usually I'm cold and callous to those that self harm you're the exception anyway please stop burning yourself on purpose as someone who set himself on fire and opened a door to insanity I cringe at the very thought of someone purposely doing that to themselves
Start thinking about what is best for your baby more than about your own pain.
Those of us who had fathers who didn't really want us know that it is better to have no father present than one who is present, but neglects you. Yes ideally your baby would have two loving parents, but sometimes that just isn't how it happens. I raised my son without a father in the house for his first thirteen years and those thirteen years were better, as far as being peaceful, joyful years in our home than the ones after I remarried. The mere presence of a man and woman in the house does not make it a family.
You are thinking right. Is there something you can do to help yourself remember the baby when you are tempted to do anything harmful to yourself, since everything you do that hurts you also hurts your baby?
I'm sorry you are sad, but that precious baby, even if you choose to adopt him or her out, is every reason to take the best care of yourself right now. You yourself are reason enough, but I understand that you don't feel that way right now. I've been there, too. I entered counseling when I was pregnant with my son and started doing so for his sake, but along the way found out that I was worth trying to help, too. I hope you are able to come to place value on your own happiness and well being as well.
:D I read that you decided to keep her! Give her a hug from me when she gets her!
An eating disorder is habitual behavior of this type so if this is an isolated incident, no. However that isn't to say it couldn't turn into something more serious. You're pregnant and if you are malnourished your baby will be too. Remember that and look into getting back to work with your psychiatrist. It sounds like this is a time you could use the help
I urge you to get the help you need. If you can't afford it their are several programs that can help you qualify for assistance. You're not just worried about you anymore. You're going to be a mother. Also I urge you to consider adoption now. You could look into open adoptions where you would know the family and be able to see the child from time to time. These problems will only intensify when you become a mother. I'm not saying that adoption is right... I don't know you nearly well enough to make that recommendation. Just think about what will TRULY be best for your child.
I'm sorry... I didn't mean to insinuate in any way that you couldn't pay for or care for this child on your own. I don't know your situation at all. Good luck and the best way to take care of your child right now is to take care of yourself.
