I recently had an interesting conversation with a friend. She mentioned to me that she had seen a sign in our Houston suburb advertising the fact that parents can opt out of school-required vaccines — a fact of which she was completely unaware. Obviously I encounter this issue often in my line of work; however, never have I encountered it so noticeably in my own backyard. If you’re curious as to what the sign read, check out the picture below.
I remember it vividly — my body was aching, my eyes were heavy. I was extremely thirsty, and overall felt miserable. My mom noticed I was not my normal self and took me to the doctor. She drew a blood sample, and within minutes, everything changed forever.
