The Idiots are Going to Overtake Us

So last night after I got Jellybean to sleep (without a fight!) at 8:30 ish, I posted on Facebook my love for his chiropractor. After much research and suggestions from his pediatrician we started taking him for adjustments to help with his chronic ear infections. He started with a dry cough on Saturday and was getting progressively worse over the weekend so I shot sweet Dr. Erin a message Sunday asking if he could come in after day care on Monday. She squeezed him in at 4:45.

This was my post. Make sure to read all the comments after it too...(Click on the picture to see the full comments.)

I don't even know where to start.

Can you really say to each his own while lambasting someone making a different choice then your own?

Can you really comment on chiropractic care and any inherent risks if you haven't done any research into the subject matter?

It is impossible to be objective and argumentative simultaneously.

I'm proud of myself in this situation though. I came away sounding like the someone who did their research and I think I did it in a well rounded, non-argumentative educated way.

This person - they aren't exactly known for being the most educated or classy person out there so the response didn't shock me.

I just figured most who know me would know that I'm not going to jump to surgery. I'm a pretty crunchy momma. We're still breastfeeding at 16 months. We cloth diaper at home. I don't freak out when he eats a random cheerio or goldfish from under the couch. (I'm still trying to figure out where he found the Chex cereal in his high chair yesterday though...)

I do vaccinate.

My sister is a nurse.

I was a pre-med major before I decided I wanted to have a life before 30.

My job as a mother is to inform myself and make the best choices for my family. I am never one to immediately jump into anything and always want to look at the full range of options available. I try not to judge other mom's for making choices different then mine.

Why then do I have to defend myself?

Obviously low class! People are crazy. I will never understand how some boundary lines are never respected?? Why do people think it's ok to totally go off like this?

Well, as this moron said, "To each their own, I guess".
