I didn't know where else to post this so... anyway...
A neighboring town of mine has a forum for it's residents and surrounding towns. I've been going in there trying to print just interesting info on vaccinating, organic foods, chemical free sunscreen. You know, that sort of thing. I am being completely attacked in there by people I don't know and by a couple that I do... Does anyone else feel like just nobody gets it? Not just the no-vaccine thing, but anything you've chosen with your life? My family supports me, but that's just about it! Sometimes I wish I never would have moved from my "hippy" town (Athens, OH...for those of you who know) to be closer to hubbies work. (sigh)

it is hard to get attacked for something that you believe so strongly in. This is one reason why I don't really offer my opinion on the subject. Most people just do not care! Sad, but true. I would just stop going there and live your life the way you want.

It may be too late since you already mentioned vaccinations, but if you try again just start out slow and easy with things that are less...controversial. Organic foods can be controversial I guess, but not as much as vaccines.

Thanks for the responses! I'm just going to avoid that forum all together I've decided. Too much dramatics for me!
