Individual sporting activities and “non-traditional” team sports lead to wonderful learning experiences for children. Keeping your kids active and interacting more with peers are both valuable to a young child’s development. I was a competitive figure skater growing up – I competed individually and as part of a team – so I had the best of both kinds of sporting experiences.
Directors of the Elizabeth Birth Center for Autism Law and Advocacy (EBCALA), parents and vaccine-injured children will hold a press conference on the steps of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (717 Madison Place, NW in Washington, DC) on Tuesday, May 10 at 12:00 PM to unveil an investigation linking vaccine injury to autism. For over 20 years, the federal government has publicly denied a vaccine-autism link, while at the same time its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has been awarding damages for vaccine injury to children with brain damage, seizures and autism.

What’s wrong with that picture? I just turned 45 years old, I am 45 pounds overweight (poetic justice in those numbers) and my business has been on hold for the first several weeks of the year. If I keep doing what I am doing, I will not be alive in 20 years to play with my grandchildren, grow old with my husband and see my children’s success in their lifetime. And I really want to be here, in a way that I have not focused on before. Maybe it is that big number, 45, which suddenly looks a lot closer to 50 than it ever did before. Maybe it’s just realizing that I am cheating myself. I don’t have the energy or enthusiasm I used to have for anything.
