I am 36 years old and my daugher is 18. As soon as people find out i have any 18 year old they usually give me dirty looks like I was so irresponsibile. The worst is at my office job. When i was a teenager I lost all my freinds after telling them I was prego and didnt have much family support and the father left me. Most people are starting to have kids at my age in my office. One girl always wants to call me out. SO WHAT COLLEGE IS UR DAUGHTER GOING TO... She wants everyone to know i had a daughter in my teens. Cause once they look at me they think you have a daughter in college. Then I have to explain YES I HAD A KID WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER! They always look at me with disgust. I just don't know how to handle this anymore. I am tired of the dirty looks from people and I have no freinds. Its so lonely being a single mom!!! Any suggestions?
