21 Aug 2007

21j female, want to sterilize.
Considering sterilization, I'm 21years old.
Yes i have a few reason to even consider it.
I had an abortion at the age of 16, wasn't my choice, i had to do it.
so I'm not sure if i want to have a baby, afraid something might go wrong.
Plus to top it all off.......
I'm diagnosed with bipolar mood disorder (manic depression - old term)
It's a hereditary illness - my brother and i have it out of 3children, came from my mother and she obviously got it via her mother.
So, can you see why I'm considering this????
the chances are 99.9% that my child will have it as well.

please tell me that what i'm considering, not madness is
