I posted the other day about issues DP and I were having.
Basicaly I gave him an ultimatum to stop using drugs (he only uses a few times a year but it's the hard stuff) or I'm out. He gets violent when he uses and this is what has prompted me to ask him to go cold turkey.
He said he's given up enough for me already, and this was the last straw.
So I'm out.
I am heartbroken for my baby. I'm 23 weeks pregnant so she will never know what it's like to have mummy and daddy together.
I'm scared of doing it alone. How do you cope financially? I looked at the centrelink website and I have no idea how I am meant to pay rent etc. I can only claim new start right now and who is going to hire someone who is 23 weeks pregnant?
I wanted more for my baby. I know there are so many amazing single mothers out there...heck, my own mother was one. I just don't feel like I have the courage that you ladies do.
I'm in this state all alone, so I have no where to stay but with him for now. I have $100 in my bank account.
What a disaster!
