Our expert says:
Its as worthwhile and as challenging as if you're not bipolar. There are perhaps two issues for you here. One is the issue of ingheritance --- your children would have a mildly increased risk of growing up to be bipolar nthemselves --- but not a very high risk, unless you chose to marry someone who laso has Bipolar Disorder. The second would be whether you could face coping with the chores and anxieties of being a parent. Some Bipolars definitely do, a few thrive on it ; some can't face it. I can't tell which of those categories might fit you. Maybe CBT style counsellin could help you to feel more confident about coping with your self, and better able to assess how well you might handle parenthood
