I’d like to ask your opinions…
Im 31, undiagnosed with Transverse Myelitus 18 months ago. So in limbo unless another attack happens.
Me and my boyfriend were going to plan for a baby but maybe not for another couple of years, due to money etc and generally not feeling ready quite yet.
Due to this ms like attack, i feel like we should try for a baby now, because what happens if i have another attack before having a baby, then i have to go on medication etc, then stop it to try for a baby?
It’s such a sh** situation to be stuck in.
If i start trying for a baby now, i’m asking myself am i being irresponsible bringing a child into this world when i am potentially going to have an incurable disease that i possibly cannot cope with, giving a child a miserable life to see an ill parent?
I simply don’t know what im doing to be honest and i dont know what to do.
I can’t get any support from neuro or doctor etc as i am not diagnosed yet so they still speak to me like nothings wrong.
I can’t imagine not having a child and i dont want this to stop me but i dont want to set myself or a child up for heartbreak.
Have any of you got any experiences or advise about this sort of situation?
Thank You T x
