I was just thinking that it would be a great idea to have this sticky. On The Case Against Circumcision forum there is a very powerful sticky-thread If you regret circumcising your son(s), please post here. http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=112410 .
I thought perhaps it would be a good idea to do the same thing here.
I could be the first poster of my regret story. What do you guys think?
dd1 has had issues with asthma, eczema, weight, gastro issues, and food sensitivities.
her eczema started after her 4mo shots.
Living with an invisible chronic illness.
Fat and hairy. And happy with both *( o Y o )*
I regret it and wonder if the vax's contributed to my 13 and 1yo's Celiac Disease
My first son was selectively vaxxed up until age 2- but he still got a lot of shots~ I regret constantly that I had them vaxxed. I didn't know then what I do now. I am constantly worried that I did them harm that is just not apparant right now. I am angry how misled I was, and that I didn't research enough before doing the shots.
My baby (11 months) has never received any shots.
DS1 had DTaP scream & febrile seizure after the first dose of DTaP. I'm wondering lately if he may be on the autism spectrum. DD has had no issues, thank God.
I will NOT be giving her any more vac's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We have an appointment for an EEG then a consult with a neurologist.
From research I have done, HepB vac gives you Herpes Virus6(Roseola) which can cause febrile seizures, any other immune debilitating vacs can re-activate the herpes, Febrile Seizures are additive- meaning your chances of having one increase each time you have one, Febrile Seizure can lead to Epilepsy which then leads to Autism. Also, once you have had a seizure you are more prone to pneumonia.
What can I do to make my baby girl healthy again???????????? ughhh
Also- doc's keep telling me that because she entered daycare at 12mo is why she's been so sick...
Regret vaxing my oldest daughter every single day of my life..
My son (our first child) has received 9 shots total (3 sets of DTaP, HIB and PCV at 4, 6 and 8 months of age). I regret it every. single. day! I wish I knew better, I wish I read and researched more, I wish I trusted my instincts, I wish I could go back and say a big fat "NO" when the doctor was BS-ing us into vaccinating. I wish, I wish, I wish...
Before the first set of vaccines our baby was so calm, when he would wake up at night he wouldn’t even cry (not that he had a reason to, we co-sleep, so his boobie was always right there for him).
After receiving the first set of shots he was screaming for few hours and we just couldn't calm him down. Then he fell asleep for 6 hours straight (which was extremely unusual for him). Few days later he had his first outbreak of eczema. He had never been quite as calm any more as he has before the shots. He would wake up at night crying alot.
After his 6 months shots (just two days after) he came down with a HORRIBLE flu (his first illness, he was a healthy baby before that) and had another pretty bad outbreak of eczema.
8 months shots. An AWFUL outbreak of eczema that lasted for over 3 months. His immune system got so bad by then (no wonder 9 shots in 4 months:) that he would get cold/flu after cold/flu.
That's when we found out more about vaccines and stopped.
My daughter has never had a shot and is not going to. It’s amazing how much better her immune system is!
Our kids will receive any more vaccines only over my and dh's dead bodies! Never again!
I did the best that I could at the time with the knowledge I possessed. I'm very grateful that there was no obvious vaccine damage.
We have two more completely vaccine/abx free grandsons. All three are intact - no circumcisions here.
Wish we would have research vaccines in the same way we informed ourselves about circumcisions.
When more DC come along ~ you can bet they will be VAX FREE!

I am annoyed at the hospital staff who gave my son his fist shot of HepB without my explicit permission, although I wasn't concerned about it at the time, due to ignorance on this issue.
I despise our first ped for dismissing my concern about my ds's reaction to his first shot of HIB at 2 months of age. He had a fever, redness and inflammationg at the injection site and was crying unconsolably(even breastfeeding wouldn't calm him down). The ped said this reaction was "normal". I bet he didn't even report it as a VAE. And he mentioned nothing about possibly avoding HIB shots in the future.
When did I begin to question vaxing? Maybe it all started when ds received his first round of shots at the ped's office. After spending some time interacting nicely with the doctor, smiling and making baby noises, he cried out in protest and anger upon receiving the first shot. He cried even louder after the second shot. I can still remember the look of betrayal in my baby's eyes, as if he couldn't believe that a person who had been treating him so nicely a few moments ago would intentionally hurt him. I remember holding him close while nursing to minimize the pain and wondering why is it that preventative medicine has to be so cruel. Is it really necessary to cause babies so much pain? What if all my ds takes away from this experience is lack of trust in people who are supposed to take care of him? I had a hard time justifying to myself causing my child definite and acute harm now for some supposed future benefit.
I regret that I had dismissed my inner wisdom at that time and contined to vax my son for another 18 months or so. I only attribute it to the fact that I was alone in my concern - not one person mentioned anything negative about vaccines to me. Everyone I knew vaccinated their kids, there was not a single person IRL who held an opposing point of view. I regret not having encountered anyone with a strong alternative opinion on this issue.
