Hi yardena, I have read some of your other posts and you seem like a determined and very intelligent woman. I'm 31 and at this point in my life don't plan on having children mainly because I don't want to risk passing on my disorders, and secondarily because I don't know what kind of a mother I'd be. Not only did I inherit these illnesses, but I've also learnt alot of my depressive, impulsive, perfectionist, etc characteristics off of my family members, which, like yours, is laden with disorders, manic depression, alcoholism, ADD, etc.

Most of mental illnesss would be fine if they didn't all seem to come with that Beast, depression. and that Beast, it takes over our lives. we all let ourselves get so far into our illnesses before we get help. I can relate to your thoughts yardena. For about five years now, my only real goal was to get rid of the beast. I'm almost there, and I'm ever so slowly living in a different world than the one I shared with the beast. kill the beast, fight the war on all fronts yardena. Janice
