> I chose NOT to risk passing on my depression to another. Go for adoption!

Adoption is a great option to have. But I'm conceited enough to believe that I have gifts to offer as much as any "curse" to any children I might have. Given the increasing understanding and treatment of depression and other mental illnesses, and the proactive position most or all of us take towards managing our "beast", then who is to say which would be the greater "tragedy" -- giving life to a child with the curse we have, or denying life to a child who could bear our gifts?

I might have a few bad genes, but I think I got some pretty darn good ones as well, and more of them then the bad.
