I guess this hits a sore spot with me. Our son has bi-polar and is very easliy controlled with therapy and meds. No one, to our knowledge, in either family, has bi-polar. There is some depression and I have anxiety but just like someone else said, if this was the issue, no one would have kids. Mental illness can occur without the family history. Have as many kids as you want!!! It's your life![/b]


I think mental health issues are the least understood... when I read what people say about them in the other threads, it just proves it to me.

Amen to that. There are MANY people in my family that we don't talk to, about it because they just know the stereotype "crazy" people. They would never understand because of the stigma attached to mental illness
