**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 you.....so 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:)

*eyes a rolling*....are you on Medicaid? Are you unstable? Are you institutionalized often for your "anxiety" , leaving your children to depend on others to raise them? If yes...then no, you shouldn't have had all those kids. If no, then this post was clearly not about you.

I have anxiety at times. Should I not have my 3 children? *eyes a rolling*

Depends... if they are stable and the condition isn't disabling them... then yes they should be able to have children.

If you don't have any type of mental disorder, and you're not on medicaid, why don't you MYOB?
You don't know anyones situation, and who are you to judge them? Pretty pathetic.

Anxiety is not the issue there. Are you assuming that everyone with anxiety is like your sister?

Quoting Anonymous:

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!!

If someone, mood disorder or not, can not provide basic medical care for themselves and/or their child, they should not be having children.


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!

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that it's because she has depression and your post specifically states that she shouldn't be a mother because of it. You didn't say that you realize that a woman can have anxiety AND be a good person/mom, you said that they automatically should not be having kids.

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.

Don't pay attention to her idiocy mama. My sister has tourettes and OCD. She just had her second daughter and she is an absolutely wonderful mother!
