I have seen that many people feel that those who choose to vaccinate do so out of fear of the diseases, while those who don't are afraid of the possible complications.
Did your base your decision off of fear?
I have a hard time believing that many moms base their decision off of fear. On either side of the argument I have talked to many many moms, and dads, and I get many many emotions, but rarely fear seems to be a motivator.
When we made our decision we based it off of research, family beliefs, our comfort levels, our philosophical beliefs, and much more. Fear was never really a factor. Fear motivated me to research and gave me the desire to make an educated decision, but in the end our decision was based off of what we truly believe was the right decision. We know that with either choice there are possible complications, but we never allowed that to be a motivating factor. After all, Its possible that we get in a car accident on the way to the store, that doesn't mean I should fear putting my kids in the car. I can't live my life in fear, I just don't have the energy to do that!!
So again, was fear a motivating factor for you in this decision? (regardless of what decision you made?)
