Guilt

Just found out my sister in law is pregnant again. My nephew is 5 years old and now that another one is one the way i'm really starting to feel left out. I'm 35 and i've never really wanted a child but i feel that any thoughts about having a family have been dampened by this dizziness and the lack of confidence that comes with it. I would deep down quite like to have kids but worry that i wont have the confidence to walk them to school, drive them to activities, take them places etc does anyone else feel like this now that the clock is really ticking. respect to those out there who have a family and deal with the dizzies at the same time, i would really appreciate your opinion (please dont be too harsh with me). My mother would probably tell me that my symptoms would disappear once i had to prioritise another human being (because she thinks its psychological) but i know they would be as bad if not worse

Re: Guilt

It depends on the cause of your symptoms. If it is a central disorder such as migraine, it could either make your symptoms disappear, or worse because of hormone changes. So if you wanted to have a child, I would do it because you dont want to have regrets.

Re: Guilt

I do worry about having regrets about it later in life but i really dont want to be a bad mother either, i think i would regret that even more. I dont even give my dog the life i had intended to because i'm put off doing certain activities, i already feel guilty about that. It is visual vertigo that is my main problem so it probably wouldnt be affected by hormones.
