Don't Want Kids, And A Question
I don't want kids. I don't have a maternal bone in me... for people. When everyone else is cooing over the baby in the room, I'm just not interested. However, I am VERY maternal when it comes to animals. I'm 27 and hope to be able to have a house by the time I'm 30 (my fiance and I rent now), and when I do I want a ton of cats and dogs. Maybe a bunny. Who knows! But no kids. And the older I get the harder it gets, because people just don't understand -- they can't envision that maybe, just maybe, what worked for them in their lives isn't for me. My family expects me to reproduce. Shouldn't they just be happy as long as I'm living a life I love? I'm not going to live my life the way others want me to.
Just venting some frustration (I feel like I have a lot of it lately)... I do have a question for the group, though. I'm currently on the pill (generic Orthocyclen), and I like it, but thinking about taking it for the next 25 years or so makes me a little dizzy. I'm considering a more permanent option, but I know doctors often resist giving patients without children those options. Any advice? I just don't want to have to worry about it anymore.
