Is it selfish for me to want children when depression runs in my family?

My maternal grandmother had severe depression, my mum has it and has been on medication for years. I've had it most of my life and I'm trying to hold out but I think there's a fair chance I'll need to start taking them one day in the future.

not reallly. if the depression hasnt hindered your life to the extent that you'd struggle to care for your kids, then its not really selfish, its just life.

that being said, feel free to adopt.

No.

My Mom has battled and lost against bi-polar and booze her entire life.

I'm glad to be alive, as are my 4 siblings.

Tons of people have depression, they'd probably be abnormal if they didn't have depression; don't let these cucks prevent you from having children.

I'm in the same boat OP, I would like kids but but I'm a social reject with severe anxiety and depression and a family history of those and alcoholism. Honestly I think it us selfish unless you have the means and will to observe them closely in childhood and if they show signs of anything getting them into therapy asap.

I struggle with depression and GAD inherited from my mom and resent her for it. I know it's not fair but there are so many days where I'd rather be dead that I can't help it. I personally will never pass on my fucked up genetics but ymmv.
