      Hey everyone…

      I have been through teenage pregnancy… and would like to support anyone who needs help. Just tell me your story!


        Hi my name is Anna I am 15 and 6 months pregnant. I am a recovering crystal meth addict and homeless person. My boyfriend of 8 months and I moved from town into Sooke to live with my mom and get our lives stabilized. I got a job at Fields and he took a course that paid 8.00 an hour for training on how to be a good employee. We recently found out that I was pregnant (when I was five months) and even though it was hard, we’ve decided to keep it. Money shouldn’t be a huge problem, we have a savings fund set up that is rapidly adding up daily (100 dollars was contributed randomley just today) and we’ve accumaleted quite a few baby things, stroller, jumper, snugglies, clothes…etc. etc. but now and then I find myself bawling my eyes out uncontrallably. Sometimes I even feel that I don’ want the baby which makes me feel absolutely horrible and guilty…I just want to be able to provide and support our child and be the best Mom I can be but I am so terrified. I have lots of feelings of isolation and overwhelming loneliness…I have been having a little bit of nagging depression but after on suicide attempt a few years back that left me with an impaired liver and a trip to the psychiatric hospital I have chosen to remain here and do the best damn job that I can. I just feel so hopeless at times and I’m sure you can relate…This website may very well prove to be a blessing for me because I swear, I’m getting pretty tired of my old friends asking me if I’m drinking tonight and then looking really stupid and saying Oooh right…I guess I’ll see you around then. I just want someone to tell me that they’ve been there and that you can make it through all this. I’d love to here from you. Thanks, Anna


          Its good that you weren’t another girl that ‘Took the easy option’ and got an abortion.
          You will overcome that feeling of not wanting the baby, honestly i think all girls go through the stage of ‘will i cope, am i doing the right thing’! BUT once that baby comes you will forget all of that, its amazing how you change the moment you touch that baby:)
          Just tell your friends nicely Sorry i cant go out drinking but im pregnant and want to do the right thing. There is no harm is going out just drink non alcoholic drinks. You can still have all the fun.
