I'm super new here but I recently went through an incident that I can't seem to get over completely...
I deleted my facebook today.I had been thinking about it anyway but I was just tired of being upset and or/my feelings hurt by people I would otherwise have no contact with.
The most recent incident was with a friend of mine who is pregnant and commented she was going to vaccinate her baby(which is fine with me,I've been trying really hard to not push my views on people and just let them do what they feel is best for their children.I used to get really upset when people would just choose not to breastfeed and things like that.Anyway,people just started chiming in about how vaccinating is the ONLY option and it's good to see that she's making GOOD decisions for her baby already.Anyway,I hadn't planned on arguing just stating 'to each their own' or something like that.Then people started saying 'well I don't want my kid to catch something from an unvaccinated kid before mine can get shots' etc etc and someone even said 'I vaccinate because I love my kids' which said to me that I don't love my son because I don't vaccinate.I don't know a ton about vaxes but I started throwing out what I do know since they thought they were know it alls. Anyway,it ended up a big mess and I apologized for how I acted..I should have just kept my mouth shut!
After hearing that I'm wrong from so many people,it really makes a me wonder...even though I know better!They just kind of made me feel bad!!My son is 4 and after doing the first 2 hep b vaxes(which I didn't want to do but my husband wasn't on board at that point,I belonged to a forum at the time and had started looking into vaxes)..we stopped vaxxing. Just after being criticized so much,I kind of feel like a bad mom! I ended up posting on my fb about how I bf'ed,bw'ed,cd'ed,,cosleep and don't vaccinate..I was just fed up and wanted people to know what I'm about(but then about 24 hours later I deleted it for fear of non vax backlash IRL).
Anywho...any sympathizers out there?
Sorry if none of this makes sense
