  • Listen to me... the only mistakes we make in life are the ones we do not learn from. You are not stupid! You are a free thinking person. You can put two thoughts together and complete a sentence. Stop telling yourself all the thing you are not and start telling yourself all the thing you are.

    You are a strong woman with a beautiful son. Your journey is tough but it is your journey. Keep moving forward for yourself and for that little boy. One step, one day. Get off this site and do a search for places in your area that you can go to get the help you need to start over!

  • Get out and I say that with kindness. You will never have or reach any of your dreams or goals if you stay with him. You will be in that cycle for the rest of your life and those cycles almost always get worse. Good Luck

  • I was a teen mom, illegally homeschooled (so I couldn't graduate- legally, I have no education), living on my own with my child at 17, met my now ex husband... an abusive, alcoholic, drug addict, career criminal- none of which I knew until it was too late. I lived in misery and fear for years. I barely made it out alive. But I'm here now, because I left.
    I left with nothing but myself, some clothes and 2 of my 3 children (he abducted our eldest son).

    My SO and I have been living happily together for 2 years now, despite it all. WITH my children, and they love each other.
    Any man who would turn away from you because you are a mother is not worth the time of day.

    As for the herpes, 75% of the american population has it. It's a simple fact of the dating pool and why practicing safe sex and being tested regularly is an absolute necessity. You won't be shunned because of it.

  • There is NO reason why he should be looking for LSD, a trip is stupid excuse. If he won't clean himself up, don't let him drag you down. Good luck (c:

  • You need to get out of that situation its not health for you or your son. And there is someone out there that will treat you right you just have to give him time to find you.

  • Time to move on and when you get tired of being tired and love is not enough you will leave and you will reach your goals.

  • You deserve better, and your son deserves better. I think you just need to make up your mind that you are getting out and start taking steps to do that. It won't happen overnight, but just knowing you are working toward it might be a light at the end of the tunnel and kind of liberating. If you don't start planning on getting out now, you are going to be in no better shape in another give years. He won't change, you will be miserable, and your son will be learning how to be a man from what he sees everyday. Just because you married him and had a baby with him doens't mean you have to punish yourself for the rest of your life by staying with him. Your post is well put together and makes sense so I don't believe you are stupid, you just need to get out there and locate some resources to get your life back on track. Don't let this man take your confidence in yourself- we are women and can do whatever we put our minds to. GL!
