Iḿ 17 weeks pregnant and suffering with extreme depression. My finance is not a very nice person and well before I fell pregnant (unplanned) I was planning on leaving him and moving on because well he is to put it plainly abusive. He does not physically abuse me but does so emotionally and verbally. I am currently with him only because I cannot afford a child and myself on my own. I have a very small income due to being a mom in South Africa and Have no family either. I am totally alone. Have no one to talk to or confide in. If he knows that I talk to people about how I feel he shames me and reminds me of what a useless piece of sh*t I am. I have come to a point where I have decided I no longer want to occupy this earth. I would never hurt my child in any way or form, I have planned to birth my son and give him to his father and his family whom will love him very much. As it has been made clear to me the only reason I am tolerated is because I am pregnant with their blood other than that I will never be welcome, and just disappear. More than likely my child will grow up to treat me the same as his father and I don want to be around to see that as it will break my heart. I am useless anyway and offer nothing to my son but heartache and stress and I never ever want him to feel that way. (He is kicking while I type this) I have not spoken to any of my friend as well they wont understand. I just don know what to do anymore. Iḿ stuck with no where to go or to fix this.

Stand still and see the Salvation of God! You are here for a purpose and you have been chosen as mother to carry your child!

I know you're feeling overwhelmed but your primary focus is remaining in a healthy physical and emotional state for yourself and your baby.

Is there anyone you can talk to? Family or friend. Perhaps you might consider doing some volunteer/charity as therapy for you. It can be very rewarding and refreshing.

God Bless
