I've been waiting for the day that I'd get an anonymous comment. I don't know why I've been looking forward to it...I guess it's because what I'm saying would matter...would have some sort of effect on people.
I got my anon comment.
It wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be. I got it because of this post and once I got it...I felt pretty crappy.
I already felt awful enough having to take my sweets to the doctors, having her get shots and blood drawn. I felt awful that I was the one choosing to put her through this. I felt bad that I was alone putting my sweets through pain.
I don't think we as mothers...or people for that matter, should be made to feel bad for choosing to vaccinate our children?
I'll admit, I have never really researched the pros and cons of vaccinating. The most researching I've done was buying Jenny McCarthy's book and it freaking me out to the point of returning it a few days later.
I was vaccinated. I'm still here. Happy and healthy.
If it weren't safe...would health care professionals really be doing such a thing considering they want us to be healthy?
Do you think making a mother feel bad about making a choice for her child makes that mother feel good? Do you think sending links to sites of parents who've lost their children really sits well with a mother coping with making the choice to cause pain on their child?
Do you think that typing and sending off your opinion behind an anonymous name makes you feel powerful and that you're making an impact on the world??
If you're able and willing to send off your thoughts...
Why not make it known who you are??
