Re: Worried about future kids having SN?

To be blunt yes I do. In my case it is less about each of my boy's individual diagnosis and more about my own diagnoses and knowing that they have a genetic component. I am now done having kids and part of it is because my youngest has been diagnosed bipolar. I wish I had considered the possibilities sooner. I love my boys but I feel a great deal of guilt watching them struggle and knowing how hard their lives are and probably always will be. It is a crap shoot and there is a chance I could have more children and they could be "normal" but that is not a risk I am willing to take.
