritual battles that periodically resurface & blindside & overwhelm him
  • Continuing to help him navigate the world, including processing why even though he and his twin brother are a minute apart in birth times their life experiences are worlds apart

Image result for comfort in suffering

Well, my oldest son has mentioned on a number of occasions how I “never use my education”, since I’m not currently in the workforce.  It has honestly taken every aspect of what I’ve learned formally, inter-personally, spiritually, and experientially to navigate the extremely treacherous waters that Special Needs Parenting has led us through.  Some doctors have kindly indicated that I have a virtual medical degree by way of this personal parenting experience.  Whatever I have become, much of it is now attributable to being a Special Needs Mom.  It has become a burden, a badge of honor/courage, and ultimately a blessing.  In God’s Kingdom He brings Beauty for Ashes, Light from Darkness, and Hope beyond Despair!
