**Update concerning our unstable mommies out there**S/O.....should Moms with anxiety/mood disorders be allowed to keep having children?

In my honest opinion...I don't think they should. 

At least not if they are on Medicaid. 

****OK....let me just say...I should have been more clear. If you are on Medicaid, because you are unable to WORK because of your "anxiety or mood problems"....(Just stop acting like a drama queen and handle your shit)....then you shouldn't be popping out more babies.

I love how this post has turned into a giant sob story. Everyone competeing to see who is the most sad and unstable. 

Well, I hate to point it out to you...but if you are able to sit online and chat with other people, and function at this level, then you can get a job. Just because you are lazy, or had a shitty childhood, doesn't mean others should have to pay your way. It ALSO means that you shoudln't be on Medicaid..and that I also wasn't addressing this to please put that in your pipe and smoke it...lmao. 

I'm a very nice, kind person. I just have my opinions. If you don't like them, feel free to tell me why:)

Nope, I don't think they should. One of my sisters has 4 kids, all four of them have different dads, shes been in and out of the psych ward sense she was 12.  Her "anxiety" is so bad that she can't even spend time with all of her kids at the same time. She also recieves $850 a month for her "disability", and roughly $2500 a month in child support for all of her kids, food stamps and medicaid. All of her kids see a psyciatrist and need medication for some mood disorder. It's annoying because she fought for it to be a disability that way she could get food stamps and insurance without having to work. Which she got, but she works under the table so she makes an income, on top of what the state gives her, and the child support. Oh and her and her new husband are trying for another baby!!

lol...really? this, from the woman who typed a response longer than my original post. I think it may be YOU that needs a break from the internet and may want to get a "life"

Quoting BrookieCookie1:

 These medicaid posts are really boring and have been for ever now. They're really trite, actually. In all honesty, why not? If someone's on Medicaid then that means that their psychiatrist visits are free or way cheaper than the poor soul that gets socked for an 85.00 hr rate that most charge per hour of therapy, if you've got no behaviorial health care. And for that matter, who in the world isn't crazy in one damn way or another once you really, really know them? If you haven't figured any of those things out yet, thus realizing the sheer stupidity of your question, then perhaps you should quit focusing so much energy on writing pissy things under the guise of anonymity on your computer and get out and live a little or get a life!

As I stated in a previous post-ask people who have had to grown up with parents that had these issues and listen to what their perspective is. They know better than anyone else what a child goes through with a family like this.

Well, let's see.  You said that people who have a mental issue shouldn't be allowed to have kids if they receive Medicaid.  That right there is all that needed to be said to offend me.  Did I curse you?  Did I flip on you? No, so that should show you that I can keep it under control.  Not everyone who has something wrong mentally is bat shit crazy.

Quoting Anonymous:

if you are, as you say, a stable mom, whay would this offend you?

Quoting sweetmomma326:

This really offended me.  I was diagnosed as being bi polar and having depression and I am far from being an unstable mother.  I also received medicaid during pregnancy because I wasnt married at the time and wasnt allowed on my now fiancees insurance so I had to get it as I was a full time student and pregnant.  As long as its under control, they shouldn't be denied the right to have children.

I have anxiety. I don't have Medicaid, never have. My anxiety does not have anything to do with the children, nor does it affect my ability to care for children. I use all natural remedies, so its not like I'm ever zonked out or anything. That's a really strange question to me lol.

Just because you aren't diagnosed doesn't mean you don't have a mental issue. Some could argue that by simply posting this, that you may have some sort of disorder.

Having an anxiety disorder doesn't always mean menatlly unstable.

I have one and I am stable. If I don't tell people I have one they would never know. I am not hold up in the house afraid to talk to people.

There is a whole spectrum of severity to so make a blanket statement like that is ridiculous.

Quoting Anonymous:'re telling me that abortion is wrong and cruel...but bringing babies into this world that have to be cared for by a fucked up, mentally unstable mom is ok with you??

Ok, I get it now...
