  • First I would find someone to talk to, like a counselor. If you cannot afford one go to your local Department of Mental Health for a free or really cheap licensed therapist. You've got to let this all out so you can be emotionally ready for when your baby gets here. Also, if there are people in your life that complicate it, get rid of them, surround yourself with positive people that can provide you with the support you really need. As for the finances, I know it may not be what you want to hear, but you may qualify for some public assistance. When the baby is born he/she will qualify for their father's social security benefit (Contact your local SSA or go to SSA.GOV for info). If you were married you may qualify for the benefit now, so that should help. Do the best you can and allow yourself the time to breath. Best to you and your little one.

  • So sorry for your loss. When it comes to futures tripping, it is usually fear based. Fear is False Emotions Appearing Real. Thoughts are powerful. "Worrying is like a rocking chair, it will give you something to do but won't get you anywhere." We can go through some pretty difficult times in life. For me the biggest coping skill is to redirect my thinking to gratitude. Even though a counselor or whatever can be helpful the problem is that usually they tend to focus on "the negative" side of what has happened or our fears. Acceptance and action are much better tools. As hard as it is, build yourself up and take things as they come. You will be OK. Keep telling yourself "right now I am OK". It is soothing and will help to calm those thoughts. Expectations are another hard thing. Wipe them out and just take today. It is all we have. Keep your chin up and believe in yourself. Hugs !!

  • Thank you very much, my main problem is me worring about what is or can happen in the near future and how would I be able to tell my babyboy that his father is gone. I need to stop working about things I cannot change and do better
