Hello, my name is Rebecca I am 22 years of age and I am pregnant with my first child. I am single and having a very hard time with this. The father of my child is a low life dead beat who basically wants nothing to do with his son. I've decided on the name Aden James and he is taking my last name. I don't feel the father deserves to have the baby having his last name. I am worried if I will not have the money to take care of him alone, and am also worried the father can just come take the baby from me and not bring him back. I would like advice on what to do. Should I file for full custody as soon as the baby is born or should I let him fight when and if he decides to be in the child's life? This is the hardest thing I am going through. I am also diagnosed bi-polar, schizophrenia, depression, add/adhd and anxiety. Before I got pregnant I was on roughly 14 medicines and am now off of ALL of them. It is hard at times but I am so glad I am off of my medicines and actually am doing OK. The depression and stress gets to me a lot and I would like some mothers-to-be or mothers to talk to. I do have family and friends by my side I just feel so alone in this and would like some new friends to talk to.
