I weed out of depression all the time!
Oh, wait. Homonyms! Damn!
that's totally what I thought when I read this entry, too.

That's definitely one of Andrew's reasons for not wanting kids, the others being that they're expensive and obnoxious.

I had them before I knew the extent of my hereditary mental illness.
Alicia is adopted. She's prone to anxiety and depression.
Julianne is biologically from a family full of the mentally ill on both sides and has the sunniest disposition known to mankind. It's all in the nature/nurture divide, kid.
julie is also still a youngin. i don't think my depression started kicking in until like 4th grade or something
Dude what do you want kids for now anyway? Be young and without such large responsibilities!
I do understand what you mean, though. I've though about the prospect of Aaron and I having kids sometime waaaaaaay down the line, and it will probably lead to a bunch of depressed French Canadian alcoholics. However, I think you and I would be in a position to help and be supportive and compassionate if that situation were to arise, because we know what it is and how it feels, for the most part.
I wouldn't worry about it too much, though, kids are silly and cost to much and make a mess and are generally loud and obnoxious, so I don't know why you'd want one in the first place :)
I'm still so wishy washy about it. People always look at me funny when I say that I have no idea if I want kids. I can't believe how often people ask me if I have kids just because I'm married.
