I lost friends because they didnt want to hang out with someone who had a baby. They felt like it was a burden and I was never able nor willing to leave her at home so I could go out. I lost my social life in general. The people who I thought were my friends bailed on me. They quit inviting me places because I would always bring my daughter along. They quit coming over because they were tired of hearing her scream and whine for mommy, and me attending to her and not them. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if I didnt have her. If my friends and social life would stil be there. I feel like noone understands what I am going through. I graduated 6 months pregnant (boy was I called some nasty names by not only students but parents as well) all because I was 6 months pregnant and graduating. I didnt party that summer like everyone else, I started college 3 days after my high school graduation so I could guve my daughter everything that she deserves. I am now 21 (which I didnt celebrate by drinking, I celebrated it by staying up all night with a baby with an ear infection) I have no social life and I live the life as a married 40 yr old woman with kids. I never had a child hood. I have my own place and i cook I clean I work I go to school. I love my family more than words could ever describe. Consisting of me My 5 yr boyfriend and my daughter, I just sometimes miss being social and friends. Late night slumberparties with the girls. Gossiping and drinks at the bar. UGH. I just miss it.
