Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Welcome to Just answer !
Well, yes it is important to disclose it to your psychiatrist that you are getting married since almost all the psychiatry disorders have a genetic predisposition that is they are liable to genetic transfer to the children from the parents , so in such a case the psychiatrist would like to give you and your would be spouse gentic counseling ..
genetic counseling that is ..
which is essential for being prepared for the future when you are thinking of starting a family..
Besides this the psychiatrist will also like to brief up your would be spouse about some finer points of your illness , obviously keeping in mind not to scare her ..
I agree, I am just concerned that he will say it's too soon. The real problem is that I am going to have difficulty telling my parents that I live with.
well sooner or later you will have to do it ..
and obviously you will not like to start a fresh relationship with a burden on your shoulder..
so it is better to be open about this right now and let the weight off your shoulder ..
That is true,plus I am 47 years old. I really love Mary, and want a lasting marriage with her.
i know this is going to be tough , what it is better for you is to disclose it now and be relaxed and live happily therafter ..
I agree. Thank you.
all you need is a bit courage and to go about this as a necessary chore for the sake of commitment to yourself and to your near and dear ones..
remember honesty is the best policy..
all this saying is old but has persisted for so long only because it helps ..
Yes, I agree, And my doctor is very supportive of me.
he is very good.
then please do not let this to tamper a good doctor - patient relationship and trust that exists between the two of you..
so kindly do the needful ..
and let him know of this ..
you are on the right track ..
should I let him know asap?
I have an appointment next week. I am so happy, though.
you can take some time to say 1-2 weeks to prepare yourself to be open about it ..
