JRA stands for Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. In order to make this compact I will not go into too much detail. In short, my 17 year old daughter was diagnosed with it at the ripe age of 3. At around age 14 she began a remission. She went off the dreaded methotrexate she had been on for years. Some children "outgrow" it. I was hopeful she was one of them. Last summer she got a tetanus booster. (This is the ONE we do get.) I was told it was fine by her rheumatologist. Ever since then she has been complaining of aches and pains off and on. Well, by this summer she is in full blown active phase again. It could be coincidence that this happened following the tetanus shot. I'll never truly know... (She had a flare after her MMR booster at age 5, too. This is back when I wasn't armed with what I know now about vaccines.) Currently, she is taking methotrexate and naproxyn. Three days a week she is so sick to her stomach that she occasionally has dry heaves in the morning, she can hardly eat, and fights nausea. We're seeing our doctor here at home this coming week. If you think of it. Please pray for her. I know God is greater than this disease! (I think I've learned a valuable lesson, too.)
I recently found this information thanks to some helpful MOMYS. I will be purchasing the book Saying No to Vaccines: A Resource Guide for All Ages by Sherri Tenpenny in order to review this additional information on the vaccine issue. Dr. Tenpenny's website is very informative. There is a WEALTH of information on vaccines. I especially liked all the info on the HPV vaccine.

I referenced earlier in this blog about a book that was sent to me by the author. Sarah Honenburger wrote White Lies. The goal of this book is to raise awareness of vaccination injury. It is a very interesting read and I really enjoyed it. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of this book go here to purchase it. Please visit her website for more information.

Here is a link to an article written by a well-known neurologist. It is lengthy and technical, but in gathering information on vaccines, I believe it should not be overlooked. This gives us a glimpse of the effects of vaccines later in life. Please share this with people over 50 who receive the flu shot, too! It shocks me to think that there are posters up at my OB's office pushing the flu shot on pregnant women.

Here is an article about the rise of the occurrence of chicken pox in vaccinated children in TX. This isn't just happening there, folks. The danger of this vaccine is adult onset of the disease which is much more serious. Requiring booster shots is foolish. A real case of the disease would give life-long immunity, not just possible temporary protection. In addition, there has been a rise of shingles in small children who have been vaccinated. This is a vaccine of convenience. In the long run it is not a good choice for the health of our children.
