It’s not the only reason but it’s the main one. I was raised in a traumatic environment and I carry a lot of weight mentally. I don’t have too much patience especially with kids. I have Crohn’s and what if I’m flaring when my kid needs me? What if I give my kid Crohn’s? I would not be a good parent. They say to break the cycle but I really don’t think I’m qualified to raise a kid in a healthy way. Do any of you relate to this?
Not the main point of the post but the other reasons I’m cf is the genetics, money, and it’s not just 18 years. This kid will likely know you until you die and I don’t want that.
