At the young age of 27 I’m considering a vasectomy. It’s not a new thought, I’ve been considering it since I realized I was bipolar at 16.
Given a family history of mental illness, heart problems, and diabetes there are plenty of reasons to do it.
People keep telling me I’ll want kids someday and I’ll regret this decision, but it’s not that simple.
Any children I would have would likely suffer from some mental illness. I’d rather be disappointed that I didn’t have kids, than heartbroken watching my child battle depression, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia.
Remember to smile,
