This may sound funny, but for the sake of humanity, I don't want to have kids. I'm mentally ill and don't want it to be passed on to my children. I've lived a depressing life-im actually 27- and don't want to make them unhappy with my bipolar disorder. I don't hate kids. I'll like to help them when I can. I just don't want to burden them because I know how dispiriting this situation can be. I would really appreciate your help on this topic.
