I was that mom. The kind that really, really, really tries hard not to judge, but can’t help it, due to her own insecurities. I thought I knew better. I have three kids, so I know plenty, right? A girl, two boys, all the bases covered. And TWINS to boot. I know stuff.
I was so, so wrong.
I am only bringing this up because I brought it up in my comments on FB. I promise we won’t talk about vaccines again. Or at least, only in passing.I thought, these selfish girls, not vaccinating their children because they subscribe to this crazy theory that somehow it hurts children. How dare they endanger MY children, who are fully vaccinated, who I hold down while they cry and get stabbed with multiple needles every couple of months.
I trusted my doctor implicitly. He was my doctor from birth, after all. MY birth, not my childrens' birth! I happily drive 30 minutes for every single visit, with three kids, because I can’t imagine trusting my precious ones with anyone else. If HE thought this vaccination schedule was the way to go, who the heck was I to think differently? Had *I* been practicing medicine for 30 years? Did *I* go to med school? That's what I paid HIM for!Yet the moment this boy was diagnosed, from the very first book, internet article, contact on the internet, the first thing always always mentioned as the villain are the vaccines. And when you do any digging, at all, it is so clear that these babies are being poisoned with mercury.
Now, will vaccines hurt every single child, of course not. But for so many, 1 in 54 American boys, who have this genetic predisposition to become autistic somehow, who are maybe sick when they get vaccinated or get too many vaccines at once, it wreaks havoc on their little brains and their guts and they are not ever, ever the same. And any reading at all you do on the topic, you will find these very basic facts.
So just so you know, I was a very loud proponent of getting your babies vaccinated, on schedule, and basically doing whatever your doctor thinks is best for your kid. A “necessary evil”, I called it.
I was very, very wrong. For those of you I judged, I am sorry.
