Anyone planning on having children. I’m coming off meds at the moment. In 7 months I’ll be off meds. Anyone else have schizophrenia and planning on having children?
I have a gf of 2 years and we’re planning on having a boy and a girl in about 8 years.
How old are you Chance?
The best decision I ever made was deciding I didn’t want kids. There’s no way I would have been able to look after them and also I could have passed schizophrenia onto them.
I’m exhausted after playing with my young nieces for about 2 hours every week when they visit.
Kids need attention 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Have you spoken to any experts / counsellors about this ?
No I haven’t spoken to any experts about this. My psychaiatrist doesn’t think I’ll have another breakdown as my psychotic epsiodes were weed induced so hopefully I’ll be fit and healthy.
rooting for you x
Thanks asgoodasitgets xxx
Ok. Good luck then !
I’m planning on NOT having children, I hope no one rapes me…
Having my son triggered my MI.
What’s MI Loke?
Mental illness 1515
I’m too old but maybe at age early twentites would have liked one child a girl.
I had my daughter when I was a few weeks away from 21.
I’m planning on it, but not very well. I’m 35 and wifeless. Eventually I’ll get better, I figure.
Yeah i’m 34 and single as well
Kids are hard work . My daughter was so hard headed I just wanted to smack her sometimes. She’s 21 and still hard headed. I never knew how to properly discipline her. Nothing I ever did worked
The prospect of having a hard headed kid (or two) is terrifying. Congrats on keeping your daughter out of trouble though!
