I am feeling more isolated these days in terms of not vaxxing. am not opposed to selective vaxxing at some point, but in terms of not vaccinating, I am kind of alone. one of my best friends lives in the uk and she doesn't have her children vaccinated either, but other than that I know no one, and feel a growing pressure to bend on this. my main reason has been I feel I had bad reactions to vaccines as an infant (required hospitalization but was totted up to something else, my mom said her gut feeling was the vaccines but it was the early 70s and it wasn't the norm to ever question dr.s according to her)
my husband has been asking about vaxxing on a nearly weekly basis since my youngest turned 3 (so a little over a year now), and am feeling just down and isolated and that I don't have enough knowledge to back up my concerns. I feel alone on this, and my friends are more openly talking about how irresponsible and ignorant parents are that don't vax. they know I haven't vaxxed my kids but I think they "forget" a lot more now, particularly when outbreaks of a "Vaccine preventable" disease occurs
I guess I am just looking for some guidance from those who actually have made similar choices.
