Tomorrow is vaccine day, the twins get the infamous MMR shot that all the controversy swirls around. I tried to do a little research, to see if I had reason to worry or to try to fight it. Apparently, the Moms of a lot of kids with autism swear that the symptoms coincided with their child getting this shot. While Dr.s swear it has nothing to do with it, and have done a bunch of studies and found nothing to prove it. Meanwhile, even in countries such as Japan where they've changed the protocol and now give the vaccine in several doses, autism rates continue to rise.
So If I allow the shots to be given, are my children going to suddenly develop autism, leading me to spend the rest of my days hating myself for my mistake? Or if I refuse the shots, are my children going to get measels, mumps, or rubella, possibly die from these diseases, or cause someone else to get sick?
Feeling very caught between the proverbial rock and hard place and like I'll be a bad mother no matter what I do. NOT LIKING THIS.
