    In My Dreams

    Even in my dreams I don't have children.  Apparently there is some part of me that is upset about that.  Last night I dreamt that I was pushing a stroller.  I looked into the stroller and it was totally empty.  Then I got really angry about the fact that I...

    We Have Enough People In The World As It Is..

    I have known for years that I will never burden myself by procreating. I have a hard enough time taking care of myself, never mind a couple of brats. It would also be scary to constantly think about how they will not have much of a future to look forward to. I don't think that I...

    It'S Because Of My Past And Future

    I didn't have a childhood. I was depressed, and bullied, and I hated myself and everyone else. I still occasionally think of that time, and it makes me shudder. I have to close my eyes and force myself to think of something else. My parents weren't supportive, and I felt judged...

    I don't think I could ever be a parent.

    After everything that I've gone through, I can't possibly go through being responsible for creating a person who will have to go through things like I have, and probably worse. I've come so close to killing myself, and I still don't know where my life is going, if it is even...

    I Hate Reruns

    I'll never have children because I don't want to raise them the way I was. The abused grow up to be the abusers, even if they don't mean to. It's a cycle and a very hard one to break. I don't want to be the next step in my family's dysfunction. Additionally, my family has a lot...

    They Wouldn't Be Loved.

    They wouldn't have the right father. If I don't love their father, I'm not going to love them. I'm horrible, I don't care. They're better off never being conceived. I'm not going to have sex with a stranger anyways. Goodbye little unborn babies.

    listen, im already a giant putrid pile of ****,

    alright. whatever makes people even come to the conclusion that i would ever feel the need to add even more putrid piles of **** to the planet is beyond me. I believe that it would be less painful for me (and probably everyone else) if i were to castrate myself with a rusty...

    never having children

    I was diagnosed with a rare type of blood cancer about two months ago.  Although I don't need any type of chemotherapy or radiation at this time, I will never have any children.  My cancer is related to my hormones and given the hormone roller coaster that...

    Sampled The Parenting Life. Didn't Care For It.

    I dated a single mother once. That gave me enough of a taste of parenthood to know that it wasn't for me. I had a vasectomy shortly after breaking up with her. It may not be the best thing I've ever done for myself, but it's definitely in the top five.

    There isn't a maternal bone in my body,

    I don't want marriage(NO illegitimates for this sister!),and the very thought of taking time and energy away from my academics/career building is unfathomable. A DDS and Phd are much easier to learn without something rearranging your insides or stealing your sleep. If I get too...

    I Have Put My Foot Down....

    I am a 32 year old man, and when I was 26 years old I had a vasectomy to ensure that I will NEVER be stricken down by the curse of KIDS. At the time my reasons were pretty much typical. I didn't want to interrupt my life, waste my money, and give up my freedom. I also didn't...

    I suffered how my mother treated me different

    because I was not the only girl. When she had my younger she completely forgot about me. And when I would fight with my brother I was the only one in trouble. I never wanted attention. That when I realized I'm never having Children never.
