So this is a bit of a personal one, but it's something that is a big concern of mine- kids.
There are two main reasons I'm worried about having kids: Genetics and being too ill to parent.
I don't know if the latter is something that will calm down a little as I work out more about what is actually wrong with me and get used to it, but right now I am just terrified about the future. Will I ever be able to reach the point where I can contribute enough to make kids a financial possibility? Will I ever be well enough to support kids? How old will I be by the time kids are and option and will it be too late? Will my kids have to suffer with my issues? So many fears.
And genetics is something I worry about too. I want to be a parent and always have and obviously as a parent I would want my kid(s) to be happy and healthy. In my life already though I've battled with depression, OCD, Learning difficulties and a whole host of physical issues I don't think I'm even fully aware of yet. And it seems that this has at least something to do with my genetics.
Does anybody else worry about their future with their illness and kids?
