Hey. My friend just had her second kid a couple of months ago, and I have a confession to make: I low-key stalk her Facebook page for updates on her two little munchkins, because they are so freaking adorable. That being said, I recently had a conversation with my friend, R, who was recently diagnosed with bipolar, and I was telling her about some of my experiences living with it. Of these two events, the former got me thinking about my future kids, and the latter got me wondering how fucking messed up my kids will be, given all of the shit I have going on.
Would you like a list? Well, then here, have one:
- chronic Lyme disease
- high-functioning autism / Asperger’s (same thing now, apparently)
- alcoholism on both sides of my family
And I’m probably missing a whole bunch because there’s just so fucking much wrong with me.
I can’t make this shit up. Even soap operas don’t have characters with this much shit going on with them! My kids don’t stand a chance!
Do any of you have stuff like this going on? Do you ever worry about passing it on?
