So i feel like a terrible mother right now. We had our Ped appointment on friday....(i had willingly delayed a lot of the vaccines) and she did 7 together.... Well one had 6 in it and the Prevenar (for pneumonia specially now with the flu) which was 1.....(pls don't wanna start vaccine debate - we vaccinate since in Greece in order to go to school you have to be fully vaccinated)........so the problem is the child raised VERY high fever and i had to give her Depon (equal to tylenol i think).....and she spat it and reched it back at me. i was panicked....! I mean i lost it. I yelled at my DH and i was unfair to him and i could get Stephanie to take the medicine....it was 4:30 in the morning and her fever was close to 39,5 celcius....she was kicking and screaming and i was trying to force feed her the medication!.....i mean i have NEVER done anything like that to her before. I know i did it because i had to and because her temperature was spiraling out of control. In the end i managed to do it but it was through a LOT of tears and struggling. I HATE myself ......i am freaking tired because 3 days in a row i slept very little since i was monitoring her closely at night and i was with her all day long. Also we had my step daughter over for the weekend and she ALSO got sick and we had to take her back to her mom.....and last but not least they stole my DH's wallet out of the car today!!!!!!!!!......... I mean ok whatever.......i feel sick and ill and my head hurts and i feel so bad that i forced my baby to do something she didn't want even if it was for her own good......am i the only one that feels like that?

Don't feel bad. I got over the kids not wanting to take the meds long ago. I used to have to literally sit on Lilly to get her to take anything. She got over it and now she is fine. Here in the US it is also required to have shots but there are ways around that. Totally not going to debate this but you should never feel like you are forced to do it. Anyway. I am sure that she is not mad at you. Being a mother is not always fun.
Thank you ~* Helen *~ for the best all about me siggie! You are absolutely fabulous!
I remember those days, I'm sorry you are going through that. One thing is for sure, some kids just don't react well to vaccines, my little Cooper is horrible & gets tremendous set-backs in his development. I finally saw the laws & how by law, if you do not want your kids to be vaccinated, you can state that it's against your religious beliefs & they cannot say another word, they can't ask you why, or your reasons or details. They literally have to shut their mouths & nothing else is to be said to you. You have that right.
Hang in there. It's temporary (fussy stuff) but it's hard when they are small & you have to go through that.
