Anyways. I felt stupid at the ped today. He respects my choice, but out of curiosity asked why. After my last experience of being honest, I decided to say "its against our religion"... Ha
Then he asks me what religion. I must have looked like a deer in the headlights. I blurted out Baptist. He said he didn't realized Baptist believed that way, so I had to think quick and I said it was just our interpretation of things. Luckily he left it at that.
I hate lying. I'm NOT good at it. Lol
And yes, i'm posting anon because I don't need my inbox flooded with stupidity.
Thanks for the laughs ladies!! I just LOVE the conclusions everyone jumps to. No where did I say I don't vax because of autism or Jenny McCarthy. ROFL.
You call me uneducated and tell me I should do research, but you have no idea what led me to the decision to not vaccinate my children. Do you enjoy name calling? Does it make you feel good about yourself?
About my OP, it has been brought to my attention that I am not in fact lying to get my exemption. Vaccinations go against my beliefs.
I did, however, choose to lie to the pediatrician. Yep, you got me there. God, i'm horrible. Either way, i'm not vaccinating and he wouldn't have been able to change my mind. AFTER I stated my lie, is when he said he respected my choice. Hallelujah!!
The last pediatrician I went to, I WAS honest with and I got a lecture and talked down to like an uninformed child. I was attempting to avoid that situation, and instead but myself in another awkward position. Lol. OOPS.
The decision not to vax my children was not made lightly. I spent Alot of time soul searching and informing myself. This is the best decision FOR MY FAMILY.
I'm not spewing "antivaccine propaganda" nor trying to convince anyone to live the way I do. I was sharing my funny story.
So, to those of you who wish to continue bashing me, carry on. This ol girl feels 100% confident in her choice, and your just making yourselves look foolish!! =)

Why not? People like to get assistance when they don't really need it.
by lalabooshJune 1, 2012 at 5:33 PMYou're cute! I have trouble with lying, too!
Actually I dont think it should be forced. I think darwin has it right. I wish more people wouldnt vax. resources are stretched.
Isn't it sad how many stupid parents just inject their child with whatever is offered without even reading the label?
Or the parents that listen to a playboy bunny with her fake autistic kid?
lmao, Her fake autistic Kid?
She must of just been bored one day and thought
"huh, I'll just pretend he's non verbal , search for Treatments, and start doing Charity events so people will stop vaxing... That's what I'll do today"
You seem so... Zealous. And insecure.
I'm sure the WHO is a bunch of money hungry assholes except when it comes to their breast feeding recommendations. Lol.
So sad that other countries are outright banning vaxes that this money driven country is still promoting...
We need to see A LOT of deaths happen before we stop injecting our kids with something that's had a bad track record at preventing the disease anyway...

I think not vaccinating is done by ill informed people will to much fear.
