I have been diagnosed with depression, and have been dealing with it my whole life. It has grown and turned into full on panic attacks, which I suffer through on a fairly regular basis. There are time when I wonder whether or not I'm borderline OCD and/or bipolar. My great aunt is bipolar. My mother has type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and multiple sclerosis, and she also has suffered from depression her whole life. I really do want to have children someday, but I worry so much that when that day comes, will they be plagued with this horrible illness?
