Hey guys its been AWHILE since I posted last. My computer has been RIDDLED with viruse after viruse and I think Ive finally got it all cleaned out. Anyways my son just turned 3 last week and I guess its time for his yearly appointment. So Ill admit it.. Im a bad mom. I havent taken him to see the Dr since he was 1. The reason is because last year when I went up there for his 2 year check up they told me while in the waiting room my insurance had run out and they couldnt take me unless I had cash on hand. Well for some reason the paperwork didnt reach the insurance office in time for the cut off. I had a difficult time getting it all straightened out and he was back on in a few months. Well by that time he was healthy and I just didnt think about it. I just looked up vaccine schedules and it seems like hes missed a lot. Honestly I fear taking him to the Dr in fear they might want to just give him everything in one day! After reading reports on people who say they can track the time their children developed autism back to vaccines it scares me! My SO has a family member who says she will NOT get her child vaccinated after (x) age (Im not sure but I think it was all her baby ones) because she is so scared. It was years ago when she told me. Its not only annual shots that scare me but things like the flu shot, etc. If Im not mistaken doesnt the flu virus change every year so they have to change the shot every year? How do they know this is going to be safe in the long run!?! Are there some shots that are ABSOLUTELY necessary and some that arent? Does anyone have or know of a family with a child that developed autism by what is thought to be vaccines?
