Feeling overwhelmed and looking for some words of advice or maybe just some shared stories (laughs or tears?!) Thought I was doing the right thing in telling my ex (never married) found out I was pregnant after we split (5 year relationship ended BADLY). My son is now almost a year old and we are in a horrible custody battle. Having to see my son's father is pick-ups/drop offs/dr appts is horrible - the insults, curses, degrading remarks...telling me I'm unfit, a bad mother, etc. None of these things are true (I'm a professional, college educated, 37 year old, own my own home, financially stable, etc).
Anyway - feeling very alone - very confused --- very down... you hear something enough you start to doubt yourself...
