Life on Meds...Approaching 40

Posted by yardena on August 18, 1999, at 23:51:27

As 40 comes into view, I am stuck here struggling to get control of my depressive illness, and have very strong feelings about the impact this illness has had, is having, and may have in the future, on my life.

Will I be able to have kids (if it's not already too late)? Do I WANT to have kids if I might pass on my biological predisposition to depression? If pregnancy is out because of my dependence on medication, will I be able to adopt? Or, will I be ruled out as an adoptive parent because of my depression?

As for marriage: It is hard not to feel completely defective and unsuitable with this illness.

Are any of you struggling with these thoughts?
