Autism and Vaccine link to be proven tomorrow in courts

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. This investigation, based on public, verifiable government data, breaks new ground in the controversial vaccine-autism debate.

How about you? Do you have a morning ritual? With two young kids at home, I find the only way to get anything accomplished in the morning is to get up before they do. That can be a challenge some mornings, but maybe if I knew what I had to look forward to, it would motivate me to get up!

Starting Over, Again

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.

Maybe it’s just realizing that I am cheating myself. I don’t have the energy or enthusiasm I used to have for anything.

Brad and I had spent time doing some good planning for the business and were looking forward to doing some personal planning as well. We were trying to be creative about making change without overwhelming ourselves with everything that needs to get done. Jenny, our “inner” organizer is brilliant at helping us to manage the overwhelm and be clear about what we really need.

Then on New Year’s Eve I received a phone call that my beloved stepdad was in the hospital again
