I was recently diagnosed with bipolar. I had to stay in the hospital and then go through an outpatient program which did nothing for me and I ended up back in the hospital. But, now that I am on the right medications I feel like me, but without the highs and lows. My only concern--my future children. I do not have children currently, but I am a newlywed and we'd like to have children someday. My mother had bipolar and now I do. I don't want my children to have bipolar. So, do I just not have children? Do I adopt? If I want children, can I keep taking my meds? Do I try pregnancy without meds? Do I try it with meds? What are the repercussions if I stay on my medications while pregnant? What am I left to do? This is the biggest thing on my mind lately and I just wanted to vent here.
