I realize this is an extremely late reply so my apologies.

In response on whether or not I would rather have not been born than have lived with Ich I would say yes I would rather have lived with ich. However, At times, particularly in my younger years it is been a painful life as we all know children can be quite cruel sometimes. Even in my adult life it has caused me pain and suffering and while it is something that makes me unique its not something im necessarily happy with.

I would love to have children, A family is one of my dreams but when I have children I would much rather have to live with this condition and go through the pain of it myself than to have my children go through it as well. I still do have every intention of getting married at some point and having children, I simply worry for their sake.
