Want a child

Yes, because keeping secrets from the mother of your child is a wonderful way to begin a relationship. Y’all are messed up and selfish.


Lying by omission, also known as a continuing misrepresentation, lying by omission occurs when an important fact is left out in order to foster a misconception. Lying by omission includes the failure to correct pre-existing misconceptions.


we’re in trouble now @Resilient1

idk what these guys are talking about, who said anything about lying???

maybe ill find the right girl…but honestly I’m not convinced that I’m sz, so that’s part of what i’d have to be honest with her about…yeah I use it to get disability but I got along my whole life without doctors

thats not keeping secrets, i mean i would tell her as much as i could but try and make it sound like its in the past, its under control and that i can cope with life and having children etc,

its going to look real good if i was like 'yeah…soooo… did you know i had paranoid schizophrenia…

she’d run a mile

once she gets to know me she would know that it wasnt a problem anyway,

not lying about anything

Try to put yourself in the shoes of the other person. How would you feel? A kid is a real person and not a goal. And a woman is a real person and not a vehicle for a baby.

I honestly hope and believe that in 20 or 30 years there are going to be much better treatments and maybe even a cure, but it’s not fair of you alone to decide to take that risk without even letting the other person know it exists. And not just because of the genetic risk, but in case of relapse.

For all you know, she might not tell you she also had sz risk in her family, and the kid could have a double whammy of risk.


who cares if you have sz or not, if you are stable enough and capable of having an open and honest relationship then i say go for, actually i would encourage it @yaz1 :slight_smile:

probably should keep taking your meds though,

i think you should talk to your p/doc about this actually and ask him/her their point of view xxx

If you adopt the adopted child will not have schizophrenia, but you need to be cured of sz, you must have a home and a job.

LED is right on this one. You have to tell your partner about your SZ. I’m afraid it will break up your relationship if she ever finds out.


No offense. But whether you are mis-diagnosed, or have a mild case of schizophrenia, or some other mental illness other than schizophrenia or whatever the problem is, it doesn’t seem to me that hiding it is an option. I just can’t see having a child with another person when you have an illness that has the possibility of being passed down to a baby. She’ll find out eventually anyways, 5, 10, or 20 years down the road.


This is a horrible thing to do. Having a child is life-changing and it is only done when you really love someone and want to start a family you can provide for and love unconditionally.


This is ridiculous.

You want to use a woman in order to have a child,

Because you don’t know what else to do with your life.

Get it together man.


children are great, i cant think of a better thing to do, @yaz1 dont listen to all of these naysayers, do what you like, do what you think is right, you are planning for the future and that is a good thing, i have got plans as well, i think i’d like 2 or 3 children, nothing wrong with wanting a child :slight_smile:

For the sake of these hypothetical women and children, I hope neither of you find a woman.


He specifically said he only wants sex for reproduction and is not going to tell this woman about his schizophrenia.

I’m not an idiot, you didn’t read the post or you are a bigot that thinks its okay to use women.

Or both.


if you read my replies you will see where i stand i am not a bigot or anything, you guys must think that just bc we are sz we cant do things like that, why wouldn’t a woman want to be with us and have our children or the other way around?
