so im looking to you gals for a little help with being a worry wort. my twins are 22m and have been mostly on schedule though usually just a few months behind because they wee premies and are not exposed that much being only children and their shots were spaced out o they only get one or two shots a visit and just go more often.
now the only thing they are behind on is MMR and VAR. i have just been holding off. the VAR i have been putting off, because like the earlier conversation, im just seeing both sides of the issues. though lately i think i have summed it up for myself:
that the problem is that there is a vax in the first place, not if my child now gets it or not.
the issues with loss of natral boosters will affect everyone as the bulk of the population will soon be vaxed for it.
so at this point i doubt it matters much if we get it or not, so will probably get the shot.
that leaves me with the MMR, and i realize that i'm super nervous about it. not totally sure why, i goes i do think that some folks have something triggered in their systems by the stress of maybe the live virus for the first time? the fevers and seizures are a fact, even according to the cdc, so that bums me out. but i also know that they will need them at some point soon, because my schools and now our military day care option that we need to use for a few things will surely need it too. i am simply not going to fight that fight for exemptions, you will almost never get one in the military, and frankly I'm not going to lie to try to.
so i just need to go do it, and i'm dragging my feet and keep making excuses why it cant be this week (one has a cold, the are teething, we travel in a week and i dont want a problem to come up when we are away) its always something and has ben for months. what should i do? how do i make myself ok with this??
I'd say tap into your mothers intuition which is what it sounds like you are hearing. Decide if you want to go w/ that or talk yourself into/out of something. It is hard to follow it as society actively discourages it.
