For the past couple weeks I've been really realy upset feeing like I've ruined my life and messed up really bad. I love my son to death and will do anything to keep him happy and healthy. But lately I feel like I screwed up for having him at 17. Like I'm going to mess up his life and like he will hate me for having him so young. I wont be able to go to his prom because of it. I can't work, I can't even attend highschool. I almost feel like regret having him. I don't want to feel this way. I feel like it's effecting me as a parent and I really don't want that.
The fact that I get put down for being a teen mom and constantly get dirty looks doesn't help either. I don't even like going out because of it. I also feel I've lost all my friends. I have tons of friends with kids bu none of them even want to do anything. I try planning things weeks ahead but then everyone backs out on me.
I guess I mostly just want to know if anyone else feels like they've ruined everything. Or am I just a bad mom for even thinking this? I really just don't know what to do at this point!!!
