I'm sure you remember my post from the other day about my anxiety attack about vaccines. I'm doing some research and feeling a lot better. My SO is researching with me and he said "A lot of vaccines seem... pointless." That helps me feel a lot better too, because he's usually one to straight JUMP on medicine. Thanks for your help, everyone :)

Yay!! I agree with your so too. When I was researching I found myself thinking a lot "why are people afraid of this disease?"

He also said "I understand now." In reference to me showing him why I don't want to give the vaccines, and it was best thing he could have said.

Some of the complications are a bit scary, such as orchitis from mumps (because I have a boy) but it's treatable if caught and rare. And there are many other "risk factors" for it.

But I'm feeling really strong in my decision to not give any more vaxes- he did already get some, and I feel bad, but NO MORE.

I talked to DS' ped about mumps b/c I was worried, too.  He said it's so rare and usually only one testicle is affected.  He's chosen not to vax his own kids so I feel comfortable now in not ever getting DS the MMR.
