No Room In The Womb.
Now this is a subject I feel strongly about. Should people who have life limiting illnesses have children?
Well we all want to live a normal life, but how normal can we make it without harming others?
I don’t want kids. That’s a decision I had to make at a very young age. With having a transplant the medications you take after could cause damage to the baby and could leave them deformed in someway. I am not saying it is impossible to have children after transplant as some women do they stop taking some medications so they can become pregnant but that can be a risky thing to do as your body could start to reject the lungs if you are not taking the medication.
Who am I to say how people should live there lives. In my opinion with having cystic fibrosis I would not have a child. You never know how fast you could deteriorate with this illness, I would hate the thought of leaving something I had created to fight on its own. Mentally I don’t think it is right.
But then who am I to judge I wanted a sister, so out popped summer. If I would of known I would of got this ill in the space of 2 years I would of never of asked for one.
I often think when I pass away. How she will act. Will she still be the same old happy child or would I of ripped all the joy out of her for simply not being there anymore. It’s heartbreaking for me to have thoughts like that in my head and as I am writing this tears are gently rolling down my cheeks but I can’t keep this bottled up people need to know how hard it can be waiting for an organ and how important it is to be on the organ register list how you could change not only the person but help save a family.
I hope I have not upset to many of you with my depressing thoughts please leave a comment below as to how you feel about this subject. Surely 1 of my
