Oh yeah - 40. Been there. Am there actually. I understand the worry about passing this "disorder" on to some sad child. I chose many years ago not to have kids for several reasons - that is one of the major ones. Other reasons - my severaly depressed mom didn't have much in the way of "maternal instinct" or even interest. I think that shaped my lack of desire for children. In addition, worries about what the stress of raising kids would do to my depression just plain scared me.

Do I wonder if I made the right decision? Definately. But, for me, this is the one I stick to. However - I don't have that buring desire for children. If you do - that's completely different. Maybe the mom's here could help you understand the balance of stress vs. the joy of loving a child? (I'm not the best one the ask!)
