Hey I’m Sarah and I grew up in a dirty trailer park with an evil mom who threw me out of her home just because I was a teen mom.
It all started when I was 14. I got into a relationship with an extremely manipulative boy. He convinced me that if I got pregnant, he would stop cheating on me and my mom would finally sober up.
I know it was stupid to believe him. And when I showed him my positive pregnancy test, he started laughing so hard he almost fell off his chair. I immediately realised that he had only been messing with me and getting me pregnant was nothing but a big joke to him.
Afterward, he told everyone in our school that he had pranked me into getting pregnant. And if that wasn’t bad enough, my former best friend wrote a post on Facebook, saying she was embarrassed to be friends with a pregnant trailer park girl like me.
I cried for days, because I had absolutely no one to support me. When I told my mom, she didn’t care at first. She said it was none of her business. But when my belly got bigger, I started to get a lot of attention from our neighbours and family members.
They were all very friendly and wanted to help me. But my mom hated that. She accused me of being pregnant to get attention. I told her that was ridiculous but she was so mad she said she would no longer support me financially and I would need to get a job.
Well, I quickly found a job at a kiosk. It was easy work, but being pregnant was so tiring that I fell asleep at the counter. And of course, someone decided to rob the store and he stole 20 expensive bottles.
When the owner of the kiosk found out what happened, he immediately fired me and refused to pay me my salary for the past 3 weeks of work.
I was so freaking mad. I even told my mom about what happened. And to my surprise, she got angry too. That’s why we went back to the kiosk at night and threw stones into the windows. I know this sounds crazy, but it felt so good to destroy something and for a moment me and my mom forgot about our silly feud.
But a few days later, in my 5th month of being pregnant, I was feeling so weak and exhausted that I couldn’t leave my bed anymore. I asked my mom to bring me to the hospital. But she said I should stop making such a drama and then she went back to watching ‘Judge Judy’.
Meanwhile, I peed myself because I lacked the strength to leave my bed and go to the bathroom. My last option was to call an ambulance and that’s what I did. But before they arrived I already blacked out. And the next thing I remember was waking up inside a hospital with a nurse right next to me.
