I’m sorry I can’t add a picture because it keeps telling me my images are to big, but i would still like to tell my side.
Last year I became a single mother, my daughter’s dad has taken no responsibility, lied and didn’t support us any where throughout my pregnancy or after. He dated another girl behind my back and took her on holiday while I was 9 months pregnant, was told that my baby might not be growing properly and I’d just gone on to maternity leave. To find all this out with nothing to show from him but running myself into debt to try to buy for my baby put massive emotional pressure on me, On top of this I’d just moved into a beautiful but expensive flat with my sister that we’d saved to move into and I saw pregnant 3 weeks into it. It’s easy for my daughter’s father to say “I tried to trap him” but it doesn’t make sense and a complete cop out. I caught a severe case of prenatal depression and some postnatal so now I’m taking an antidepressant for the first time ever. I have worked as a chef for 12 years, and jobs throughout my teens but I can’t go back to the hours that chef life requires plus I already feel like I’ve had to miss out on my daughter. So I’m claiming benefits in the UK for the first time ever which isn’t the best feeling and with debts spiralling, I feel like I need the debts to go to start recovering properly and getting back on track. My daughter’s father left us homeless, no pram, no cot or moses basket so I had to move back in with my parents at nearly 29 and they luckily brought us a pram and moses basket or we would of been screwed at 9months gone. I went into labour almost 2 weeks early which was probably down to stress. Not sure what else to say but thank you for listening and hopefully helping us out
