First off:

There is no disagreement about the autism-vaccine link: the doctor who invented the data to support his fictional theory has been completely discredited.

Otherwise, I'm a resilient person. I deal with what happens pretty much the same way I deal with practically everything else: from the hip, as it comes.

My 12 year old is autistic but I don't look at him as a "curveball". He's my biggest blessing... I carry a lot of stress though, just worrying so much for him and his future.

I handle things probably much better than most but I'm just naturally a worry wart.

Life has lots of curveballs.  I guess I handle them by talking to friends or family and praying.  Talking to God always seems to make things easier to handle   :)

I heard the same thing recently, but still see people citing vaccines as the cause. I don't get it.

Considering how long behaviourism has persisted after being discredited before the first research was published... I'm not going to pretend I'm surprised at the lack of uptake for new information...
