Family and Caregiver Schizophrenia Discussion Forum

Should I have children?

My illness started with my first child. Carrying was extremely hard plus my job did not make it that easy either. I dont regret my babies not one bit. Schizophrenia as i know now runs very heavy in my family. I do worry every day for my two kids. I pray and constantly worry that they might end up with it also. That is only left up to the big man upstairs. Its a very hard decision to make. But it sucks you lose everything to this illness and i mean everything. But i hold on foe the sake of my family and know things could be worse and im still far beyond blessed. Hope you make the right decision for you.
