My husband and I got married earlier this year in the hope of starting a family fairly soon.My husband has tourette's since a young age and up until now I have tolerated it to my best ability. I have anxiety and often suffer from panic attacks (usually about his TS). Of late I have been so pre-occupied with how I'd cope if our child was to inherit the tourette gene that it is affecting my life and our relationship. My husband doesnt want to talk openly about this, nor does he want to go to a counseller. He has threatened to leave me if I decide I wont have his children. I'm stuck and so worried at the position I'm now in. I truly thought I could cope but just the idea of bringing a child into this world with a condition I have little control over is eating me away. What should I do?
