I chose not to vaccinate my children. My oldest is 11yoDS and did have his first two rounds of vaccinations before I started to study it. My 9yodd never had any. At the time, I did the research and was comfortable with my decision.
We have had the fights with the doctors, family, ect... but tbh, it has died down a lot to practically nothing. We started out homeschooling but because I have mental health issues, I ended up sending them to school in grades 1 and 3 and it was good. School never gave issue about being non-vax.. They had chicken pox without incident. My son has Aspergers (so does my husband so I don't know if it's because of vaccination, doesn't matter where it came from imo). We don't have a doctor or any health care person at all.
Anyway, that's my story
Now, lately I notice a lot of people posting anti-vax stuff on facebook and horror stories of people not vaccinated, people who hate their parents for not getting them vaccinated, ect... You know the stuff that is out there.
Because of my own mental health issues, I find myself starting to question my decision and wondering, what if something happens to them, what if I made the wrong decision, ect... I have OCD and the what if's are really starting to bother me and I am worried I still start obsessing over it and know if I start looking things up, I am really going to start freaking out.
I have no one to talk to because everyone things not vaccinating is practically a death sentence. I guess I just need some assurance things are and will be fine. I never thought much about the long term and about when they get older.
