Parenting and Mental Health
Introduce yourself 
9th-Feb-2008 11:53 am
Welcome to bp_parents. This community was created to fill a niche. Regardless of whether you are already a parent or are considering whether to start a family, this community is for you.

Introduce yourself, say hi, and meet others in your situation. My hope is that this community becomes a good place to come to talk to people facing the same issues and challenges as you.

I'm Rebecca. I have one boy who is 16 months.

I hope it is okay that I joined -- my husband is the one who has been diagnosed with a variety of mental illnesses (psychiatrists CANNOT make up their minds!), but we've been dealing with this together for quite a while now.

I'm Sarah. I do not have any children.

I love kids and can't wait to be an aunt (my brother and his wife are going to start trying for their first this year). I was never planning on having children at all, but recently have begun to consider the idea. That led to the creation of this community - I wanted a chance to hear from people with mental disorders who HAD made the decision to have children, and see how they do it, and have the opportunity to discuss and ask questions as my partner and I wrestle with the idea of starting a family vs. remaining childfree.

I live with my partner of 2 1/2 years, Alastair, and am the proud "kitty mom" to a former stray turned beloved housecat, Lucy.

Hi! I'm Liz, mum of Adam who's 8 years old and I live in Edinburgh, Scotland. I'm Bipolar, Epileptic, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Dyspraxic and a whole host of other things. I'm also Poly and Bi, living with my partner and my sons step dad grimgrim, who I've been trying to get pregnant with on and off for 4 years.
