So I'm talking to DH about how i hope the hospital will change it's policy of no kids or allow some flex by the time our sweetpea comes next month. Then I decide to go ahead & tell him that I'm going to try & get myself & the kids vaccinated for H1N1, IF I can get the mercury free version.
He completely LOST IT!! He got so so angry, it was really over the top!! He's completely convinced, without nay evidence at all, that there's some subversive reason why there's so much hype about getting the vaccine. He refuses the idea that maybe, just maybe, medical people are trying to save lives! It's so infuriating!
I get that he's into conspiracy theories, but I can't take it that his every outlook on the world is negative! Why can't he just think about the less evil possibilities & consider that they may be real?!!!
I did finally get him to calm down & talk to me some, but he won't tell me anything that he's even heard or read about the vaccine itself being bad in some way. He has all of this stuff about how the virus was genetically engineered or other such things, but nothing about the vaccine itself.
I just don't get him going so ballistic over this. He's always left all of the medical decisions up to me bc he couldn't bring himself to make them or even to deal with thinking about them. And he has to choose when I'm 8 mths PG to get passionate about one. He doesn't even believe that a pregnant woman or a baby is immune compromised in any way. It's a medical FACT!!!
Just had to vent. I have no issue whatsoever with people deciding either way on this or any other medical thing. We all have the right to come to our own conclusions. I just don't get my own DH getting so freaked out.
