What you wrote, about being able to give your child the help you didn't get, certainly enters into it for me. Maybe that's a lousy reason to want children, but you know what? The one constant in my life is that I ALWAYS wanted children. In fact, there have been times when that's the ONLY thing that's kept me from suicide -- that I hadn't had children yet. That if I died then, I'd die a true failure, since I hadn't even achieved biological success.
And now, it seems I can't have children anyway. We haven't quite given up yet, but it's just not happening. And I don't think I can go without at least Wellbutrin. I can't even function right now, on 150mg -- although I think I could at least do a hell of a lot better if I had some help, some support, in real life. Too bad I ain't got that, huh?
Which, of course, also doesn't bode well for childrearing...
Thanks for answering, though. Have I mentioned it's great to see you back?
