I'd like to know which /what type of test you had, since metal toxicity test results generally aren't "positive or negative."
I'll just bet you'd like to see the results. But you can't--they are confidential. Here's something to consider: I'd like my son to have a degree of privacy as he grows older and begins surfing the net. I'd hate to see a description of my
poops online for all the world to see, I'm assuming he'd feel the same. Poops aren't the same as bloodwork test results, granted, but I think it's okay to keep it offline. Leave it at that.
When I said "negative" it meant that he did not have levels of any heavy metals deemed unsafe or toxic. That is just going to have to satisfy your inexplicable curiosity. Your fixation on my son's test results defies reason. Why do you care so much? So you can call me a "liar?"
What is really so bizarre is that when my son was first diagnosed way back when, the autism=mercury poisoning hysteria was in its infancy. I wanted to blame something for his autism, so I asked for the metals screen to be done, along with a whole battery of blood tests for all the docotrs involved. Imagine my dismay and confusion when it was ruled out.
I did not get a chance to go back and look if you posted your son's story. I am very curious how he recovered. Never know, it may help somebody here. After all, that's what forums like these are about.
And I think it is silly to think that using your real name will bring hate mail your way. Majority of moms and dads here are mainly concerned about their children and not how to send hate mails to other parents. Well, maybe with the exception of a few who seem not to be wanting to give up the negativity. I've been on this forum for only a month and you guys definately stand out!
I'd love to post what I did for and with my son, but it's pointless at this stage of the game. Other commenters would just pick it apart, call me a liar, tell me he isn't even autisitc, and demand to see test results (see above). Who would listen anyway? I'm a liar and a shill, according to some other "standout posters."
I still like to give other parents specific advice, support, and congratulations when they talk about their success with their children.
As for a risk of hatemail? Better safe than sorry. You can plainly see the anger directed toward me, and it's not a risk I am willing to take. srinath may use his "real name" (is he like Cher, Liberace, Bono, et al? Only one name is necessary?) but very few
others do. Only one other person on this forum knows my real name and email address. Let's all play a fun game and try and guess who it is! Hint--it is not Winnie.
