Never wanted crotch goblins.

I had chosen to be child free, but the kid showed up anyhow. She’s like that.

My husband and I my husband don’t have or want children.

Seems like it would suck.

But I had a baby and loved it so much,

He was adopted by a loving couple and we’re still close.

So I kind of have the best of both worlds.

I don’t have the responsibility of children,

But I get to enjoy having a kid.

It’s awesome.

I don’t want kids because they’re expensive and I only get SSI which is just enough money for me.

To a certain degree yeah but the anxiety made it difficult to function socially so if I only had schizophrenia I don’t know how it would have gone.

I go between wanting them and not wanting them so I always stay with not wanting them just in case

I guess it’s by choice in a way, but this society really isn,'t conducive to having children the way it used to be. I could have had kids at 16 years old, the opportunity was there, but something was amiss.

I also remained child free by choice. I was afraid, with being in and out of hospital since I was 16, that if I had a child it would be traumatized by me “going away” frequently and having to go into foster care, etc. It would just be wrong of me to put that on a kid.

Well I don’t know if what so much my choice. I was dx’ed right around the age that most men meet a partner and settle down.

So that mixed with a lot of rejection from the opposite sex has left me child-less.

For my whole adult life I’ve had no interest in being burdened with children, does not appeal to me. I just generally don’t like kids.

I was married to a woman with 2 kids and took care of them like my own for 4 years. I learned from that, that I am not built to have kids of my own. I’d be content being the cool uncle. With my symptoms it’s just not a good idea. Plus I’m happily single right now.

Around the age of thirty a still, small voice asked me for some weeks if I wanted kids. I decided no, I would feel an overwhelming obligation. I have no skills or education. I guess I really disappointed people, my voices too, in how I turned out. I turn around and laugh f- you!

I’m childfree by choice

No real wish to lose all my time worrying and working beyond my capacity for people who would not live a good life by the time there is breakdown of society Which will happen within ‘their’ lifetime, And possibly even mine
I’d also echo so many of the points above in my own case

I don’t want to pass on my defective genes to a baby.
