This post may not go exactly what you might suspect it’s going to. This is about people who react…mostly over react to people. People who are over reacting instead of reading and thinking first. People who read a paper and suddenly are experts. You know the type, people who read a paper that’s 100% for them and not reading one that disagrees.
This has a lot to do with vaccinations, but I feel it can be applied to a lot in life. I am for vaccinations, but I am not for pro-vaccinators *not a word* who become belligerent towards people who aren’t even saying no vaccinations. There is someone I follow on Instagram who had a reaction to a vaccination and now has a chronic illness. She knows how rare this is. She has never EVER said don’t get vaccinated, but she gets literally vile comments because she says “research” first…And I think she’s right. The other people who have gotten chronic illnesses say so too.
Quiet frankly I’m going to listen to them over someone who read a paper saying they’re wrong.
I’m a Librarian…I can guarantee there’s a paper saying that it can happen. I have actually seen them myself. Because I also believe that Pharmacies and Drug companies are more about money than people’s actual well-being.
As was the case in Ireland and a lot of Europe:
Narcolepsy link to glaxo vaccine poses challenge of fda
Now this happened because people aka the Government and Drug companies tried to push this vaccine quickly without much research. The reason for this particular vaccine/drug was to help people with the “bird flu”. Now parents are suing the Government, because the Government will not help these parents and families out.
I’m all for vaccinations and I will get any future children theirs as well. Just because though someone tells me to do research (which you really should be doing for nearly all things in life). Does not make them anti…If that makes sense? In fact this person I follow actually pointed out that a)She’s has never actually said to not get them and b)Why people are assuming she still doesn’t get them herself? Which is a good point. That’s why sometimes take a deep breath, and read what your reading. I honestly believe that people don’t read anymore. They pick out keywords they WANT to read and go from there. The job that I’m in, I’ve learnt to read (I always have) but as time as gone on where I work. It’s becoming more obvious how little people read.
I actually had an incident this morning, where a student came in on the wrong day for an entrance type test. The email said Thursday the 6th, but they said the person on the phone said the 6th of Friday, so that’s why they missed the test. So, even though three of out the four things were about 6th (which is the Thursday) they blamed someone else for saying Friday, even though the person on the phone said the 6th too.

I find myself agreeing with pretty much every point you raised. Especially in regarding to vaccinations.

It was so interesting to see the comments “unfurl”. I felt terrible for her, especially since she does still get them, when she can.
