I am NOT interested in starting a debate here, I have had a day full of stress and anxiety and I simply need to tell the universe:
ALL PEOPLE THAT REFUSE TO BE VACCINATED OR VACCINATE THEIR CHILDREN SHOULD BE ROUNDED UP AND DEPORTED TO AN ISLAND SO THEY CAN NOT INFECT THE REST OF US.
Typically I try not to judge other people's choices (I am not perfect either) but when I spend half a day trying to nurse my four week old baby girl, who can not attach for more than a few minutes at a time before she has a coughing fit and vomits phlegm and milk onto me, when I have to hold her down so she can have a chest x-ray, when I have to watch my husband hold her head still so a nurse can stick a plastic tube up her nose and into her throat to take a sample to test for whopping cough then I get a little grumpy.
For the record, the doctors do not really think that she has whopping cough, they are trying to be pro-active and want to eliminate the possibility. I am also fully breast feeding her (ha, ha, ha . . . when she can actually eat and hold down milk) and I was vaccinated against whopping cough only two years ago so in theory she should be protected by my immunity, but still, because of the inconsiderate members of society who can't be bothered immunizing themselves or their kids her doctors have to consider the possibility she could have been exposed to whopping cough. . .
Vent over. I hope the universe was listening.
