For some people, it does come down to a paper trail for DHS situations (or within a divorce or something, that turns nasty). Especially for non-vax families that are in a hostile area for non-vax (like say, MS or WV). Even if you homeschool to get around it, you can be turned in. :/ I live in MS right now (moving in TWO WEEKS! HECK YES!) and it really is a reality. That said - I *still* am not doing well visits here for the reasons I stated earlier in the thread.

I am going to try to find a great doc in ND when we get there. We had a great one in FL when my son was a newborn. I will only go to an amazing doctor, not going to put up with one who wants to fight with me.

ETA: But we do have a relationship with an NP here. She is great and sees both of us in one visit. Once, I took DS (the only time he has ever been sick) and she saw me too. Then when I had my gallbladder out and I went to her for the diagnosis/referral, she weighed my DS b/c I brought him with.
