My life before finding out I was pregnant was hectic. I had a 13-year-old who had gotten into legal trouble because of mental health issues and an energetic 4-year-old. I was working part-time and going to school full-time. I lived with my children in my home and recently started a new relationship.
When I found out I was pregnant, I honestly felt miserable. I cried every moment of the day. My anxiety and depression got so much worse. I was an emotional time bomb. I felt numb. I hated myself. I disliked my partner. But honestly, I was just ashamed…like I had let myself down.
I came to Care Net because I wanted to confirm my pregnancy and hear all my choices, even though my main focus was to get an abortion and put this all behind me.
