  • It sounds like she may have obsessive compulsive disorder. And, maybe ADHD. Sounds like she should be evaluated by a Psychologist.

  • Could just be some of her characteristics. If it's concerning they should see a doctor.

  • She should be evaluated by a doctor; it could be nothing, it could be something - definitely worth checking out.

  • There's a good chance that she suffers from the effects of vaccination. Vaccines cause wide-spread neurological disorders of all sorts and various degrees of severity. Love them, protect them, but NEVER INJECT THEM!

    It may be very helpful to consult a CEASE therapist:

    Autism - homeopathy, vaccination and autism website Dr. Tinus Smits
    a way to cure serious side effects of vaccinations and autism by homeopathy and a new long-term homeopathic treatment called CEASE/Inspiring Homeopathy.

  • It is widely known now the autism is NOT caused by vaccinations. Even the doctors that originally said it in a medical journal have retracted their statement. Do your research before spouting off outdated info.

  • ummm...truth crusader, what did they blame for this before vaccinations were invented?
    I think you need to lay off the anti-vaccination posts because kids are dying of whooping cough in California because of this crazy "anti-vax " crap.

  • kerp-I was thinking the same thing!! People have suffered from mental illness for a very long time. Hundreds of years ago they blamed the devil. I guess the 'devil' is vaccines now.

    Answer by layh41407 at 5:36 PM on Dec. 8, 2010

  • How old is she? And vaccinations are not the cause. Medical science has come far enough to know that mental problems are not caused by vaccinations. As the previous poster said, people have had mental problems long before vaccines were invented.
