I am wanting to maybe have kids in the next year or so if I get married and I am really scared about the illness and pregnancy and possible episodes or postpardom depression. Do they take you off meds completely? Does anyone have any experience with this and can give me some insight of what to expect. My Dr says I will be a high risk pregnancy and my mom thinks I should adopt. I want to have a baby of my own but I am really scared for my own health and for my babys if I do have one. Any advice or experiences would be helpful. My man doesn't totally get why I am high risk even though he knows of my illness a little. Also I currently don't take meds except occasional anxiety pills the birth control pills have helped the past 12 years to stablilize my hormones and moods and I am scared to death once I am pregnant to be off of them and that I might get really sick and have to get back on meds or get hospialized again. Should I be this worried? Sorry this is kind of a personal question and if you all don't want to share it this way send me a message. Thanx. I can tell I am manic tonight I am worrying about everything I am not even married or ready to have kids right now but am just worrying about it for the future.
