Sometimes I wonder about it. I’m 55, and I’ve never had children. It’s looking like I’m not going to. I’m not crushed by that, though. I think I would have been a great parent, but it just didn’t work out.
I am 52 and have no children. I had a step son there for a while but no longer. I don’t plan on bringing children into the world because for one my girlfriend can’t have kids and I would not want them if she could. She already has a son. long story. anyways. I wouldn’t want to be an old guy dad because the child wouldn’t have me into his/her later years of their life.
Sometimes I think about this. I really want kids, not that many, just two (maybe three if I think I can handle it). Out of the 5 other kids in my family, only me and my youngest brother seem to have gotten the psychosis. (And I can’t even confirm if he has it or not, all I’ve noticed is he has the same constant fearfulness I did as a kid, who knows if he’s experiencing all the rest of it) If any of my other siblings got it they haven’t shown it at all. I really wonder which one of my parents passed the crazy gene onto us…we don’t talk about mental illness in my family, it’s all hushed up so I’ll never know who had it. Heck, whoever had it probably hides (or hid) it the same as we try to do.
Maybe I’ll get one of those genetic tests done to see how at risk my kids would be. They’re supposed to be a lot cheaper nowadays if you’re only looking for a specific gene or genes.
I’m not sure if I want kids. Sometimes, I think I would be a great parent, but other times I’d feel I’d fail my possible future kids. Also, I’d hate the thought of passing schizophrenia onto them. Even the thought of it makes me sad.
I would never subject my own child to this place and these horrible bodies.
There would have to be something very drastic that would happen as a consequence if i didn’t have any. Like in hunter gatherer societies, if they didn’t have team work they faced a torturous death, so maybe in a situation like that.
But there are to many as is and nothing works right and i sure as hell don’t want them murdered in a war or anything.
Nope, not having kids.
It would always be in my mind. What is going to kill my child.
I really hate the term… “normie” It’s been said with depths of hate. I don’t hate people who are not SZ… So I went looking for something else… a different word.
neurologically typical, is a term coined in the autistic community as a label for people who are not on the autism spectrum. However, the term eventually became used for anyone who does not have atypical neurology: in other words, anyone who does not have autism, dyslexia, developmental coordination disorder, bipolar, schizophrenia, ADD/ADHD, or other similar conditions.
