Thank you and God bless you for that wonderful post!

A lot of us, as you mentioned, have struggled and continue to struggle with this question. What your response made me see, for the first time, is that there can be a HUGE difference between people who are aware of their disorders and who take action, moving towards healing, and those people with disorders who refuse (or cannot) acknowledge this. The latter may wind up subjecting their children to the consequences of the parents' disorders on top of the chance the children may have these problems on their own. The former -- who sound like the folks on this board who are all so concerned over their "fit" with their world -- well, we know what we can do. We can come to know our strengths and gifts, and focus on them. We can come to know our troubles and weaknesses, and learn how to manage or change them. And we can also be the best counselors for any of our children who share our disorders -- we can do our best to make their way far easier than the path we've had to follow.

Thanks again, you've made my day,
