Right before his MMR shot, I said to the doctor, “I have a very bad feeling about this shot. This is the autism shot, isn’t it?” And he said, “No, that’s ridiculous. It is a mother’s desperate attempt to blame something,” and he swore at me, and then the nurse gave [Evan, quotee’s son] the shot. And I remember going, “Oh, God, I hope he’s right.” And soon thereafter — boom — the soul’s gone from his eyes.
