Anonymous said: Just saying, if you're so fucked up mentally that this is a concern for you maybe you shouldn't be having kids? Someone who is having panic attacks isn't going to be a good mom. If you're this concerned about your mental health suffering when pregnant, you won't be able to put your kids first because you'll be having panic attacks and shit.
Thank you, Doctor Anonymous! You’ve made everything so much clearer now! We should not let anyone with anxiety disorders or who is prone to panic attacks reproduce! Because they’d be terrible parents!
Oh wait, no.
(In reference to this post I made)
Oh, lovely, more people who think that- even if I want to reproduce someday- I shouldn’t.
Yup. Because apparently, ADHD, Aspergers and PTSD mean I’ll be an unfit mother.
I genuinely think people who think like this are probably children themselves who have had almost no interaction with the outside world.
We’d be pretty fucked if having a mental disorder means you shouldn’t have kids because your actually the MAJORITY of people are likely to suffer mental illness at some point than not.
Also post natal mental illness is a thing, what do women do when they develop anxiety ( or whatever else) after already giving birth? Give the child up because she obviously is s bad mother?
