If it were me (remembering I am not you ok) I'd pass. I'd pass because both of these illnesses are part of the addictive illness family.
I had a friend with bi-polar and have an aunt with alcholism. They really suffer and so does their family. We have schizophrenia in our immediate family so I was glad to do donor to factor out that particular illness.
I will never ever have to worry about 'looking for it developing' in our child.
I know once you have your heart set on a particular donor it is so hard to change tack but think carefully. Once you made the decision to not take this donor then you would move on very quickly to another donor.
Think very carefully about it (I can see you are already doing this).
Please excuse my bluntness in this email. I write with a caring tone even though you can't 'hear' it, best to you, THK
