First, thank you for even clicking the link. You know who you are, and for the most part, I know who you are. I know you think you know what’s best for all the kids out there, and see the “science” plastered out there on how one child in Orange County, CA died of whooping cough earlier this year. In fact, there’s a chance you even thought of all the pro-thought/pro-rights (or anti-vax as you call it) posts when you read a headline about an “outbreak.”
You know, I think of things too when I hear these cases. Sometimes I wonder, about who that child was exposed to, and mostly I wonder how many “fully vaccinated” individuals were damaged getting the vaccine and later still came down with something dreadful.But, here’s the thing. We’re all people. We all are out there for the same thing: keep going with what we believe is right for our family, and, really, for those around us as well.
- Did you know that most of my friends who choose to delay vaccines or not do any vaccines, actually have researched beyond Jenny McCarthy and Wakefield?
- Have you considered that in freedom, we also believe in responsibility?
- Almost every person I know who doesn’t vaccinate either breastfeeds or gets donor breastmilk for their babies, and most breastfeed for the full “WHO” term of two years, if not more?
- Did you also know that most are extremely conscious about where their children go on a regular basis, what their children eat, and what they do not eat? They are concerned parents.
- Seizure caused by fever (about 1 child in 1,250 who get MMRV), usually 5-12 days after the first dose. They happen less often when MMR and varicella vaccines are given at the same visit as separate shots (about 1 child in 2,500 who get these two vaccines), and rarely after a 2nd dose of MMRV.
- Mild rash, up to a month after vaccination (1 person out of 25). It is possible for these people to infect other members of their household, but this is extremely rare.
- Note: The first dose of MMRV vaccine has been associated with rash and higher rates of fever than MMR and varicella vaccines given separately. Rash has been reported in about 1 person in 20 and fever in about 1 person in 5. Seizures caused by a fever are also reported more often after MMRV. These usually occur 5-12 days after the first dose.
We may just believe in maintaining and boosting health in a different way than others.
Those of us who may not choose to follow exactly what the government agents, most of whom are ex big-pharma big-wigs or future ones or have other conflicts of interest, indicate is “best” do not wish to have your child or you come down with some random illness.
We also do not sip on antibiotics on a weekly basis. After all, over use of anti-biotics help cause the resistance of bacteria to the drugs, causing the need for more and stronger medications, when, perhaps, some (most?) of us didn’t need that medication in the first place.
(Let’s not forget that this week there was more information on how great breastmilk is and how breastmilk KILLS super bugs like MRSA better than all those chemicals out there, oh it appears to kill cancer cells, have consideration in cell regeneration due to stem cells in breastmilk and more too)
But it is hard to make money off breastmilk. Okay, I am trying really hard to not be snarky here.
For those of us who do a delayed or selective vaccination schedule, with every shot we give our child, we’re not thinking of autism. Really.
We’re thinking of the tainted vaccines, the recalls, the SV-40 virus found first in polio vaccines, and now found in a high percentage of today’s cancers.
We’re thinking of the myriad of reactions that are KNOWN, and the ones that are generally not attributed to the vaccine since there can always be a perfect storm of something else going on… making pin pointing what caused the “issue” nearly impossible. We are thinking.
(Side note: Report ANY reaction to a vaccine. Of course, when you’re injecting 2, 3, 4, 5 different shots, with what…8 different “miracles” at a time, you can’t really pinpoint WHAT caused the issue, right? But please, change won’t happen without reporting. )
According to the CDC, a rare reaction for the MMRV (Combined shot of Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella) is:
Let’s look at what the CDC says about Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine:
Are we worried? Yes! Are we a bit confused as to why we want to risk putting in toxins into our children when the vaccine itself can cause the exact symptoms they’re supposed to prevent? Absolutely. Are we not vaccinating so that we can cause an epidemic? Fuck no. Talk to the labs that cross-breed flu viruses in China, and who knows where else.
Yes, those of us who have seen our children seize, or cry for hours on end, unable to comforted while their body was unable to process why exactly they were in pain or their brain was swelling from vaccine-induced encephalitis we’re the ones to truly be worried about in today’s super-bug era.
What do you say to parents who’ve had children stop speaking after MMR vaccine and then told that it was likely developmental due to other household changes. Can you not see how torn we are on doing what someone else is telling us is right and what grips at our hearts as parents?
What do you say to those parents when you say “all children who can be vaccinated should be vaccinated” are those the “can be?”
For the seizures, most doctors will recommend no more of “that” vaccine – but since most vaccine inserts indicate fever as a common side effect, how do we know another vaccine won’t cause another seizure? After my daughter screamed in pain for hours at only a few months old, our pediatrician didn’t recommend that vaccine again for over a year. My husband are the only ones who know that she didn’t cry before that vaccine reaction? She was always easily comforted, had never screamed, ever. But before a vacation to California and an “outbreak,” we were scared into doing it again. Was it her age that changed her? Did anyone else notice how her smiles were fewer? We’ll never know.
Those of us who have stopped vaccinating for diseases that are generally non-deadly, we’re not irresponsible. We don’t just read propaganda Most of us have read books by trusted MDs, gone into NIH archives, talk to MDs in depth, visited naturopaths for alternatives, visit chiropractors to prevent the need for more antibiotics for an ear ache that is actually viral when the pediatrician wrote a prescription for an antibiotic. We’ve done our research and said, you know what, it isn’t for us. That risk just isn’t worth it for our family. And boy, we say, am I glad I live in a place where we are free.
Would the same vaccine promoters feel okay to say the same negative thing to a mom about breastfeeding? No, because that’s taboo.
Parents don’t get their children taken away for not breastfeeding. Parents do get CPS called on them for not vaccinating. Valid or not, it happens. Many people believe it is against the law to not vaccinate. There are school shots – but even those, in almost all states, aren’t law. There’s no law to breastfeed. There are guidelines. But doctors hand out formula, even though they’re supposed to be recommending the medical guidelines of breastfeeding for 6 months exclusively, 12 months and then as long as mutually agreeable (or per WHO code, 2 years is recommended). Ironic?
