I have a mental illness called Depression and Anxiety. It runs in my dads side of the family and has just recently excalated the past few years. I'm on medication and see my dr once a month. I have seen many DrPhil episodes about mothers having mental illnesses and him saying that there is nothing wrong with that. I have heard from a lot of people that mothers with a mental illness shouldn't have their children, since they may not be capable to care for their children. I care for my children quite well I think, and have never been in trouble with the law, or anyone else for the matter for poor care. What do you think about mothers having a mental illness? Do you think they really can't care properley for their children?
